Erosion Control Coir Mat
Coir Rolled Erosion Control Products
Coir Erosion Control Mats (RECPs) are some of the strongest and longest lasting erosion control products on the market today. Made from a natural and biodegradable coconut fiber, these mats work to increase soil stabilization, effectively decreasing erosion and allowing vegetation to effectively take root. Coir erosion mats are the perfect option for environmentally sensitive areas or steeper slopes.

Coir Mats (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 product is designed to biodegrade over a specific period of time. As the matting degrades, it 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 or geotextile style mat. Offering a higher strength design, these mats are able to accommodate areas with steep slopes or increased flows.

- Control Mat 60
- Control Mat 70
- Control Mat 90
Semi-Temporary 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 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
One of the shortest term erosion control coir mats are ones made from wheat straw, jute, and/or excelsior wood materials. These mats will 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
For more information on these materials, please check out our Straw Erosion Control Blanket Page.
Permanent Control Mats
For long term erosion control, we also offer a UV stabilized synthetic fiber mat (also known as a TRM) that contains heavy duty synthetic materials. These mats are not environmentally friendly and should not be used in wetlands or environmentally sensitive areas.
Erosion Control Anchoring and Accessories
Regardless of which 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 figerblass mesh for structural strength, and can be easily cut to fit your application. See pricing here on our GEI Works Webstore.
