Function

Biomac C provides initial erosion protection to seed and young plants from the extremes of rain, wind and sun during the critical germination and development stage.

Biomac C is supplied in different grades for erosion protection and soil stabilisation projects. The choice of coir mat is dependent on the slope gradient, rainfall intensity and application.

Applications

Biomac C300 is ideal for re-establishment of steep slopes on road embankments as well as for overland flow channels and grass spillways. Where a higher level of protection is required or where the application is on steeper slopes (>2:1) then Biomac CJ450 is suggested.

Advantages

  • Seed protection against rain impact and wind
  • Moisture retention to soil
  • Soil and root insulation to temperature extremes
  • Natural material for environmental acceptance

Installation

Biomac C is laid on prepared slopes which are normally pre seeded. Biomac C can also be used on slopes which are planted out. Steel staples or Biopegs are used to hold down Biomac C and maintain good intimate contact with the soil.
