WESTERN EXCELSIOR EROSION CONTROL PRODUCTS

Western Excelsior's Excel CS-3 Erosion Control Blanket (ECB) consists of a blended matrix of coconut fibers and straw. The matrix is composed of 30% coconut fibers and 70% certified weed free straw and is stitched between two nets. Excel CS-3 is available with photodegradable, synthetic (Regular) or biodegradable (All Natural) netting. The Excel CS-3 ECB provides erosion control for a period of up to twenty-four months and serves as a mulching layer. Actual longevity depends on soil and climatic conditions. Available in a variety of roll sizes, Excel CS-3 provides reliable, economical erosion control, ideal for slope projects that would benefit from longer lasting erosion protection and improved mulching. Excel CS-3 is also recommended as a degradable liner for channel projects. Like all Western Excelsior products, Excel CS-3 is made in the USA and yields LEED credits for the end user. In addition to a complete suite of standard documentation, detailed information on the advantages and properties of the product are provided below.
