Installation Summary: Soil along Curb

  • Using the included pins, puncture the foam core through the opening at one end of the piece or straight through the filter fabric in multiple areas
  • Dig a 3in deep x 6in wide trench inside the work area (upstream)
  • Place the tail in the trench with the core outside the trench on the downstream side (away from the work area)
  • If there is sufficient cutback (greater than 5inches) then do not dig a trench or fold the tail section
  • Connect sections of DuraWattle by inserting the closed end of one section into the opened end of another
  • Pin the tail with provided nails every four (4) feet and over any overlapping sections
  • Mark Pin locations above the soil level with spray paint
  • Backfill over the tail to secure it to the surface
  • If DuraWattle is being used as a linear barrier and not installed around the perimeter of the site, then J-hook one section of DuraWattle at each end of the run
  • Soil Removal:
    • Using the painted guide, pop out pins with a shovel
    • Pull the wattle out of the soil

Installation Summary: Hard Surface

  • Install surface should be clear of debris and flat as possible to maximize contact with the surface
  • Place the tail section inside the work area with the core downstream
  • Connect sections of DuraWattle by inserting the closed end of one section into the opened end of another
  • Fold the tail section over itself and a wood plank or a predrilled 2in metal strip is laid over the tail.
    • Screws should be spaced 4 feet apart along the length of the strip or wood plank
  • Use a rotary hammer and masonry (asphalt) bit to predrill the hard surface.
  • Use an impact driver to drive the 2 ¾” depth concrete screw anchors (Tapcon screws) and secure the steel strips/wood planks.
  • If DuraWattle is being used as a linear barrier and not installed around the perimeter of the site, then J-hook one section of DuraWattle at each end of the run
  • Using the included pins, puncture the foam core straight through the filter fabric in multiple areas
  • Hard surface removal:
    • Backout concrete anchor screws
    • Remove steel strip/wood planks
