Erosion & Sediment Control
Erosion & Sediment Control
Erosion and sediment control respond to unique needs in construction projects. Erosion control addresses a specific design challenge and impacts the long-term performance of the infrastructure, while sediment control aims to mitigate environmental impacts during execution of construction projects.
Erosion control is essential when planning construction projects where earthen structures are at risk of threat from water action such as run-off or flow causing the soil to wear away. If not controlled with proper materials this leads to weakening and eventual structural failure.
Erosion control is an important consideration for any project that includes:
- Soil slopes
- Earth berms
- Drainage channels/ditches
Titan offers both hard and soft armor erosion control products catering to a range of erosion protection needs and vegetative growth preferences.
Concrete Canvas®, known as ‘Concrete on a Roll’, is a Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) hard armourng soluion designed as an eco-freindly alternative to standard poured concrete.
CCX™ ‘Irrigation on a Roll’ is the latest Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) innovation designed as a water conveyence solution for bulk water infastructure, primarily irrigation channels.
Cable Concrete® is a vegetative articulated concrete block system that provides maximum protection while allowing you to economically meet the requirements of your project from severe to minor erosion protection needs.
Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) are a vegetative solutions designed for critical slope and channel applications requiring permanent erosion control and turf reinforcement.
Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs) are vegetative solutions made of various degradable fibers such as straw and coconut. They are used to protect soil structures from damage caused by the elements .
Sediment control is an environmental requirement for construction projects adjacent to or near waterways. This involves controlling the build-up of silt, sediment and debris created from general construction work. Silt fence and turbidity curtains are the primary products that provide sediment control functions. While silt fence is used as a barrier around the perimeter of construction areas, turbidity curtain is used in the water as a shield.
