Our socks are ideal for diverting water, protecting kerbs channels and drains, aiding site run off and meeting legislative site targets.

Also available 50mtr continuous silt socks: simply cut to size and tie the ends.

PRO TIP:  Washed gravel is more effective, and if you can get rock delivered to site and they can be filled safely it can be handy. Use silt socks in conjunction with other sediment control products such as silt fence, coir logs, erosion control blankets and cloths to create a treatment train and an effective sediment and erosion control plan.
