These erosion control blankets are designed to meet all stormwater management regulations. The product is an ‘easy install,’ with detailed installation recommendations, installed in the same direction water flows. Erosion Control Blankets are thick, fibrous blankets woven out of either natural materials (e.g., straw and coconut fiber), synthetic materials (e.g., polypropylene), or a mixture of natural and synthetic materials. These blankets are used primarily to slow water runoff, provideeffective sediment and erosion control, and enhance revegetation. These blankets are commonly applied to flow channels and ditch linings, steep slopes, culvert inlets and outfalls, riverbanks, and levees.Erosion control blankets are classified as short-term, long-term, or permanent use, primarily based on whether vegetation is intended to replace or work in conjunction with the blankets.
- Slope protection
- Channel and ditch linings
- Reservoir embankments and spillways
- Culvert inlets and outfalls
- Dikes, levees, and riverbanks
Before installing AEC Premier Straw erosion control blankets, the owner's representative should inspect the seedbed to ensure it has been properly compacted and fine graded to remove any existing rills. It should be free of obstructions, such as tree roots, projections such as stones, and other foreign objects. The contractor should proceed when satisfactory conditions are present.
After the area has been properly shaped, seeded, fertilized, and compacted, AEC Premier Straw erosion control blanket should be removed from the protective cover.
Next, locate the start of the roll, making sure the roll is facing toward the area to be covered, and then roll out the blanket. The blankets should be rolled out flat, even, and smooth without stretching the material.
