Coir Log Lengths
Hello. I have some questions about coir log lengths. I need to know the standard length for these logs and if there's any flexibility. I am working on a project that requires an extended amount of materials. How would someone have longer lengths for these products? Would a wattle be more appropriate?
The Coir Log is an extremely flexible product that has been used in a wide range of applications for shore and bank stabilization. The standard length for a coir log would be 10 feet or 3.05 meters. This length is designed to provide the required support, while still remaining manageable in your erosion control area.
It is typically recommended that rather than increase the length of an individual coir log, several of these logs should be joined together to form your desired length. This helps to keep the logs manageable and easier to set up. Individual logs can be joined together easily using a twine material.

Coir Log Dimensions
Our standard coir logs feature the dimensions of either 12, 16 or 20 inches in diameter and 10 feet in length. These standard dimensions help to create a reliable setup for erosion control in your area. A full list of features includes:
- Diameters: 12", 16" or 20"
- Length: 10'
- Density: 7 lbs/cu.ft or 9 lbs/cu.ft.
- Outer Net: Bristle Coir Twine, 2" x 2"
- Inner Core Material: Mattress Coir
As mentioned previous, several logs are often joined together to form required coir log lengths along long slopes or banks.
When compared to a coir log, the coir wattle features a slightly lighter packed interior that helps to allow water to easily pass through the material. A coir log would typically feature a much firmer exterior that would be able to withstand weight without losing a significant portion of its shape. A wattle, on the other hand, would be slightly less firm and would change shape under weight.
