TEC Mat® Coir Mesh 400gsm is a natural fibre matting made from 100% natural coconut fibre that is spun and woven into a matting available in various grades. TEC Mat® Coir is an open weave geotextile that is fully biodegradable adding organic matter to the soil. As coir is an abundant and renewable resource, TEC Mat® Coir is widely used in civil engineering, landscape and slope stabilisation applications. When vegetated, it has the mechanical strength necessary to hold soil in place and prevent erosion. The coir netting slows down runoff from heavy rains and dissipates the energy of flowing water and wind.
TEC Mat® Coir Mesh 400gsm also promotes the growth of new vegetation by absorbing water and preventing the topsoil from drying out. TEC Mat® Coir has double the life of jute and higher tensile strength than other organic geotextiles with longevity of around 3-5 years. This allows ample time for natural vegetation to establish and therefore stabilise the area.
TEC Mat® Coir is ideally suited for preventing and controlling erosion even on steep slopes. When installed according to our recommendations and planted into or seeded, the TEC Mat® Coir will not only stabilise the area but also retain moisture and assist seed germination.
