DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX Erosion Control are both designed with a double layer of knitted polyethylene mesh, that is filled by dredging shallow sediment into the containment unit.
Upon installation, SOX creates a new, fully integrated immediately solid and secure living shoreline. Both DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX are the ideal method when a water body, such as a lake, is part of the project. Unlike other erosion restoration options that are on the market, DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX are quick to install and have little to no impact on surrounding property.
DredgeSOX® is a patented erosion control system. It is designed with a double layer of knitted polyethylene mesh, utilizing rip stop technology. It also has a built-in structural channel, which enables the entire installation to be anchored to the stable embankment.
Once DredgeSOX is anchored to the eroded embankment, it is filled by dredging shallow sediment into the modular open containment system. Upon installation, the system stops erosion dead and creates an immediate, fully integrated secure living shoreline that supports vegetation.
DredgeSOX® is our preferred method when a water body is part of the project. Unlike other erosion restoration options on the market, DredgeSOX® is quick to install and has little to no impact on surrounding property.
Step by step guide for deploying DredgeSOX
Hammer stakes into the ground (without burying rope holes).
Unroll material to the designated area, most of which will be lying in the water.
Tie the SOX material to the stakes every 3 feet.
DredgeSOX is then folded in half and both the top and bottom of the anchoring system are tied back to an additional row of upper stakes in the ground staggered and offset between the lower row of stakes.
The ends are sewn up and are ready for fill material.
Like DredgeSOX®, ShoreSOX® is a patented erosion control system designed with a double layer of knitted polyethylene mesh with rip stop technology and a built-in structural channel designed to attach to a secure embankment.
Unlike DredgeSOX, ShoreSOX is a modular open containment system that is typically only anchored at the toe. It is left open to be filled with a locally sourced organic media, such as topsoil or blow-in mulch that ultimately needs to be graded before the top portion of the mesh is wrapped.
Upon installation, the system halts soil erosion and re-stabilizes shorelines and hillsides that support vegetation.
The short-term and long-term impacts include an immediately stable shoreline, which adds aesthetic value to all properties, an improved and enhanced ecosystem, and mitigated safety risks for residents, workers, and staff.
ShoreSOX is a great solution for new construction, berms and hillsides.
EvoGuard Pro is a multi-functional protective project barrier that retains silt & sediments, slows water encroachment, and serves as a containment barrier for silt 7 sediment, mudslides & debris flow, soil erosion, windblown sand, snow drifts, and other land encroachment threats.
Available in 1-, 2-, 3-foot heights
The EvoGuard Extreme Weather Barrier is a trenchless solution that establishes direct contact with the ground and contains solids like soil, mud, and sediment. Accumulated solids enhance the barrier’s strength and effectiveness. EvoGuard shields against surface water, moderating its impact and distributing it evenly at a less destructive rate. By containing solids and neutralizing wind and water, affected slopes are given the opportunity to revegetate and restabilize, delivering both instant protection and a long-term erosion solution for your land.
The EvoGuard Extreme Weather Barrier system has the following advantages:
- High Static Bursting Strength: EvoGuard can withstand over 22,000 lbs/sf of static bursting strength, making it highly durable and reliable.
- Fire-Resistant and UV Protected: The technical mesh used in EvoGuard is rated fire-retardant by the American Society for Testing and Materials and is manufactured with UV protection, ensuring longevity and performance.
- Rip-Stop Technology: The system is developed with rip-stop technology, allowing for penetration without unraveling. This means that it can endure the impact of an isolated event without weakening or damaging any of the remaining panels.
- Structural Integrity: EvoGuard is constructed with post sleeves that fully integrate the stakes, maximizing its structural integrity and effectiveness.
