Soil Stabilisation

CoirFence™

CoirFence™ is a system designed for easy creation of retaining geocells, and stabilisation fencing, on embankments where top soil is vulnerable to slippage during vegetation establishment.

Soil Stabilisation

The tough CoirFence™ strips restrain and reinforce the friable surface mantle; providing stable conditions for an effective binding root mass to development and penetrate the underlying subsoil, or fractures and fissures in the bedrock (where density and shear strengths are higher). The coir fibre fencing also act as a wick which encourages infiltration of water - reducing surface runoff and improving soil drainage.

Shoreline Re-Establishment

The system has also been successfully used on water margins to encourage sedimentation and the regrowth of reed beds. The low CoirFence™ diamond grid dissipates energy from incoming waves, while trapping and filtering out sediment from water passing through it. The system therefore protects both the newly formed sediment deposits and young reed plants until vegetation is well established.

Ecologically & Economically Desirable

CoirFence™ provides a flexible, effective, and practical, natural fibre alternative to non degradable synthetic geotextiles, or expensive and labour intensive wickerwork. The system is also kind to the environment as the coir fabric decomposes gradually over 5 to 10 years, integrating with the soil and newly developed root network
