Depending on the conditions of your location, erosion control problems need to be addressed by products that are reliable and diverse and those that can handle the environment in that location. Erosion control mats can stabilize areas such as construction sites, lakes, restoration projects, etc.
Floods rushing down the hillside or droughts caused due to dust storms can lead to soil erosion. A global problem, soil erosion is considered as one of the most spectacular natural occurring due to its stunning results. For example, the Grand Canyon is a result of soil erosion. Soil erosion control becomes a necessity when the redistribution of soil does not take place as predicted. Erosion control mats that are made out of PVC Geotextiles are an extremely effective solution.
Natural control of erosion can also be accomplished by establishing plantings that can prevent soil erosions but the process has its own limitations. There are several products that are designed to keep erosion at bay and can significantly impact the effects of erosion.
Three-dimensional fiber technology mats are an amalgamation of organic and synthetic materials. They are PVC Geotextiles that deliver long-term protection for erosion and reinforce the roots and stems to promote vegetation. It offers, probably, one of the most effective forms of erosion control. There are several benefits of erosion control mats:
- They come with a unique trilobal cross-section that helps capture soil, seed and water to facilitate the growth of vegetation
- It provides both short-term and long-term protection
- Design life can extend anywhere between 10 and 25 years
- It also provides superior UV resistance
- Time and labor costs are reduced with its ease of installation
Engineered polypropylene mats provide better cost savings over traditional solutions.
