Salix’s CocoNet is manufactured from ethical and sustainably sourced coir fibre, a by-product of the coconut industry.

CocoNet is a strong hand woven biodegradable net made to our unique specification under licence in Sri Lanka. The hand woven net increases surface cover and surface roughness, which are key properties in controlling soil erosion.

CocoNet can be used in high flow areas or where vegetation establishment can be slow.

Additional performance can be achieved by laying C125BN fully biodegradable Coir Blanket under the CocoNet to retain finer soil particles.

CocoNet can be supplied in roll or bale form and is secured using biodegradable timber fixings to provide a 100% biodegradable erosion control system.

CocoNet BN

CocoNet’s performance can be enhanced by adding an underlying biodegradable coir filter. This filter provides greater protection from soil erosion under flowing water.

The CocoNet provides a robust surface protection and when combined with the coir filter provides the highest performing fully biodegradable erosion control system.
