FILTREXX CHECK DAM
Effectively slow and interrupt stormwater runoff with our proprietary Soxx™ technology.
Filtrexx® SiltSoxx™ is the premier Soxx™ for check dam applications. They are generally used in ditches, channels and swales to protect specific areas by slowing concentrated stormwater flow velocity, reducing bed erosion and filtering sediment, pollutants and other particles. Check dams are highly effective at reducing flow velocities, simple to construct and require very low maintenance. A superior alternative to silt fence and other rock or concrete dam systems, our SiltSoxx can be customized with different mesh, media and tensile strength for each specific project. If the application requires pollutant removal features, our EnviroSoxx® product portfolio provides a diverse set of additives that can be incorporated to the Soxx in any check dam configuration.
