Coir is naturally resistant to rot, mold and moisture. It does not require chemical treatment and can be spun and woven into matting. It provides adequate strength and durability to protect slopes from erosion while allowing vegetation to flourish.
Coir erosion control blankets, also known as coconut blankets or coir blankets, are used extensively for slope stabilization, landslide stabilization and river-bank protection. They are easily transported and deployed; they can be secured to the ground, eventually becoming part of the soil structure.
The blankets are environmentally friendly and do not pose potential contamination risks. Hazardous chemicals or synthetic materials are not used within the matrix, and over time, coir completely disintegrates, leaving only humus.
Coir blankets are also excellent for use in landscaping, vegetation control and sediment control. Coir fibers have an advantage over synthetic fibers. They retain their physical properties while being water absorbent. They store up water and build an ideal microclimate for the seeds underneath. Of all natural fibers, coir has the greatest tensile strength.
All erosion control blankets are manufactured using natural coir fiber. A PP netting or a Jute netting holds the fiber together. Following are the standard sizes of the blankets produced by Coir Green:
