Excelsior Erosion Control Blankets

Excelsior blankets consist of unique softly barbed, interlocking, curled, Aspen excelsior fibers. They are weed seed free. Excelsior blankets are available with a variety of environmentally sensitive and/or stronger netting types to match job site requirements.

Excelsior Blankets

Developed in the early 60's, excelsior blankets are specifically designed to actually promote ideal growing conditions for grass seed, while simultaneously protecting topsoil from wind and water erosion. Excelsior blankets have long passed the test of time. By design, excelsior blankets have a built-in swell factor - wet curled excelsior fibers slightly 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 growing conditions.
