expanding toolbox of compost erosion control products includes the use
of FilterMedia and GrowingMedia that is custom installed within mesh FilterSoxx.
The FilterSoxx allows for the loose organic products to be contained and
therefore provide many environmental benefits. Our products are used as
silt fence alternatives, straw bale replacements or as a substitute for
other BMPs commonly used on construction sites.
Filtrexx FilterSoxx are commonly referred to as compost socks or mulch
socks, however both terms can be misleading. Neither "traditional"
garden compost nor mulch provide the same organic filtering benefits that
Filtrexx requires of its specified FilterMedia.
Filtrexx FilterSoxx technologies utilize nature’s own systems in order
to control erosion and improve stormwater quality. Because the composting
process eliminates contaminants such as weed seed and pathogens, Filtrexx
compost erosion control products are far more environmentally friendly
than other synthetic materials (especially when used as a silt fence alternative)
while remaining the most effective tool available.
