Erosamat Type 1 erosion control mats consist of a dense mesh of jute fibres and are designed to reduce erosion by absorbing the impact of rain bombardment and reducing run-off velocity, thereby helping prevent erosion from occurring.
The seeds for the required vegetation are usually laid beneath the Erosamat erosion control mat, although it is also possible to hydro-seed over the top of the sheet once installed. The mat protects the soil until the seeds have germinated and a root system is established, thereafter the Erosamat Type 1 slowly biodegrades to release nutrients and improve the soil quality whilst the root structure protects the soil.
Jute construction offers an environmentally friendly solution to short-term erosion control applications where vegetation is supported
