Coir Logs and Coir Wattles

Erosion Control Products for Construction

coir logsQuestion: Can you provide me some coir log specifications and details for GEI Works' other coir fiber products? I am trying to use these on a construction site and I'm not sure whether coir logs or coir wattles would be better.

Answer: Thank You for contacting GEI Works. Our Coir Logs are densely packed, 100% natural erosion control products designed to withstand wave impact and stormwater forces without deformation or loss of material ensuring maximum erosion prevention.

GEI Works' coconut coir logs are made from 100% biodegradable coconut fibers compressed in a tubular coir mesh netting. Coir fibers used in both the netting and dense interior of the coir logs are designed for durability and site soil enrichment. Erosion control fiber rolls will biodegrade over a period of time between 2 and 5 years. This makes coir sediment logs an effective and natural erosion control solution.

Coir Log Specifications:
Coir logs are available in standard lengths of 10 or 20 feet for easy installation and maneuvering of each log. Coir sediment logs are also easily connected with coir twine to meet the needs of longer erosion control projects. GEI Works offers coir logs in diameters of 9, 12, 16, and 20 inches. The best fit for each project depends on its size and scope.

Coir Logs and Coir Wattles

coir wattleDepending on the needs of the project, Coir Wattles may be more appropriate to use as opposed to coir logs. The two coir erosion control products may look similar, but they are designed for different applications. Density is the biggest difference between coir sediment logs and coir wattles. Coir logs are very densely packed, and are meant to provide structural stability. Coir wattles are less dense and are designed for filtration.

Coir logs and coir wattles each can serve their own purpose on a construction site. Often, coir wattles are chosen due to their additional filtering ability. Because they are less tightly packed, coir wattles a better equipped to filter out silt from stormwater runoff.
