Erosion control coconut matting – The surface cover is an important factor in erosion control because it reduces the impact of raindrops falling on bare soil and wind picking up soil particles. It also reduces the speed at which water flows over the ground. The risk of erosion is significantly reduced when the soil cover is greater than 30%. Full coverage can be achieved for many grazing and cropping systems.
Runoff concentrates as it descends the slope. When a river flowing into a large basin reaches the coast, its width is usually several hundred meters. While surface coatings help disperse runoff, runoff concentrations are unavoidable. Coordination at the catchment level is important for the implementation of flow control measures. Runoff can cross multiple properties and multiple roads (sometimes railroads) as it travels from the furthest part of the watershed to the main drainage channel or river.
Coir Geotextile for Erosion Control Coconut Matting
Erosion Control Mat is a natural geosynthetic erosion control product which is a flexible and lightweight 3D mat made of high-strength coir geotextiles which is used to protect the surface of a slope or to protect against the soil erosion, reduce emissions and promote infiltration. Erosion protection mats do an excellent job of protecting the soil surface from washout and the rapid formation of lawns.
In other words, the stabilized coir geotextile for erosion control reduces the possibility of erosion caused by other heavy rains and provides a green layer of vegetation on rivers, banks, lake edges, steep slopes and grassy marshes. Vegetated erosion control mats not only prevent soil and sediment erosion, but also provide excellent filtration and vegetation, improving soil conditions and slope stability.
Woven Coir Geotextile Erosion Protection Mat
A wide variety of anti-erosion mats are commercially available; however, for most applications, they fall into two main categories: those with biodegradable elements and those made entirely of polymer, designed to last longer. In fact, most erosion control mats are designed to allow the establishment and maintenance of a vegetation cover. In most cases, it is this vegetation that gives the greatest positive effect in terms of preventing erosion. So when choosing an erosion control product, we need to consider what we can encourage to grow in it, how long it will take to build, and how we can support that growth throughout the season.
The use of erosion control mats will be beneficial in the following applications:
• Riversides and swamps
• Shores of the lake/reservoir
• Earth dam
• Liners for waves and sinks
• Landfill coverage
• Embankments and embankments (eg roads and railways)
• Noise separator
• Channel/overflow protection
Application of coir-based geotextiles for soil control
The erosion control coconut matting can be used effectively in many situations. Whether for erosion control above, below or below surface water or on dry slopes, suitable coir geotextile options are available for all conditions. The three-dimensional and flexible coir geotextile matrix adapts to smooth surfaces. Reinforcement grass is laid on a prepared soil base without stones, clods, roots and other irregularities. Once in place, the erosion control agent can be seeded and covered with soil or mulch. Its open structure provides space for the soil and promotes the growth of roots and plants. As the roots grow, they tangle together in threads, anchoring the vegetation and creating a stable canopy. The Coco geotextile is also an ideal substrate for lawns. Coir geotextiles have been tested by many independent organisations.
