Filtrexx Sediment Control Log

Filtrexx logs as silt fence replacement

Filtrexx logs can be used as silt fence replacements where silt fence is not applicable, like on this pavement

Filtrexx Sediment control is a three-dimensional tubular sediment control and storm water filtration device typically used as a Silt Fence Replacement (perimeter control device) for sediment and soluble pollutants (such as phosphorus and petroleum hydrocarbons), on and around construction activities. Filtrexx Sediment control traps sediment and soluble pollutants by filtering runoff water as it passes through the organic structure, and by allowing water to temporarily pond behind the device, allowing deposition of suspended solids. Sediment control is also used to reduce runoff flow velocities on sloped surfaces.

  • 50% more design capacity and flow through than silt fence
  • NO Trenching, NO Soil
  • Disturbance
  • Easy removal and little disposal costs
  • 8x less maintenance than silt
  • Fence (USEPA)
  • Exceeds federal standards
  • Reduced ecological footprint:
  • Recycled, biobased, locally manufactured, indigenous materials, carbon neutral.
  • Installed by professionals

Filtrexx Inlet Protection

Filtrexx-Inlet-Protection

These logs filter the water before it leaves the site by forcing sedimentation on the outside of the Filtrexx, so clean runoff enters the inlet

Filtrexx Inlet protection is a three-dimensional tubular sediment control and storm water filtration device designed for storm drain and curb inlet protection. Sediment and soluble pollutants (such as phosphorus and petroleum hydrocarbons) are filtered from runoff water as it passes through the organic structure, and by allowing water to temporarily pond behind the Inlet protection, allowing deposition of suspended solids.

  • Emergency overflow prevents flooding
  • Easy to maintain, replace, and repair
  • Do not need to remove storm grate to install
  • Flocculants available
  • Available on pallets
  • Heavy duty Soxx available for high traffic areas
  • Reduced ecological footprint: recycled, biobased, locally manufactured, indigenous materials, carbon neutral.

Erosion Eels

The Erosion Eel is a highly effective erosion control device used at a construction site to prevent sediment from leaving the job site. The Eel is used in lieu of other conventional BMP items.

The Erosion Eel

  • Is made of a woven polypropylene geotextile
  • Is filled with recycled tires
  • Requires no staking (except in concentrated flow)
  • Is a hardy and sustainable BMP

Metaloxx Metals Removal Log

Filtrexx Metals Removal is a natural ionic adsorbent that is used with Filtrexx stormwater pollution prevention practices, such as Sediment Control, Check Dams, Inlet Protection, Biofiltration and Bioretention Systems.  It is specifically used to reduce metals loads (Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb, Zn) in urban and post construction stormwater runoff.
