Coir Geotextile

Coir as a natural organic product is arganically biodegradable. The Fiber is hard and strong and decomposes slowly, making it perfectly suited for use in Geotextiles. Coir Geotextiles provide good support on slopes for about five years and there is no need for post-installation work. Coir Geotextiles is developed by the Coir Board of India.

The world has today accepted Coir Geo textiles and acknowledges its effectiveness. Coir Geotextiles, used in many kinds of applications like Slope Stabilisation, Controling Soil Erosion, Road and Rail Embarkments, River Embarkments, Landscape Areas etc.,

Classification of Coir Geotextiles:

a) Coir mesh mattings of two - shaft weave

  • Simplest form of Geotextiles
  • Manufactured by either traditional handlooms or in the Anugraha looms
  • Openings between the strands give the grass or vegetation Plenty of growing room
  • Appropriate for erosion control applications

c) Coir bags made with latex backed coir matting

  • The bags are stitched with the latex facing inwards
  • Withstands powerful waves apposite for sea erosion
  • Normal size is 6ft by 4ft
 
 

     

 
B. NON-WOVEN

a) Coco Logs

Coir Logs are strong and flexible and designed to aid in stabilization and re-vegetation of erosion prone sea shores. Tubular netting with compact rolls of coir fiber web covered by coir mesh. Coir logs are often used on steep slopes or areas with exposure to waves or currents which cause instability on a site.

b) Coir fiber beds

  • Pouch shaped with mesh matting packed by way of coir fibre
  • Used as wave energy dissipaters
  • Thickness varies from 10 cms to 25 cms as per requirement
 
 

 
c) Coir needled felt

Coir fibers are rolled into sheets to form Coir Needle Felt Material. This material has wide range of application. Pad shape prepared by interlocking coir fiber through needle punching. Appropriate for cost effective acoustic control, air & water filtration and thermal insulation
