Worried about the potential headaches of plastic nettings? Animal entrapment, netting tangled in mowers, and tripping hazards can all be concerns. That’s where Curlex® NetFree® comes in. Curlex NetFree eliminates the need for netting by using biodegradable threads to stitch together Curlex fibers, forming a continuous matrix.

Slopes:Curlex NetFree blankets shall be installed vertically on the slope. If more than one width is required, a minimum two to four inch overlap should be used. Secure the outer most stitch of each adjoining blanket with a common row of staples. Curlex NetFree blankets shall be trenched at the head of the slope if the blanket cannot be extended three feet over the slope crest, or if overland flow is anticipated from upslope areas.Channels:Curlex NetFree blankets shall be centered to offset a seam in the middle of the waterway. They shall be installed in the same direction as the water flow. Curlex NetFree blankets shall not be installed perpendicular to the direction of flow. The adjoining blankets shall be installed away from the center of channel and overlapped. Curlex NetFree installation shall continue up the side slopes and three feet over the crest to the flat of the final grade. Flanks exposed to runoff, or sheet flow, must be protected by a check slot. Curlex NetFree shall be trenched at the start of the channel and anchored using a staggered staple pattern at end of roll overlaps and end of roll terminations.
