Product Detail

Overview

CoirLogs provide erosion and wave control structures in riparian zones, and sediment capture in drainage lines and swales.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CoirLogs are made from 100% biodegradable materials.  CoirLogs can be used to stabilise riparian zones while vegetation is established.  They can also be laid around drains, grates, and on steep slopes to reduce water velocity, reduce erosion, and collect silt.

Coir is the fibre obtained from the husks of coconuts, is biodegradable, and is a by-product of the coconut growing industry.  CoirLogs are an energy efficient and low-toxic alternative to other erosion prevention, which involves the use of plastics, or the erection of stone retaining walls.
