Construction Site Coir Logs
I am looking for construction site coir logs that I can place at both entrances to my construction site. I would need something that is considerably high in strength and can be used to successfully control erosion. Do you have anything suitable for this type of applications? How long will one of your coir logs last? What can I expect in terms of strength?
Thank you for contacting us! Coir Logs are an excellent choice for sediment or erosion control on construction sites. These erosion control logs have often been placed around construction site entrances, around storm drains, or in various other locations requiring extra sediment support. Their densely packed interiors make them perfect for high strength control in your location.
Coir Log Information
In terms of duration, coir logs are designed to last anywhere from two to five years. Times may vary depending on your application, the flow of water in your area, and various other factors. In general though, the coir logs will work to slowly biodegrade into the surrounding soil.
This can be especially useful on construction sites, as there is no need to waste time removing the logs. These logs will be biodegradable and will naturally remove themselves.
Construction site coir logs are offered in the following diameters:
- 12 inches
- 16 inches
- 20 inches
Often, the size coir log is written into your site specifications during the planning of job. If not, diameters can be chosen based on other factors including water flow and applications.
The larger the diameter of your log, the higher the amount of strength it will offer. Twenty inch (20") diameter logs are often used in large streams with a heavy flow, while twelve inch (12") diameter logs are used in medium streams with a low flow.
Depending on your exact application, you might also consider the use of a coir wattle. These erosion control wattles are slightly lower in terms of density, but are significantly more equipped to filter out sediment and other particles from water.
