Easy to install, hard to beat. Reliable and durable, multiple CFS Installer Netting types ensure the right fit for field installation with blower trucks or track machines.
Straw wattles are a staple of any BMP toolbox. Our line of Filtrexx straw wattle netting allows you to manufacture a variety of high-quality wattles.
The netting you choose matters. The most competitive, advanced, and recognized compost filter sock nettings in the industry are now available for you to manufacture and market.


Confused by tensile strength and want to make sure you have the right strength for your job? Read our new guide and learn why we updated our standard test method:

What is tensile strength?
Tensile strength is the amount of force needed to break a material when stretching it apart.

How is tensile strength measured?
Tensile strength is measured in units of pounds per square inch (cross sectional area). In the case when the material is very thin, like film and fabric, tensile strength is measured in pounds only.

MKB Company now uses the test method ASTM D4595 – Standard Test Method for Tensile Properties of Geotextiles by the Wide-Width Strip Method. This test method is the most accurate for testing loose knit materials used for compost sock mesh. This test method measures both machine direction (MD) and transverse direction (TD). MD measures the strength and resistance of the mesh from breaking when pulled lengthwise. TD measures the strength and resistance of the mesh from breaking when pulled widthwise.

Why is tensile strength important?
Poor tensile strength can lead to compost filter sock mesh rupturing or even completely falling apart when removed from a pallet, moved from one location to another, during the installation process, or even once storm water flow contacts the product. MD affects the filling, palletizing, and installation process of compost filter sock. TD affects the filling process and maintenance after installation of compost filter sock.

MKB Company has engineered a line of mesh products with various tensile strengths to meet specific applications and site conditions. To learn more about tensile strength and our research, read Filtrexx TechLink #3342, Tensile Strength Testing for Filtrexx Mesh Materials.


Netting opening: the netting opening or hole size is the measurement that determines how tight or loose the netting geometry is. Modifying the netting opening size can help achieve specific performance results depending on the final application.

Netting Material: Our netting configurations can be manufactured in different resins (e.g. polypropylene, high density polyethylene, etc.) and natural fibers (e.g. cotton or wood fiber) to serve different performance requirements. If your project requires photodegradable or biodegradable features, our team can collaborate with you to find the most suitable netting material to deliver desired results.
