Erosion Control Coir Mat
Coir Rolled Erosion Control Products
Coir Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECPs) are some of the strongest and longest lasting erosion control products on the market today. Also known as Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs), coir mats work to increase soil stabilization, decrease erosion and allow vegetation to effectively take root. Coir mats are made from a natural and biodegradable coconut fiber. Coir erosion control mats are the perfect option for environmentally sensitive areas, steep slopes, or climates where shade or cold temperatures increase seed germination time.

Rolled erosion control products (RECPs) are a natural way to control erosion in areas with either temporary or long-term erosion control needs. Designed to offer a environmentally sensitive solution to erosion control, each coir mat is designed to biodegrade over a specific period of time. As the coir matting degrades, the erosion mat will work to enrich the surrounding environment and contribute to extended vegetative growth.
Semi-Permanent Coir Erosion Control
Typical Lifespan: 4-6 years
Some of the most commonly used coir matting models are those designed as an open weave style mat. Offering a higher strength design, this type of erosion control matting is able to accommodate areas with steep slopes or increased water flow.

- Control Mat 60
- Control Mat 70
- Control Mat 90
Semi-Temporary Erosion Control Mats
Typical Lifespan: 9-24 months
Semi-Temporary Coir Mats offer a perfect medium between long term control and short term straw mats. Featuring a blend of 70% wheat straw and 30% coconut fiber, these straw coir mats are able to offer an extended lifespan in a standard RECP design. Models include:
- Control Mat OCF 30: Mattress Coir stitched between two organic jute nets.
- Coir Straw Mat: 70% Wheat Straw and 30% Coconut Fiber, stitched between two synthetic nets.
Temporary Erosion Control Mats
Typical Lifespan: 6-9 months
Short-term erosion control mats are ones made from wheat straw, jute, and/or excelsior wood materials. These types of erosion control blankets typically last around 6 to 9 months and are used in level areas with low slopes or low water flows. Mats include:
- Jute Mats
- Straw Mat
- Excelsior Mat

Permanent Erosion Control Mats
For long term erosion control, we also offer a UV stabilized synthetic fiber mat (also known as a turf reinforcement mat or TRM). Turf reinforcement mats contain heavy duty synthetic materials. They are not biodegradable and should not be used in wetlands or environmentally sensitive areas. For more information read our blog about Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs) and Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs).
Erosion Control Anchoring and Accessories
Regardless of which erosion control mat you choose, every product requires stakes, staples or pegs to install. For these and more accessories, please contact our sales team. Options include:
We also offer 75 foot economy priced coir roll for stormwater management, erosion control, landscaping, roofing applications and more. It is backed with a figerglass mesh for structural strength, and can be easily cut to fit your application. See pricing here on our GEI Works Webstore.
