Overview

Curlex® III is a heavy duty excelsior erosion control blanket specifically designed to provide extended protection for grass seed and topsoil from wind and water erosion for 24 to 36 months, while simultaneously promoting ideal growing conditions on steep, long slopes and/or in channel applications. Excelsior blankets do not contain any chemical additives, weed seed or foreign matter.

Curlex excelsior blankets have long passed the test of time. By design, Curlex blankets have a built-in swell factor - wet curled excelsior fibers 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.

Slopes 1H:1V & flatter
Shear Stress 144 Pa (3.0 lbs/ft²
Permissible Velocity 10.5 ft/s (3.2 m/s)

More Info

American Excelsior Company is the inventor of biodegradable erosion control blankets.  Developed in the early 1960'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.

By design, Curlex 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.
