Made of natural agricultural straw and fibers, and stitched together with degradable thread to a double layer photodegradable polypropylene netting. The Fibromat Biodegradable Erosion Control Blanket (ECB) immediately reduces soil erosion losses by 85% after installation. Subsequently, effective grass establishment is achieved by hydroseeding. It is the best Erosion Protection System that uses together with hydroseeding.
The Fibromat Erosion Control Blanket, also known as Paddy Straw Blanket, Palm Fiber Blanket and Coconut Fiber Blanket is great in absorbing and dissipating energy released by heavy rainfall. In other word, soil, seed and fertilizer are protected from being washed away. Furthermore, by inducing greater surfaces roughness, the Fibromat Erosion Protection System reduces velocity of runoff, and hence the capacity of runoff to detach and transport soil particles. It is noteworthy that the Fibromat Slope Protection Blanket also improves soil fertility as its biodegrades by improving the organic matter content and buffering capacity.
Functions and performances:
- Immediate effectiveness
Upon installation, FIBROMAT ECB covers the whole soil surface, immediately reducing soil erosion lesser by 85%, or greater, compared to unprotected bare soil.
- Rainfall protection
FIBROMAT ECB absorbs and dissipates energy released by heavy rainfall. Soil, seed and fertilizer are protected from being washed away.
- Reduction in runoff velocity
By inducing greater surfaces roughness, FIBROMAT ECB reduce velocity of runoff, and hence the capacity of runoff to detach and transport soil particles.
- Improved soil fertility and moisture retention
FIBROMAT ECB improves soil fertililty as its bio-degrades by improving the organic matter content and buffering capacity.
- Protect young grass
FIBROMAT ECB prevents washouts of seedlings and drought stress. In addition reinforcement of the vegetation matrix is provided by the polypropylene netting. Cost effective and user-friendly
- Cost effective and user-friendly
Ten unskilled labourers can install up to 10,000 m2 in one day and many times faster than conventional turfing. Costs of installation are therefore reduced and the period of the soil exposure is minimised.
