These blankets are used primarily to slow water runoff, provide effective sediment and erosion control, and enhance re-vegetation. These blankets are commonly applied to channel and ditch linings, slopes, culvert inlets and outfalls, riverbanks, and levees. Erosion control blankets are classified as short term, long term, or permanent use, mostly based on whether vegetation is intended to replace or work in conjunction with the blankets.
Strands of coconut fiber are intertwined and evenly distributed in the erosion control blanket and stitched with a UV-enhanced black net on top and a UV-enhanced green net on bottom.
