Erosion Control Blankets

Erosion Control Blankets

Benefits and features of RECPs

  • Reduce run off.
  • Consistent quality and performance.
  • Retain more water than hydro mulch covers.
  • Reduce sediment concentration and soil loss.
  • Excellent performance in strength and durable under high velocities.
  • Vegetation performs better with blankets than with hydro mulches.
  • Ease of installation.

Application of RECPs

Erosion control blankets are used to prevent surface erosion and accelerate the establishment of vegetation. Typically, blankets are intended for the following applications:

  • Slope protection.
  • Channel and ditch linings.
  • Reservoir embankments and spillways.
  • Culvert inlets and outfalls.
  • Dikes, levees and riverbanks.

How They Work

Erosion control blankets provide a mechanically stabilized form of immediate cover, functioning as a barrier against both the detachment and transportation phase of erosion process until vegetation or reinforced vegetation assume this function.
