Filtrexx® FilterSoxx™ is a geotextile mesh tube filled with filtering material to control erosion and retain sediment in disturbed areas.
Compost filter socks provide a three dimensional filter that retains sediment and other pollutants (e.g., suspended solids, nutrients, and motor oil) while allowing the cleaned water to flow through. All Denbow’s Filtrexx® products fulfill municipal Erosion & Sediment Control bylaws.
Specifications are available here for your project documents.
Where should I use FilterSoxx™?
Compost filter socks are applicable to construction sites or other disturbed areas where stormwater runoff occurs as sheet flow. FilterSoxx™ can be used in place of a traditional sediment and erosion control tool such as a silt fence or straw bale barrier.
Filter socks are flexible and can be filled in place or pre-filled and moved into position, making them especially versatile. Filter socks used for sediment control are usually 8 inches in diameter, but are also available in12 , 18 and 24 inch diameter.
