American Excelsior Company realizes project owners, consultants, specifiers, and landscape contractors wish to have a choice when selecting erosion control blankets (ECBs). Our Premier Blanket manufacturing process starts with choosing only top quality, organic, weed seed free, agricultural straw fibers or top quality strands of coconut fiber.
Premier Straw/Coconut blend is designed for mid to long-term erosion protection and vegetation establishment on slopes, channels, and shorelines. Premier Straw/Coconut ECB combines 70% straw with 30% coconut to create a longer life ECB than standard Premier Straw® ECBs. These Premier products have longer duration photodegradable, UV enhanced netting on both sides. Our 100% jute netting - is available for environmentally sensitive areas while maintaining performance standards.
Material CharacteristicsPremier Straw/Coconut Blankets are degradable, consisting of the finest weed seed free agricultural straw fibers and the highest quality strands of coconut fiber. By adding 30% coconut fibers to the Premier Straw ECB, the straw/coconut blend of fibers can extend the degradable life up to 24 months depending on job site conditions. Lightweight and easy to handle, you can rely on Premier Straw/Coconut blend to provide a high degree of erosion protection and longer life than single or double net straw ECBs.
Our Premier Straw/Coconut blankets contain 70% straw and 30% coconut to provide mid-term erosion protection and vegetation establishment on slopes, channels, and shorelines and are recommended for slopes of 1:1 or flatter.
They are also available with 100% jute netting, for environmentally sensitive areas while still maintaining performance standards.
