General Information 

Coconut fibre Erosion Control Coir Mesh gives immediate protection against soil and seed loss caused by wind and rain erosion, and promote the establishment of vegetation.

Product Information 

ProCoir™ Mesh is an open weave, pure coconut, erosion control mat designed for use in areas where plants are slow to establish or with highly erosive environments and harsh climate conditions.

Coir Mesh controls soil loss and promotes sedimentation, creating a micro-climate that is favourable to plant growth. It shelters seedlings against windrock and decomposes slowly to provide prolonged protection.

Product Range Includes:

  • Weight- 400gsm, 700gsm and 900gsm

Features and Benefits

  • Suitable for a broad range of climatic conditions
  • 100% biodegradable
  • High surface cover
  • Low cost

Applications

Typical applications of coir mesh, include riverbanks and drainage channels, exposed sites such as uplands or coasts, wildflower areas in need of restoration, and recreation areas where abrasion is high.

• Erosion Control
• Re-Vegetation
• Stream Bank Stabilization
• Soil Erosion Control
• River Embankments
• Landscaping

Installation

Installation of ProCoir™ Mesh is simple.

  1. Prepare Site:   Prior to installation area preparation is vital, this includes clearing all rocks, greenery, weeds and rubble to ensure you create a levelled soil subgrade for the Matting to be placed on.
  2. Install Coir Mesh:  It is strongly recommended that Coir Mesh be laid in direction of the flow of water.   Edges should be protected from the flow of water and wind, by overlapping the mesh.
    If installing on embankments, a trench at least 200mm is required at the top to lay mesh into, pin down and backfill.  Pins should be approximately 500-750mm apart and generally 2-3 pins required per m2.
    Allow the mesh to follow the natural contour of the terrain, do not apply tension to the mesh when laying.  This will prevent suitable connection with the soil subgrade and could affect vegetation growth.
