Geo-textiles are made of pure coir, drawn from the husk of the coconut without adding any synthetic material, and a 100% natural product. It is used as a Blanket to prevent soil erosion, accelerates growth of vegetation on banks and slopes. The distinctive feature compared to conventional geo textiles is that it is used for soil stabilization, reinforcement, and landscaping and erosion control.
Advantages of Coir Geotextile
Geotextiles have been named as Best Management Practice by many Environmental and Governmental Organizations in helping reduce soil loss and establish new vegetation. They are widely used for civil engineering applications and slope stabilization applications as a mechanical strength that is necessary to hold soil in place and prevent erosion. The nettings break up the runoff and dissipate the energy of flowing water. Coir also promotes the establishment of new vegetation by absorbing water and preventing drying out of the top soil and seeds.
