Fabric wrapped soil construction is one of the most resilient bioengineering techniques to stabilize streambanks. This technique relies on the strongest type of coir fabric construction to reinforce soil lifts, high density plantings of rows of willow cuttings, native seeds, and in many cases a reinforced stone toe to protect against toe scour. Like all bioengineered designs using degradable fabric, the concept is to rely on fabrics during the initial (three to six years) soil stabilization period. As the fabric degrades, the installed vegetation provides the necessary erosion protection and aesthetic benefits. KoirWrap™1000 & KoirWrap™ 1200 are excellent fabrics for this type of bank treatment.
KoirWrap™ 1000 & KoirWrap™ 1200 is a double-layered biodegradable erosion control fabric made up of an outer layer of high strength continuously woven coir matting and an inner layer of lightweight jute fabric connected together at regular intervals. KoirWrap™ 1000 & KoirWrap™ 1200 is ideal for fabric wrapped soil construction on steep slopes and along streambanks.
