Soil erosion can be a serious problem. Fortunately, most of the problems associated with soil erosion can be controlled or prevented with the use of East Coast Erosion Control blankets and mats. East Coast products are of the highest quality and designed to solve all types of erosion problems.
East Coast Erosion Control manufacturers rolled erosion control products, sediment devices, hydromulches, and open weave textiles (OWTs). Each product class is manufactured for specific service lives and erosion and sediment control application conditions. Our three-dimensional blankets and mats allow for optimal rainfall absorption and create ideal conditions for maximum seed germination. This quick establishment of vegetation helps prevent the erosion of topsoil by the forces of water and wind. Topsoil erosion control helps avoid costly cleanups and extensive repairs to slopes and vegetation.
- Mulitple manufacturing facilities ensure faster delivery times.
- Superior product quality enhances erosion control while fostering vegetation and improved germination times.
- Our state-of-the-art manufacturing process delivers better product performance.
- We offer multiple erosion control matrixes to cover a wide range of applications.
- Easy product application and installation procedures.
- Rolled edges on products achieve wider width of product usage–increasing installation efficiency and minimizing waste on site.
- We standardly offer 4 ft., 8 ft., and 16 ft. widths on rolled products and custom lengths to match your job site specifications.
- Higher permissible shear stress levels make our blankets stronger than most competitors.
- Ease of installation can save up to 25% in time and labor on most jobs.
- Palletization allows for efficient handling and transportation.
- Blankets are tightly woven, with seams 1.5″ apart and stitches 2″ apart.
