General Information

GeoLog coconut fiber logs are comprised of 100% biodegradable coir fiber tightly bound by a coir yarn netting which maintains its density & shields the structure against mechanical & hydraulic stresses.

Applications 

GeoLogs are deal for riverbank scour protection, silt entrapment, wave dissipation, runoff & stream diversion, spill containment as well as aquatic/wetland plant protection & buttressing on revegetation projects.

Features and Benefits 

  • Strength. GeoLogs are durable & remain structurally sound throughout the natural life of the system. GeoLogs withstand wave energies which often require ‘hard armour’ solutions.
  • Filtration. Rather than providing an impermeable barrier, GeoLogs allow water transmission whilst trapping sediment, reducing turbidity in the main water body.
  • Environmental. GeoLogs are made from natural fibres which degrade over time whilst encouraging natural revegetation for long term security & protection. GeoLogs systems do not require bulk earthworks or invasive site preparation prior to or during installation.
  • Construction. GeoLogs are extremely easy & quick to install. Timber stakes driven adjacent to the units secure them in place. Feel free to consult our staff for advice on installation for each individual project.
  • Cost effective. GeoLogs are significantly less expensive than retaining walls or rip rap protection. GeoLog installation does not require specialist labour or equipment & can be installed by a small inexperienced crew.

Other erosion & sedimentation control materials are available from Global Synthetics. These include silt control fences, biodegradable & synthetic erosion control blankets, rock gabion & mattress systems, geotextile filter fabrics & silt control socks for use around storm water drains.
