Curlex Sediment Logs use excelsior fibers to reduce hydraulic energy & filter sediment-laden run-off. Tired of straw and hay bale checks being blown out and the fibers washed downstream to clog the nearest outlet? Fed up with spending all of your time and effort installing silt fence only to see it be knocked down when it rains or a good wind comes along? How about when you have to go back and pick up the loose fibers and/or remove those worn out silt fences and take them to the landfill? Next time, consider trying our Bio-engineered Sediment Logs. Water filters through (not underneath) the diameter of the porous, interlocked fiber log matrix. As it does, velocity is naturally reduced and sediment is collected on the upstream side of the excelsior fiber log. Install Sediment Logs over bare soil and/or biodegradable & permanent erosion control blankets or on steep slopes as a wattle.

Sediment Logs are versatile excelsior logs comprised of an outside containment fabric and filled with unique Curlex fibers. Curlex fibers are made of Great Lakes Aspen excelsior fibers. The fibers are curled with soft interlocking barbs and 80% will be six inches in length or longer. The outside, open weave containment fabric can be degradable or non-degradable depending on project requirements. Sediment Logs are porous, allowing water to pass through the excelsior matrix, progressively slowing velocity and filtering sediment as it passes through the log diameter. Sediment Logs are extremely flexible and contour to the terrain to maintain intimate contact with the subgrade. Additionally, they come with six other benefits; lightweight, no trenching, no weed seeds, no disposal hassles, are re-usable and hold their shape.
