Coir geotextiles follow the contour of the soil surface & serve as slope stabilization agents prior to revegetation.
Coir geotextiles are classified as woven, meshes and nets and non woven, as the blanket held by coir threads. Coir geotextile nets have varying densities depending on their application, but as a whole they serve as slope stabilization agents prior to revegetation.
Coir geotextiles promote new vegetation by absorbing water and preventing top soil from drying out. Coir geotextiles absorb solar radiation just like natural soil, and unlike geosynthetic materials, it provides good soil support for up to three years, allowing natural vegetation to become established. The greater the geotextile density, the steeper the embankments it can be utilized on. Applications have included ski slopes and bottom reinforcing material in water courses. (Under water the degradation of coir is slower). Over a period of time, coir which is ecofriendly and biodegradable completely disintegrates leaving only humus.
