Construction Site Coir Logs


Coir Fiber Rolls for Erosion Control

construction site coir logsQuestion: I am looking for coir logs that I can place at both entrances to my construction site and over nearby stormwater drains. I would need something that is considerably high in strength and can be used to successfully control erosion. Do you have anything suitable for this type of application? How long will one of your coir logs last? What can I expect in terms of strength?

Answer: Thank you for contacting Erosion Control Products! Erosion control coir logs are an excellent choice for construction site erosion control. Our logs have often been placed at construction site entrances, around storm drains, or in various other locations on site requiring extra sediment support. Their densely packed coir fiber interiors make them perfect for high strength control on site.

Coir Fiber Log Average Lifespan

coir logs on a riverbankIn terms of duration, coir logs are designed to last anywhere from two to five years. Coir log lifespan may vary depending on the specific application, including the flow of water and general natural exposure. Generally, coir fiber logs will slowly biodegrade into the surrounding soil.

Coir fiber rolls are easy to install and require little maintenance after they're placed. These logs are biodegradable and naturally remove themselves.


Technical Specifications for Erosion Control Logs

Standard Density Coir Logs

These are the industry standard for use in average conditions and at a price point that's budget friendly. 100% Biodegradable, the Standard Density Coir Logs are made of 100% coir encased in a 2"x2" coir netting. Coir Logs promote a natural solution to erosion control and slope stabilization, while creating an environment that supports vegetative growth for long term erosion control as the coir eventually biodegrades.

High Density Coir Logs

High density coir logs are recommended for use on rigorous terrain, areas exposed to high flow or harsh environmental conditions. They are also a reliable erosion control solution for streambanks and lakeshores, as well as for slope stabilization. Manufactured with 100% coir fibers encased in a rhombic coir netting, these high-density coir logs are known for solid performance in the most demanding situations and for the longest duration in the field.

Pre-Drilled Coir Logs

Amazingly convenient, the installation of these coir logs is a snap. They use fewer stakes; simply secure them with stakes through the pre-drilled slots in the logs. The slots can also be used for planting seedlings. The slots are approximately 2 feet apart. Pre-Drilled Coir Logs are available in standard or high-density options and a variety of sizes.

Coir Fiber Log Sizes and Dimensions

Often, the size requirements for coir logs are written into your site specifications during the planning of a job. If not, diameters can be chosen based on other factors including water flow and applications.

Construction site coir logs are 10 feet long and are offered by Erosion Control Products in the following diameters:

  • 12 inches
  • 16 inches
  • 20 inches

Depending on the exact application and purpose, coir wattles could also help a site. Coir wattles are less dense than coir logs, but are significantly more equipped to filter out sediment and other particles from water.
