Futerra F4 Netless, Profile Products LLC, Buffalo Grove, Ill.
Erosion control blankets control erosion and enhance seed germination for slopes, walkways and athletic fields. However, their netting and threads pose environmental and safety hazards by ensnaring maintenance equipment and entrapping wildlife.
Until now. Profile Products’ Futerra F4 Netless Revegetation and Erosion Control Blankets have eliminated nets and threads posing these hazards. F4 Netless weighs 30 percent less than alternative ECBs and has the highest germination rate. With 98 percent erosion control effectiveness, F4 Netless assists with Phase II compliance by bonding to soil surfaces, preventing washouts and seed migration for up to one year, and is easy to install.
Marc Theisen and Kevin Spittle recognized the need for a netless erosion control blanket that eliminates the negative environmental, aesthetic and maintenance impacts of nets and threads that can entangle plants and animals or snare maintenance equipment.
Customers like the fact that they no longer have to pick up the blanket to mow because of the nets. They also like that these lighter, F4 Netless blankets are easier to install. In addition, because of the high environmental standards that exist today, our customers like that Futerra F4 Netless blankets are the right things to use for the environment.
