Coir Fiber Log Installation
Typically, coir log installation involves a process of trenching and staking. After the project has been cleared of debris and other obstructions, a small trench can be dug for placement of the coconut coir logs. Each log can then be placed inside the trench and staked. Spacing for the stakes will vary depending on your location and water flows. Typical staking placement is as follows:
|Stream||Flow||Diameter||Anchor Height||Anchor Spacing|
|Large||Heavy||20 in.||4 ft. Min||Every 2 ft.|
|Large||Moderate||16 in.||3 ft. Min||Every 2.5 ft.|
|Medium||Moderate||12 in.||30 in. Min||Every 3 ft.|
|Medium||Low||12 in.||30 in. Min||Every 3.5 ft.|

Erosion Control Wattles are a great product offered by GEI Works for any site dealing with storm water runoff, sediment control or construction work. Typically offered in 6 or 9 inch diameters, these wattles have been used around drains, site perimeters, and construction site entrances.
