Site Supply, Inc. has been providing contractors and engineers with custom solutions to their sediment control needs since 1992, and is ready to help with all of your erosion & sediment control needs. If your job site needs quick delivery of the latest and most advanced products on the market call 1-800-465-0900 to speak with a member of their experienced technical sales team and get the solutions you need.

Silt Fences Ensure the Integrity of the Job Site Perimeter

Silt fences are made with woven geotextile fabric and wood or steel posts. They are the traditional method of silt protection and are typically installed mechanically. Proper installation is important to reduce silt fence failure. Site Supply can be consulted as to the proper installation to avoid any failures.

Silt fences are most commonly used to ensure the integrity of a job site’s perimeter, especially when heavy soil movement is predicted due to the clearing of land for a variety of construction purposes. When soil is loosened it will eventually move, especially if water is present, and this can cause rapid and unexpected erosion of areas that do not yet have permanent erosion control methods installed. This can result in damage to neighboring property as well as unnecessary wear and tear on the area’s storm drain systems.

 

Wattles/Logs Are Great At Stopping Soil Flow on Hillsides

Wattles (or sometimes called logs) are berm-shaped filtration products that act as sediment barriers that slow water and sediment flow. They are also used as barriers to stop sediment and debris from entering storm drains. Wattles (logs) are made from either natural materials (straw, aspen or coir fibers) or recycled rubber. Wattles made from natural material can be left on-site after the project is completed. Straw wattles are most commonly used to stop soil flow on hillsides. Guaranteed weed free, one of the greatest attributes of straw wattles is that they can be bio-degradable, which saves time and money.

Logs made with coir fibers can be also be pre-vegetated to assist in getting a good stand of vegetation on slopes. This is especially beneficial in pond and stream conditions where the normal water elevation tends to have small fluctuations, creating a tuff environment for establishing vegetation.

Triangular Silt Dikes, Erosion Eels, and Filtrexx Logs are Reusable and Easy to Install

Triangular silt dikes, Erosion Eels and Filtrexx Logs provide some of the easiest and most effective sediment control methods, and have the added bonus of being both re-usable and exceptionally easy to install. Due to their flexibility they can be used to stop run off from entering streams, ponds, and other water sources, and are also highly effective on concrete and asphalt for trapping rapidly moving water carrrying silt that would otherwise escape the perimeter of the construction site. These products are typically comprised and/or filled with recycled material, and are re-useable. They really can be taken to the next project with you!

Dandy Products are designed for use with flat grates and mountable curbs to detain sediment-laden storm water

NPDES Phase ll require BMP’s (best management practices) at almost all construction sites. Dandy Products are designed for use with flat grates and mountable curbs to detain sediment-laden storm water. The suspended solids in the stormwater are allowed to settle out of the slowed flow and are captured by Dandy Products prior to entering inlet, ensuring regulatory compliance performance. Dandy Products have proven throughout North America to be the storm inlet devices of choice.

  • Dandy Bag: Use the Dandy Bag with flat grates (including round) and mountable curbs to filter out all the sludgy sediment-laden storm water.
  • Dandy Sack: This incredibly strong open-top bag is specially designed to hang underneath a storm grate to expertly filter the thickest sediment laden storm water.
  • Dandy Curb Bag: The patented Dandy Curb Bag is designed for use on curb and gutter inlets to filter out the most stubborn sediment-laden storm water.
  • Dandy Curb: The Dandy Curb is made especially for curb inlets and median inlets without grates. It is designed to handle the worst that sludge-filled rainwater has to offer. Filtering off sediment laden storm waters.
  • Dandy Pop: The Dandy Pop is designed to filter sediment-laden water and pops up in seconds. It is designed for use with flat field grates and is easily spotted by construction workers and equipment drivers. The Dandy Pop encloses the grate, eliminating infiltration.
