Erosion Control Blankets
Biodegradable blankets keep the soil moist and in place on the slope during the initial plant growing cycle.
These blankets promote vegetation growth when combined with your gabion structure, and help retain the important topsoil for vegetation growth. This range of products is of utmost importance in protecting the earth against soil erosion.
Their purpose is to keep the soil moist and cool during the initial growing phase of young plants and seedlings, encouraging vegetation growth before the soil is moved or transported away in heavy rains. Both the woven and non-woven blankets are eco-friendly and degrade into the soil over time, providing nitrogen into the soil during the initial growth phase.
We offer rolls of biodegradable soil blankets for installation in areas where soil erosion is a pressing problem on steep slopes or newly constructed fills. These blankets can be made of hessian, jute, coconut fiber and synthetic materials for a slightly longer lifespan. Ranging from a life span of about 6 months to 3 years for the synthetic blankets.
These products are laid over and pegged into the soil on steep slopes and promote water and fine soil particle retention and the subsequent support of plant root growth.
Roll sizes available are dependant on grade or product type requested, contact us for further information. The Coir blankets are supplied in rolls, 2m wide x 50m long, Jute blankets are supplied 1.22m wide x 100m, the green blanket is 4m wide x 50m, product masses range from 200-450g/m2.
