American Excelsior Curlex® - The Original Erosion Control Blanket
American Excelsior Company is the inventor of biodegradable erosion control blankets. Developed in the early 1960s, Curlex excelsior blankets are specifically designed to actually promote ideal growing conditions for grass seed, while simultaneously protecting topsoil from wind and water erosion. Curlex excelsior blankets have long passed the test of time. 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.
Curlex Single Net (Curlex I) This is the one that started it all - the erosion control blanket that literally defined an industry: Curlex I. Born in 1963, Curlex I continues to set the standard for a majority of erosion control blanket requirements. A specific cut of Great Lakes Aspen curled wood excelsior with 80% six-inch fibers or greater fiber length. It shall be of consistent thickness, with fibers evenly distributed throughout the entire area of the blanket. The top of each blanket shall be covered with photodegradable or biodegradable netting. Material is naturally seed free and does not contain chemical additives. Roll Sizes 4' x 112.5' (50 yd2) 8' x 112.5' (100 yd2) 16' x 112.5' (200 yd2)
Curlex Double Net (Curlex II) A specific cut of Great Lakes Aspen curled wood excelsior with 80% six-inch fibers or greater fiber length. It shall be of consistent thickness, with fibers evenly distributed throughout the entire area of the blanket. The top and bottom of each blanket shall be covered with photodegradable or biodegradable netting. Material is naturally seed free and does not contain chemical additives
