A Silt Sock is an erosion control product that prevents soil erosion similar in fashion to a silt fence. Instead of simple fabric, a filter sock is typically filled with wood chips or compost through a pneumatic process that maximizes the amount of material filler within the sock. Rather than traditional silt fences, or a large erosion control blanket, silt socks are less expensive and more versatile
Silt 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 more intimate contact with the ground than a silt fence, preventing water from flowing underneath.
Easy to Install
Filter socks may be used as an alternative to silt fences in many areas. They are flexible, adaptable, and easy to distribute and install.
Silt socks, filter socks, and erosion control wattles are an erosion control product filled with 100% recycled material. This filler is inert, free of seed, low in moisture content and incredibly environmentally friendly.
