EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL LOGS
COCONUT COIR FIBER
Our erosion control coir logs offer a natural and sustainable solution for stabilizing soil in areas prone to erosion, such as river banks, slopes, steams, hillsides, and more. Made from natural fibers, coir logs provide exceptional strength and reinforcement to prevent soil erosion effectively. The unique construction consists of densely packed mattress coir fibers encased within a tubular coir twine netting. In addition, coir logs are entirely biodegradable, ensuring their safety for the surrounding environment.
Coconut coir logs are often used in various applications such as construction sites, restoration areas, environmental preservation on hillsides, and erosion control on shorelines. They possess sufficient strength to withstand harsh weather conditions, including heavy rainfall. When securely anchored to hillsides, they play a crucial role in preventing soil slippage by retaining water until sediment settles. Coir Logs also promote the growth of vegetation while preventing the accumulation of rocks, plant debris, and tree remnants, which can disrupt the natural flow of water.
|Provide structural support, prevent soil loss, and promote vegetation
|Protect soil, prevent coastal erosion, and support vegetation
|Support plants, help create habitat niches, and prevent soil erosion
|Help filter and retain sediments, improving water quality in channels, swales, or ponds
|Stabilize the terrain, reducing the risk of landslides and soil displacement
Specifications: Coir logs are available in 12″, 16” and 20” diameters and are 10’ or 20’ long. Density ranges from 5 lbs./cu.ft., 7 lbs./cu.ft. or 9 lbs./cu.ft. Since the success of a project depends upon selection of the appropriate material, consider flow velocity, wave height, stream energy, and soil type.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are coir logs?
Coir Logs are erosion control products made from natural coconut fiber (coir) tightly bound together. They are typically used to stabilize slopes, control sediment, and promote vegetation growth in environmentally sensitive areas.
How do coir logs work?
Coir Logs work by providing immediate erosion control and stabilizing the soil. The logs absorb and retain water, reducing the speed of runoff and allowing sediment to settle. Over time, the logs biodegrade and provide organic matter to promote vegetation growth.
Where are coir logs used?
Coir Logs are commonly used in various applications, such as riverbanks, shorelines, wetlands, construction sites, highways, and other areas prone to erosion. They are particularly useful in areas where traditional erosion control methods are not feasible or environmentally friendly.
What are the advantages of using coir logs?
Coir Logs offer several advantages, including their biodegradability, high water absorption capacity, and ability to promote vegetation growth. They are eco-friendly, easy to install, and provide natural erosion control without causing harm to the surrounding environment.
How long do coir logs last?
The lifespan of Coir Logs varies depending on factors such as water conditions, exposure to sunlight, and vegetation establishment. Typically, they can last anywhere from 2 to 5 years. Over time, the logs biodegrade and integrate into the surrounding ecosystem.
How are coir logs installed?
Coir Logs are typically installed by unrolling them along the desired contour or slope. They are secured in place using stakes or biodegradable netting. Multiple logs can be connected end-to-end or stacked to create longer or higher structures.
