Erosiontek filled filter sock is a mesh tube filled with natural shredded and chipped wood products, used to prevent jobsite erosion. The sock is typically laid on level ground around the perimeter of a jobsite, which stops sediment and other pollutants from leaving the site and polluting waterways, leaving a very small environmental footprint. It stops pollutants in two ways: by allowing water to temporarily pond outside the sock and by cleansing the water as it passes through the sock. The sediment either settles or is removed before the water leaves the sock.
The sock is often laid on top of the ground along down-slope areas and side-slope areas as required. The sock is either lapped or butted at the ends to create a continuous line of defense. Staking the sock is usually not required. The first water to contact the sock is absorbed, “staking” the sock in place by its weight alone. In greater sloped areas the sock may be secured in place by stakes or other supports.
Palletized sock is approved and well-embraced throughout erosion control industry. More than six million linear feet of compost filter sock has been produced by Erosiontek to date.
Our sock pallets are uniformly and tightly packed for quick and easy transportation and installation. We offer two palletized products: continuous and pre-cut.
Erosiontek Socks are a filter fabric sock typically filled with wood chips or compost, installed for far less than many other erosion control measures.
Erosiontek Socks allow water to flow through at a controlled rate while trapping sediment. This is accomplished by a filter fabric filled with organic material. The design of the sock provides intimate contact with the ground preventing water from flowing underneath.
Filled socks may be used as an alternative to silt fence in many areas and installed without the need for expensive equipment.
The socks are filled with 100% recycled material. This filler is inert, free of seed, low in moisture content and incredibly environmentally friendly.
The sock is an effective erosion control device with a lower profile making your project easier to access and more aesthetically pleasing.
Many contractors are getting multiple uses out of the product. Smaller diameters can be moved from one job site to another if treated properly.
Any quantity of filled Sock is palletized and ready to ship to your projects location.
