84 Lumber supplies geotextiles, filter sock, erosion control blankets, and erosion control wattles made from both synthetic and natural (i.e., straw wattles) materials. A variety of sizes and thicknesses are ready for purchase, and 84 Lumber will also fulfill most custom-sized needs.
Fibers are manufactured into a flexible, porous fabric by standard weaving machinery, knitted or matted together by heat sealing or needle punching to produce a non-woven geotextile fabric. The filter fabrics are porous to water flow across their manufactured plane, but their mechanical and hydraulic properties vary widely.
Palletized Compost Filter Sock is a tough, jersey-mesh tube filled with all-natural wood product used to prevent jobsite erosion. Compost Filter Sock (CFS) is typically laid on level ground around the perimeter of a jobsite to stop sediment and other pollutants from leaving the site. Filter socks are simple to install, easy to maintain, and environmentally friendly.
We carry various sizes of Compost Filter Socks (CFS).
Erosion control blankets are available in a number of sizes and materials, including coconut, straw, excelsior, and permanent. Erosion control blankets prevent soil loss by helping vegetation develop a root structure, thus encouraging growth for natural erosion protection.
Wattles are designed to stop sediment and other debris from entering retention ponds, lakes, and other water bodies. Unlike “blown wattles,” 84 Lumber is proud to supply U.S. Erosion Wattles. Our U.S. Erosion Wattles are made with a Special Augured Process that gives them increased density and superior performance. Natural U.S. Erosion Wattles are available in 100% certified weed-free wheat straw, excelsior wood fiber, and coconut. Geotextiles are also an option.
