Silt Sock

 

Silt Sock COST EFFECTIVE
Silt Socks are a filter fabric sock filled with wood chips or compost.


Silt Sock LOW MAINTENANCE
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 intimate contact with the ground preventing water
from flowing underneath.

Silt Sock EASY INSTALL
Filled socks may be used as an alternative to silt fence in
many areas.

Silt Sock GREEN PRODUCT
The socks are filled with 100% wood recycled from new
construction debris. This filler is inert, free of seed, low in
moisture content and incredibly environmentally friendly.

Silt Sock BETTER SITE ACCESS
The sock is an effective erosion control device with a lower
profile making your project easier to access and more
aesthetically pleasing.

Silt Sock REUSABLE
The Silt Sock is an effective perimeter control device.

Silt Sock ECONOMICAL DELIVERY
Silt Socks are delivered on pallets with delivery and install
at your job site by NORtech Energy Solutions personnel.

Silt Sock

Silt Sock DEFINITION:
A silt sock is a tubular-shaped material comprised of a fabric exterior filled with wood chips or compost. The material used in the sock is an environmentally safe material. Available in rolls of 600 – 1000 feet.

The silt sock is typically laid on the top of the ground along the down-slope areas and along side-slope areas as required to prevent or reduce erosion. The silt sock is either lapped or butted at the ends to create a continuous line of defense. Staking the sock is not usually 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

Silt Sock CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Silt SockTHE FOLLOWING SILT SOCK CONDITIONS REQUIRE MAINTENANCE:
Deformation due to drive-over or dragging. Action required:
Re-contour by hand if applicable. If not, see applicable repair methods below.

Sock rolling due to hydraulic force. Action required: Reposition and stake.

Loss of ground contact. Action required: Fill in depressions and back-grout with chips from damaged section. Sediment accumulation of ½ sock height. Action required: Remove by hand or install a second row of sock positioned on top of or up slope of the original sock

THE FOLLOWING SILT SOCK CONDITIONS REQUIRE REPAIR:
Holes, rips or tears of the sock. Action required: Small holes or narrow rips shorter than 12 inches may be stitched closed using plastic zip-ties. Tears longer than 12 inches require the sock be replaced.

Pinch or localized diameter reduction of more than ½ the original diameter. Action required: Install new section of sock upslope of the damaged section.

The Silt Sock is an effective erosion control device. It's success relies on proper installation and maintenance. Greater protection can be accomplished by layering sock in pyramid style.
