Benefits of DuraWattle over Silt Fence & Straw Wattle

Cost Effective – 70-90% of DuraWattle is typically reused after final stabilization
  • DuraWattle is long lasting and easily reused over multiple jobs over several years without a change in its overall effectiveness.
    • Jagoe Homes in Kentucky has reused 85% of the DuraWattle he purchased for several residential building projects. See the case study here.
  • Traditional BMPs can be damaged by heavy equipment and often require frequent replacements which increase costs and compliance issues. If you are replacing your temporary sediment control BMPs 2-3 times per job, then DuraWattle can save you money and keep you in compliance.
Ships Compressed – 1800ft of DuraWattle ships compressed on one pallet
  • We compress the DuraWattle to save on shipping costs – which in turn passes savings onto you!
  • DuraWattle can be easily transported across development sites with the 300ft bundles fitting in the back of a pickup truck.
Long lasting – DuraWattle is low maintenance and can last the life of a project
  • DuraWattle is extremely durable; pieces only need to be replaced occasionally.
  • Only minor maintenance is required after rain events. Simply push the built-up sediment back towards the construction area. Read more about maintenance.
Lightweight – Each 12ft section of DuraWattle weighs 5 pounds
  • DuraWattle does not absorb water, so it remains lightweight even after a rain event.
  • Some synthetic sediment control devices must use weight to secure them to the ground. DuraWattle is secured by its “tail section”.
Low Profile – keep street sides of developments looking clean
  • DuraWattle is only 5 inches high and forms a continuous clean looking barrier around your site, improving visual presentation for home sales.
  • Unlike fiber rolls which soak up sediment and eventually become damaged, DuraWattle retains sediment behind the product and off the streets.
  • The low profile also gives it an advantage over silt fence which, when installed improperly, can be blown over by extreme weather or heavy winds.
Drive Over It – DuraWattle is designed to fully rebound when driven over by heavy machinery
  • Stop having to replace silt fence or fiber rolls when sub-contractors run them over.
  • DuraWattle is ideal for driveways on development sites where heavy traffic and materials delivery can be expected.
  • Gain access to your site at more points.
Easy Installation – Faster and more secure than traditional perimeter control BMPs
  • For curb installation, a trench is dug, the tail section is secured with nails included in the shipment, and the soil is backfilled over the tail. See our Installation Guide for more details.
  • DuraWattle remains lightweight and easy to move during installation.
  • DuraWattle pieces interlock to make a continuous barrier.
A Highly Effective Alternative – 96.6% sediment retention and 58% turbidity reduction
