Switchsock is a lightweight, sediment and erosion control product which is the perfect solution for short-term sediment control applications. SwitchSock will stay where it is intended because its exceptionally strong, pale yellow netting will not easily rupture. Switchgrass decomposes quickly relative to other tubular sediment control products and is used is used primarily for soil conservation, forage production, game cover, as an ornamental grass, in phytoremediation projects, fiber, electricity, heat production, for biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and more recently as a biomass crop for ethanol and butanol. Applications Include:
Light-Duty Sediment Control
SwitchSock uses high strength netting filled with switchgrass to quickly handle tough sediment situations. During restoration projects, SwitchSock can be cut open and spread similar to straw.
Perfect for light-duty sediment control like stream crossings or around laydown yards and will decompose quicker than other similar sock products. And with its lightweight capabilities, you won’t need an entire crew – you might just need one person!
Short Term Sediment Control
Applications where light-duty sediment control is required such as stream crossings, lay down yard perimeter control and similar applications like equipment and lay down yard entrances.
SwitchSock makes an excellent ditch check. A one-man installation team can put down Road Wattles quickly with nothing more complex than a hammer for stakes.
