Biomac® blankets are used for surface erosion protection. Also known as Rolled Erosion Control Protection (RECPs) mats, they provide immediate protection to vulnerable slopes to the effects of erosion such as wind, rain and surface run off. Placed onto topsoiled and seeded slopes, Biomac® supports the establishment of vegetation. As the mat biodegrades over time, the protection function is maintained by the vegetation.
Coir Logs are often used within water courses to provide immediate erosion protection to vulnerable river channel banks that are suffering erosion and undermining. They are often used in situations where remedial works have been carried out and when vegetation has been lost on the river banks. Without protection and assistance to revegetate, the vulnerable exposed soil can easily wash away.
