Western Excelsior manufactures a full line of Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECPs). Excel CC-4 consists of a machine produced, clean coconut fiber matrix, manufactured for consistent coverage and thickness. The coconut matrix is confined by a UV stabilized photodegradable, synthetic net on top and bottom, mechanically (stitch) bound on two inch centers. Excel CC-4 is intended for slope or channel erosion control applications requiring up to thirty-six months of functional longevity. Actual field longevity is dependent on soil and climatic conditions.
Western Excelsior's Excel CC-4 Erosion Control Blanket (ECB) consists of a matrix of 100% coconut fibers stitched between two nets. Excel CC-4 is available with ultraviolet stabilized, synthetic (Regular) or biodegradable (All Natural) netting. The Excel CC-4 ECB provides erosion control for a period of up to thirty-six months and serves as a mulching layer. Actual longevity depends on soil and climatic conditions. Available in a variety of roll sizes, Excel CC-4 provides reliable, economical erosion control, ideal for slope projects that would benefit from the longest lasting and highest performance erosion protection. Excel CC-4 is also recommended as a long lasting, degradable liner for channel projects. Like all Western Excelsior products, Excel CC-4 is made in the USA and yields LEED credits for the end user.
