    WattleFence™ Specifications

WattleFence is the next innovation in sediment control, combining the best features of wattles (a.k.a. logs, SRFRs) and silt fence. Western Green has developed a tool that creates a unique and powerful value proposition for the distributor and contractor working to contain sediment-laden flow on site. The finished product is unique in the high-volume shipping and storage, biodegradability, and installation. WattleFence provides all these advantages while providing similar sediment reduction and turbidity reduction as wattles and silt fence. This innovation has been awarded multiple patents.

WattleFence is constructed using a fleece of coconut fiber that is placed on a biodegradable, planar, woven fabric. This arrangement is folded, longitudinally, forming a thick, multilayer product that measures approximately 9 inches high. Additionally, a six-inch splash apron is left for securing to the ground. The product is coiled for packaging, and easy shipping. Once deployed on site, the product forms an L-shape with the splash apron secured to the ground and the fleece fence held vertical by stakes. This unique system does not require trenching and provides an upstream apron.
