How did PowerBlock serve the function of a detention pond, drainage inlet and a water quality unit on this project?...
WHY THESE PRODUCTS?
Whether channelized flow or sheet flow traversing a slope, flow dissipation products help prevent/minimize erosion by dissipating the energy from those flows. They also provide filtration of silts and sediments. The selection of these erosion control tools below includes units that are biodegradable, others that are reusable, other that are made from post-consumer recycled materials and still others that are saturated with flocculant to maximize sediment removal. There’s one here to fit every need.
FEATURED NEW PRODUCT
This unique design provides a quick-to-action solution for slowing, filtering and containing sediment in runoff on job sites. The four clips hold the springs closed during transportation and storage, allowing the Expand-a-Wattle to be sprung to it’s full size when needed or connected to form various lengths. The unit is extremely quick and easy to install as once it is sprung open, it can be set on the ground and secured with a 4” toe-in trench and 6” sod staples.
- Construction site BMP
- As check dams in channels / ditches
- Perimeter control
- Slope or channel erosion control
- Drain / inlet protection
- Stream/bank stabilization
- Lightweight, compact silt control device – easily stored and transported
- Heavy-duty steel springs instantly expand when needed
- 100% polyester fabric (green mesh) reduces runoff flow velocity and retains silt
- Durable polypropylene (black skirt) helps hold the unit in place with dirt, rocks or stakes
- Quick and easy installation – no post digging or trenching required
- Ability to create custom lengths – units can be clipped together to create longer lengths as needed
THE EXPAND-A-WATTLE LITERALLY SPRINGS INTO ACTION FOR MOST WATTLE, CHECK DAM OR BERM APPLICATIONS
OTHER FLOW CONTROL PRODUCTS
Straw Wattles are a cost effective, storm water treatment product designed to filter sediment-laden runoff while reducing hydraulic energy. These wattles contain chopped straw encased in a heavy duty, knitted cylindrical web, both of which are completely biodegradable.
Excelsior Wattles are a cost effective, storm water treatment product designed to filter sediment-laden runoff while reducing hydraulic energy. These wattles contain expanded wood fibers encased in a heavy duty, knitted cylindrical web, both of which are biodegradable, although Excelsior Wattles have a longer lifespan that straw wattles.
Coconut (Coir) Logs
Coir logs are made from coconut fibers. Woven fibers create a net-like sleeve encasing additional fiber infill. Also biodegradable, Coir Logs have a longer lifespan than Excelsior wattles. Typically they provide the longest lifespan of any biodegradable wattle.
Triangular Silt Dike
The Triangular Silt Dike is a re-usable, multipurpose alternative to rock check dams. Made of lightweight and durable materials, Triangular Silt Dikes weigh just 7 to 9 lbs. per seven foot section. The protective apron on both sides of the dike minimize erosion and failure. The units install in minutes with U-shaped wire staples and can be conformed to curves and rough terrain. These units can be cleaned and reused.
An environmentally friendly, low impact erosion and sediment control device, that provides high suspended particle capture and flow control. Erosion Eels have a heavy-duty, high flow rate woven Polypropylene geotextile exterior and washed shredded rubber internal fill. Eels are heavy enough to stay put in high flows, without stakes. Eels can replace silt fence, rock check dams, temporary diversion berms and inlet drain protection. Despite their weight, they are easy to install and relocate, and they’re very reusable.
9.5” Eels are available in 10’ lengths
