Coconut Erosion Control Blankets

Coconut and straw/coconut erosion control blankets are among the many types of rolled erosion control blankets (RECPs) available from Hanes Geo Components. They provide mid to long-term protection for seed and soil from the erosive forces of water and wind on newly seeded slopes and channels. "100% coconut" blankets, netting stitched to top and bottom sides of the coconut fibers, provide erosion protection of up to 3 years. "70% straw / 30% coconut" blankets, nettings stitched to the top and bottom sides of straw/coconut fiber blends, provide erosion protection of 12 to 18 months. Heavier-duty coconut blankets provide increased resistance to erosion and longer effectiveness. The nettings and stitching are typically made from synthetic materials; however, these blankets are also available with biodegradable nettings and stitching for environmentally sensitive applications. Synthetic nettings with longer UV protection are also available.

Please contact your local Hanes Geo Components location (or call us toll-free) for the blankets available in your area.
