Biodegradable fastening materials
Products to fasten BESE- gabions, mesh bags and elements.
To make sure the BESE-products are fastened correctly and to not use any non-biodegradable materials with fastening the BESE-products, we offer several fastening options. All options are mainly made of potato starch and are biodegradable (Vincotte OK compost certificate). The rope and cable ties last a short period (maximum 2 moths) and the ankers last up to 6 months. About the biodegradation is it important to mention: as long as the the products stay dry they can last years. But as soon as they become wet they start to degrade.
Our cable ties are not 100% biobased but do contain a minimum of 50 % plant-based biopolymers. The cable ties can be ordered in different dimensions: 150/26mm, 210/34mm, 300/46mm and 365/76mm.
At the moment, the materials are mainly used to fasten the BESE-products together or to the bottem in the set-up stage, in low dynamic conditions. If the location is exposed to waves or currents it is best to use wooden poles or rebar sticks to fasten the BESE-products to the ground. The rope, ankers and cable ties are perfect for low dynamic, ponds, lakes and riverbanks.
