Filtrexx™ Slope Interruption Soxx™

Slope INteruption Soxx from Filtrexx CanadaSlope Interruption Soxx are employed on sites which require a reduction in run length to reduce the potential for erosion. These Soxx reduce runoff velocity, dissipating the energy of overland sheet flow. They trap sediment and soluble pollutants by filtering the runoff waters through the Soxx matrix and allow the water to temporarily pond and deposit out suspended solids. Slope Interruption Soxx are installed horizontally across the contours of slopes and perpendicular to sheet flow. Slope Interruption Soxx are effective on steep grades as great as 1:1.

Advantages

  • Greater trapping and removal of sediment and soluble pollutants than silt fence.
  • No trenching is required.
  • Year-round installation is possible.
  • Biologically able to bind, adsorb and degrade phosphorus, metals, pertroleum hydrocarbons and organic pollutants.
  • Can be placed in areas of high sheet flow and low concentrated flow unlike FilterBerms.
  • Can be seeded for greater stability and longevity.
  • Temporary or permanent installations.
  • Does not impede the movement of wildlife
  • Available in 8”, 12” and 18” diameters and continuous lengths to suit.
