Benefits of Extended-Term Erosion Control Blankets
Extended-term erosion blankets are ideal for construction projects that have greater slopes and require longer protection. Erosion can tie up projects and compromise the safety and integrity of developed land. Blankets shelter soil and vegetation from the elements. This keeps the soil stable while holding in moisture and supporting faster growth. Extended-term blankets allow vegetation to grow into the netting, which prepares it to withstand future impact.
Our blankets are also effective against erosion caused by water flow. In the event of heavy rainfall, the flooding of nearby waterways or established channels, extended-term blankets help keep flow and runoff from carrying the soil away.
Some of our extended-term erosion control blankets are also biodegradable and decompose after they’ve served their purpose. East Coast Erosion biodegradable erosion blankets are valuable tools because they help protect sensitive environments.
Uses of Extended-Term Erosion Control Blankets
Project needs can vary among engineers and construction companies, especially in terms of longevity. The main use of extended-term erosion control blankets is to keep soil and new seeds safe from the effects of wind and rain. Whether you’re managing a mine reclamation project, construction project or oil drilling site, erosion control blankets help stabilize the land for your building or site restoration. What sets these blankets apart is their functional longevity — this makes them ideal for applications in challenging projects.
There are many projects that involve sloped land, which is at a higher risk of erosion. East Coast Erosion has engineered extended-term erosion control blankets that can handle terrain with up to 1:1 slopes.
Whether for unreliable terrain or environmental hazards, there are a wide range of reasons you may need an extended-term erosion control solution. Engineers and their erosion control installation teams may use extended-term erosion control solutions for stream restoration projects to help grow healthy vegetation near waterways. Parks also use extended-term blankets to keep their soil in high-quality condition.
