Construction Coir Fiber Logs
Coir Fiber Rolls for Construction Site Erosion Control
Question: I am looking for coir logs that I can place at both entrances to my construction site and over nearby stormwater drains. 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 application? How long will one of your coir logs last? What can I expect in terms of strength?
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works! Coir Logs are an excellent choice for construction site erosion control. Our logs have often been placed at construction site entrances, around storm drains, or in various other locations on site requiring extra sediment support. Their densely packed coir fiber interiors make them perfect for high strength control on site.
Coir Log Information
In terms of duration, coir logs are designed to last anywhere from two to five years. Coir log lifespan may vary depending on the specific application, including the flow of water and general natural exposure. Generally, coir fiber logs will slowly biodegrade into the surrounding soil.
Coir fiber rolls are easy to install and require little maintenance after they're placed. These logs are biodegradable and naturally remove themselves.
Construction site coir logs are 10 or 20 feet long and are offered by GEI Works in the following diameters:
- 9 inches
- 12 inches
- 16 inches
- 20 inches
Often, the size requirements for coir logs are 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.
Depending on the exact application and purpose, coir wattles could also help a site. Erosion Control Wattles are less dense than coir logs, but are significantly more equipped to filter out sediment and other particles from water.
