River Bank Erosion Control Mats
River Bank Erosion Control Products are typically biodegradable products used to stabilize banks and slopes along a moving river. Made from high strength fibers, these products are designed to hold up against currents and flows. Below you will find more information on common erosion control products used to stabilize slopes and banks.
River Bank Erosion Control Products
Due to the high demands of water and currents on these products, the most commonly used erosion control material in these areas is coconut coir. Derived from the husks of coconuts, these fibers are high in strength and designed to last anywhere from 2 to 5 years.
One of the most commonly used products for river bank stabilization are the Coconut Coir Logs. Coir logs feature an outer coir twine netting filled on the interior with mattress coir fibers. Standard length for these logs is 10 feet. Multiple logs are typically joined together via coir twine until they reach their intended length.
By contrast, Coir Erosion Control Mats will typically only feature the woven netting portion, allowing this stabilization netting to be installed directly along the river banks. Depending on the slope of the banks in your area, mats will feature different open weave sizes. The smaller the weave openings, the steeper the slope they will be able to be used on.
Depending on the slope and the water flow in your location, different matting options or sizes may be able to work better than others. A combination of both materials may also be available to help with erosion along your bank.
