What are the functions and advantages of coir mat?

Advantages of coir mat slope protection

coir mat construction

Coir mat, also known as natural hemp coconut solid soil blanket, is a new type of degradable blanket-like material made of upper and lower layers of reinforced mesh and a middle natural coconut fiber mesh, processed by sewing technology. It is a commonly used material for river ecological slope construction and mine remediation and environmental restoration, and can effectively play the role of slope protection and greening.


Environmentally-friendly grass blanket protects the soil and strengthens the slope, windproof and solid. The rough surface of the environmentally-friendly grass blanket is laid on the slope to prevent water and soil erosion, and "shelt the wind and rain" for plant growth. Provide nutrients and promote plant growth. When the environmental protection grass blanket itself is degraded, the vegetation just takes shape. At this time, the plant root system is reinforced and the effect of soil consolidation appears. The plants play the main protective role. The environmental protection grass blanket can improve the soil environment of the slope to a certain extent. , can promote plant growth, and at the same time, well-growing plants can in turn stabilize the slope environment, forming a virtuous circle, and then better slope protection and greening, protection and beautification of the environment, and beautification of nature.

The foundation must be soft and flat, without sudden height changes, hollows, cracks, frozen water, plants, sharp stones, wooden sticks, construction gravel and other foreign objects that may damage the coconut silk carpet.


When laying the coconut silk blanket, it should be laid from top to bottom, and the laying should be smooth without wrinkling, and U-shaped nails should be lapped at the joint of the two blankets.


Use U-shaped nails to fix the overlapping parts and edges of the coconut silk blanket firmly.


Manually spread the soil evenly on the integrated plant fiber blanket (coconut silk blanket) (to avoid large soil clods affecting the germination rate). The thickness of the covering soil is 25mm~50mm, which can be loam or fine sand.


After the soil is applied, spray water on the surface of the covering soil on the coconut silk blanket to completely soak the coconut silk blanket, and then spray once in the morning and evening, and the spraying water should be sufficient to maintain humidity.

Features of Coir mat


The material of the coconut silk blanket and the three-dimensional structure of the slope protection net make the coconut silk blanket not only reduce the evaporation of surface water, but also absorb and store water by itself, saving 50% of water compared with other greening projects, thus reducing irrigation and maintenance costs.


The coir mat uses plant fiber as the carrier, which has good degradability, no pollution to the environment, and is ecological and environmentally friendly. After the coconut silk blanket is laid, it can effectively prevent the damage to the slope by unfavorable factors, and play a physical role in protecting the slope and plants.


Coir mat effectively changes the temperature and humidity of the slope, gathers fertilizer and preserves moisture, improves the growth conditions of plants (water, heat, light, fertilizer), and is especially suitable for dry and barren areas.


The construction is fast and the cost is low. Compared with other slope protection materials, the construction is convenient and fast. It can lay 2,000 square meters in one day, saving labor, time and cost.
