Looking for an environmentally friendly alternative for managing stream flow velocity, shaping channels and/or stabilising shorelines? Coir fibre logs are the natural solution. Find out why this material is ideal for your project.
Coir fibre logs slowing surface water velocity
Instead of using hay bales or expensive ripraps and cement stabilisation techniques, coir fibre offers a cheaper and more environmentally conscious option. A natural planting medium for vegetation, the material is made from 100 percent coir (coconut) fibre. The logs are completely biodegradable and can last for up to five years.
Coir fibre logs are constructed from a large hessian roll of 100 percent biodegradable coir, made from organic coconut fibre. The coil can be fixed to swale for sediment retention, and around wetlands and stream banks for wave mitigation. They can also be stacked in order to form a strong and durable barrier. This can be used in areas with strong wave movements and consistent tidal hanges.
Surface water being slowed by coir fibre logs
Easy to install, the logs will naturally blend into the environment over time, providing protection until natural vegetation is established.
Coir fibre logs can be used in a wide range of applications, including:
- River banks
- Swale drains
- Sand dunes
- Steep batters
- Building sites
- Wetland erosion
- Garden edging
All Stake Supply offer coir fibre logs in four different sizes:
- 3m long x 300mm diameter, 25kg
- 3m long x 300mm square, 33kg
- 3m long x 200mm diameter, 16kg
- 3m long x 150mm diameter, 12kg
