The top 4 reasons why any sediment control product fails on a project site are issues with – installation, maintenance, design, and performance. Filtrexx SiltSoxx™ are specifically designed to remove each of these issues, thereby minimizing risk to you and your company on any project site.
1. Filtrexx SiltSoxx are one of the only products on the market that do not require trenching, which is both labor intensive and a land disturbing activity. Simply prepare the ground, lay down the SiltSoxx, and stake. It is the industry leader in installation simplicity.
2. Filtrexx SiltSoxx combines one of the highest stormwater flow through rates and heaviest products in the industry, creating a product that rarely moves, floats, overtops, or undercuts – leading to industry leading minimum maintenance requirements.
3. Filtrexx SiltSoxx are one of the only products available that come with university researched and development site specific design and engineering criteria based on virtually any site and regional design storm/rainfall condition. Without this information a product is impossible to design correctly, leading to a much higher risk of major failure from under design or paying too much due to over design.
4. Filtrexx SiltSoxx are the only sediment control product whose performance has been researched by multiple major U.S. universities, and a U.S. federal agency, with results published in leading U.S. environmental scientific peer reviewed publications.
In addition, Filtrexx SiltSoxx are one of the only products that comply with state and federal agency specifications nationwide, and has been verified by a third party to significantly reduce environmental impacts both on and off the project site. Do you care about managing your risk?
