Turf Reinforcement Mat


East Coast Erosion Blankets’ coir yarn mats should be an important part of any natural and environmental friendly -basedbest management practice system for soil stabilization, sediment retention and vegetative establishment. Coir fiber is a 100% natural organic product free of chemical additives, obtained from the outer layer of the fruit of the coconut tree. The fiber is then woven into mats have high tensile strengths with an installed functional longevity of four to six years. They can absorb 150-200% water by weight and minimize evaporation loss, allowing the rainfall to be available for the establishment and support of vegetation. They contain no synthetic nets and are wildlife friendly. Coir mats are totally biodegradable and convert into mulch that improves the organic composition of the soil.

EC Coir Mats are ideal for soil bioengineering and wetland restoration projects due to the open weave that allows planting through the mat without cutting the coir twines. The open weave also allows for seeding after installation.


Proper handling of EC Coir Mats will help assure maximum effectiveness. Elevate EC Coir Mats off the ground and cover adequately to protect them from site construction damage, rainfall, flames, sparks, excessive temperatures and any other impacts that may damage the physical properties of the mats.


East Coast Erosion Blankets’ EC Wattle is an excellent best management practice device for the minimization of accelerated erosion and the resulting sedimentation. The EC Coir Log or called Wattle is made from coir fiber and bound by coir twinethat has a high tensile strength and an installed functional longevity of twoyears. Coir wattles are made with 100% natural organic fiber and are free ofsynthetic netting or chemical additives. Coir wattles absorb 150-200% water by weight without experiencing physical property alterations and are ideal for water-associated stream bank, lakeshore and coastal restoration and protection projects. Coir wattles are totally biodegradable and convert into mulch that improves the organic composition of the soil. Coir wattles are flexible and are easily installed.


EC Coir Wattles are ideal for perimeter control of sediment-laden run off from construction projects. They can also be used on steep slopes to reduce slope length and do not need to be removed after completion of the project, as they are 100% biodegradable. Similarly, they can be used as check dams in waterways and swales and provide an excellent growing medium for plants within the channel. They are the optimal best management practice choice for restoring eroded stream banks, lake shores and coastal areas.

They can be installed at the toe of slope of the eroded banks and shorelines and resist the forces of velocity and waves. As a stream bank restoration device, they capture upslope eroded soils, as well as sediment dropped out during high flow conditions. The trapped sediment, along with the coir wattle provides an excellent growing medium for the establishment of riparian zone vegetation. Plant plugs can be installed directly into the coir wattle to promote quicker establishment of vegetation.

Refer to the East Coast Erosion Blankets’ EC Wattle installation guidelines for perimeter control, slope length reduction and check damsat www.eastcoasterosion.com.


Description: Coir fiber is obtained from the bristles of the outer layer of the fruit of the Coconut tree and is 100% biodegradable.

Coir Mats are woven with coir fiber yarns providing strength, environmental friendliness and functional longevity in excess of three years. The Coir Mats are available in three weights: EC-4Y – 400 grams/sq. meter; EC 7Y - 700 grams/sq. meter and EC 9Y - 900 grams/sq. meter (14, 22 and 30 oz/sq yard, respectively).


Erosion Control Blankets are used on slopes, channels, & disturbed soils to stabilize & provide immediate protection from surface erosion until vegetation is established & a root structure developed. We carry a complete line of erosion control blankets & installation materials to meet any specifi c erosion control, sediment control, vegetation establishment, & vegetation reinforcement needs. Our erosion control blankets are available in both Photodegradable (UV) & Biodegradable nettings to meet short, medium & long term solutions. All our blankets are made in the USA & yield LEED credits for the end user.
