Erosion Control Wattles

erosion control wattlesErosion Control Wattles are used around construction sites, storm drains and low flow channels to filter and control stormwater runoff. Often implemented as a pollution control device, these wattles are made from all natural fibers such as coconut coir or straw. These materials are designed to filter out pollutants and then naturally biodegrade over time. This eliminates environmental concerns and removes the need for cleanup or disposal.

Wattles are made from a range of different diameters to accommodate different slopes, requirements or water flows. For long erosion control areas, multiple wattles can be joined together until the required length is formed.

In addition to the coir wattle shown here, we also offer several additional wattle products including straw wattles and wood fiber wattles.

Looking for something stronger? In addition to the coir wattle, we also offer Coir Logs. These erosion control logs will have an extremely similar exterior, but will be much more densely packed. This creates a strong barrier along banks, shorelines and hills.
