Coir geotextiles are a type of woven fabric made from coir fiber yarn that is used to control soil erosion and condition soil. They are naturally resistant to rot and mold, and they are cheaper than synthetic geotextiles. The woven fabric has square mesh gaps positioned at 1/4″, 1/2″, and 1″ and is available in different weights of 400 gm/m2, 700 gm/m2, and 900 gm/m2. The coir geotextiles hold soil in place, prevent erosion, and dissipate the force of heavy rains and run-off water. They also promote the growth of new vegetation by absorbing water and preventing topsoil from drying out. Coir geotextiles are strong and durable, protecting slopes and helping natural vegetation to take root. Over time, the eco-friendly and biodegradable coir disintegrates completely, leaving only humus.
The common varieties of coir geotextiles:
- 400 gm/m2
- 700 gm/m2
- 900 gm/m2.
Two variants of Geo-Textiles fabrics:
1.Woven Fabric Geotextiles.
The available size of rolls for coir geotextiles is 2 meters in width and length ranging from 10 meters to 50 meters. They are used in various applications such as
- Erosion control
- Slope stabilization
- Soil bioengineering.
Coir Geotextiles FAQ
What is coir geotextiles?
Coir Geotextiles protect the land surface and promote quick vegetation. Geotextiles are a wonderful treasure of natural echo-friendly, erosion-control blankets in woven and non-woven preparations. Totally biodegradable, geotextiles help soil stabilization and renew vegetation in varying slopes.
What is the use of coir geotextiles?
Coir geo-textiles are used for the improvement of sub-grade soil strength in road pavements and stabilization of side slopes.
What are the different types of coir geotextiles?
Coir fibre is available as woven geotextile, nonwoven geotextile (or coir needlefelt), and coir logs ie; logs of coir fibre. The woven geotextile is generally available in 400gsm (gram per square meter), 700gsm, and 900gsm thickness.
