Erosion control

Light weight netting for erosion control blankets


TENAX bi-oriented (or stretched) polypropylene nettings show outperforming features on lightness and mechanical resistance.

They can be easily coupled with natural or wooden fibers to realize erosion control blankets for embarkments or slopes.

Bi-oriented nets are produced with weights and meshes suitable for any application.
