Premier Straw blankets are degradable erosion control blankets consisting of the finest straw fibers available. Depending on job site requirements, a variety of QuickMow, environmentally sensitive, and stronger netting types are available. At a standard width of 8 feet, which is 18 inches wider than conventional straw blankets, our Premier Straw blankets are specifically designed to provide you with the most effective installation widths available. Lightweight and easy to handle, you can rely on AEC Premier Straw to hold its own in the everyday basic blanket applications. Premier Straw blankets are available individually wrapped or in master packs to allow for mechanical unloading and stacking.
Straw/Coconut & 100% Coconut
AEC Premier Straw/Coconut and AEC Premier Coconut blankets are degradable erosion control blankets consisting of the finest agricultural straw fibers and the highest quality strands of coconut fiber. By adding 30% coconut fibers to the AEC Premier Straw blanket the straw/coconut blend of fibers can extend the degradable life to 12-18 months depending on job site conditions. The 100% Coconut can provide longer erosion protection life up to 36 months. Lightweight and easy to handle, you can rely on AEC Premier Straw/Coconut and AEC Premier Coconut blankets to provide a high degree of erosion protection and longer life than single or double net straw blankets. AEC Premier blankets are available individually wrapped or in master packs to allow for mechanical unloading and stacking.
American Excelsior Company is the inventor of biodegradable erosion control blankets. Developed in the early 60’s, Curlex excelsior blankets are specifically designed to actually promote ideal growing conditions for grass seed, while simultaneously protecting topsoil from wind and water erosion. Curlex excelsior blankets have long passed the test of time. By design, Curlex blankets have a built-in swell factor – wet curled excelsior fibers sightly expand in thickness and interlock to form a strong, fiber matrix. This allows the fibers to provide intimate contact with local terrain.Water flow is trained to follow the curled fiber matrix. The roughness of the curled excelsior matrix slows the velocity to a point where gravity takes over, which allows moisture to slowly seep into the topsoil to promote ideal
