CoirLog and CoirPallet

Hy-Tex CoirLog and CoirPallet biodegradable, coconut fibre bio-roll and mattress substrates work in harmony with nature, to protect and support banks, and shorelines, while promoting restoration of wetland environments.

Erosion Control

The dense coir fibre CoirLog rolls dissipate wave energy, protect against water scour, and retain the bank while plants develop.
Similarly, the dense coir fibre CoirPallet pads shield the ground from weather and water erosion, and the fine fibre matrix of both substrates also filter out silts and promote sedimentation.
Consequently general water quality is improved through the ability to control erosion and counteract non-point source pollution.

Vegetation Restoration

Hy-Tex CoirLogs and CoirPallets provide an ideal, stable growth substrate for marginally plants - encouraging rapid establishment of plant colonies and healthy root systems.
They are therefore particularly beneficial on projects where no suitable soil medium exists (e.g. steel/timber pile, or gabion, faces and floating islands).
Native plants can be selected for their suitability to physical conditions, the feed and cover offered to aquatic species and wildlife, or aesthetic reasons.
As roots mature to create an effective binding matrix the coir fibre progressively degrades, leaving a vegetation framework for a full wetland community.

Key Features

CoirLogs and CoirPallets are made from virgin coconut fibre encased in knotted coir or polypropylene nets.
CoirLogs can have optional pre-formed plant holes can be incorporated in them to simplify placing of marginal plants, and special compounds can also be added to enhance moisture retention on sites with fluctuating water levels.
