Coir nets are a combination of strong coir fibers for use in certain purposes. They can withstand various pressures with various weights and environments. It is part of a biodegradable product.
However, it is classified as having extra resistance and strength compared to other biodegradable products. Twine, which is the original material, has proven to be very strong. You can ensure the capability to withstand various situations.
Especially you can use these fibers form a net for certain activities. Estimation of this quality is to last up to 48 months depending on climatic conditions. It can use for a long time in various functions.
Coir Nets Functions
In accordance with their resilience, coir nets have various functions, from revegetation efforts to landslide prevention. The many functions and uses are very helpful for humans in carrying out activities. Various functions are very interesting to discuss. Therefore, here are the 3 main functions.
1. Revegetation and Slope Revegetation Protection
Revegetation is an effort to replant plants or plants. Usually, revegetation is carried out after the conversion of land that was previously used for activities such as mining into a green growth area.
Slope is also a consideration for the role of coir nets. Where the slopes often have strong winds with high rainfall so that revegetation efforts, it must safe or protect.
Specifically, the function is expressed in the process of applying revegetation of seeds to grass formation. Moreover, it can also be used in revegetation of tube stock before germination.
Additionally, they are suitable for protecting slope revegetation. Because the fiber contained can protect moisture and maintain plant quality.
Its application is quite easy by placing a net over the revegetated plants in order to avoid the conditions mentioned above. This protection helps and accelerates germination to follow the ideal time for growth.
2. Preventing Landslides
The second function of coir nets is in the prevention of landslides. Generally, landslides occur because there is soil movement, especially on slopes that have a surface slope.
The slope of the surface can directly affect the surface runoff velocity. Furthermore, it can potentially erode the soil and increase the destructive power of water. This then causes erosion.
Generally the flow and the number of soil grains are 1:16. The flow velocity determines the number of stuck soil particles.
Thus, if the flow velocity is doubled, the number of trapped soil particles will be 32 times. If this slope double of length, then the erosion that occurs can increase up to 1.5 times.
Wind and rainfall are also causes of increased flow velocity. The need for application design of coir nets is very important in preventing particle drift.
Its application is emphasized by limiting the movement of the soil so that it is not easily carried away by the flow. Its texture is very relevant to its stable resistance in limiting the movement of soil grains. The real function can be seen through revegetation and prevention of landslides due to erosion. The real role of coir nets is to be an option to be a solution and prevention of a problem.
