Coir Fiber Matting for Restoration

Erosion Control Mats

coir fiber matting for restorationQuestion: I am in need of coir fiber matting for restoration projects. I am looking for an erosion control mat that I can use for a coastal saltmarsh restoration project. I was looking at your coir fiber mats in the restoration section, and I was wondering if these erosion control mats are always made from coconut fiber? Would they work in my location?

Answer: Thank you for contacting us! In general, Erosion Control Matting can be made from a wide range of materials including straw, wood shavings, coir, and even polypropylene materials. However, often during restoration projects there is a large need for an erosion control product that is both high in strength and environmentally friendly.

Erosion Control Mat Details and Specifications


erosion control matsThe coir mat can be ideal for restoration projects as it is both natural and high in strength. When compared to other natural fibers, such as straw or wood, the coir material is higher in strength and offers a longer-lasting structure. This can help stabilize your area long enough for plant life to grow and establish roots.

Most coir mats are made using a coconut fiber material. This material consists of coconut husks that have been soaked for added strength and flexibility. These fibers are then placed together to form stable mats or blankets.

Coir Fiber Matting For Restoration Options


erosion control mats for steep slopesThe coir mat is offered in a couple of different strengths, depending on your project requirements. Choosing between these mats is often dependent on conditions in your location such as water flow, required strength, and slope steepness.

For instance, if your area for erosion control is particularly steep (1:1) or if it has a high flow, stronger fabrics such as the Coir Mat 90 are a good choice.
