Slope Proection - ProWattle

ProWattle is a high performance, low cost and environmentally sustainable approach to protect slopes from erosion, to protect perimeters in low traffic environments and to protect low flow channels from erosion. Unlike fiber rolls, ProWattle tends to spread rather than concentrate flow. Installation is very fast and ProWattle is quickly and easily reused. Because it packs nearly 10 to 12 times as dense as wattles, it provides dramatic logistical cost savings. ProWattle allows water flow-through, reduces water velocity and provides particle filtering. A better alternative to wattles or fiber rolls. Can be used wherever wattles are specified. Made from recycled post-consumer or post-industrial content (92%). Recyclable as HDPE at the end of life.

ProWattle™ resists rill propagation because it minimizes undercutting and spreads flow, minimizing water velocity. Installation requires less trenching, fewer and smaller stakes. It is easier to carry and spread out on a slope and is safer for installers.
ERTEC ProWattle™ is supplied in 7 foot segments which interconnect. Each segment is anchored with two 6” nails and supported by 1”x1”x12” stakes placed on 5 foot centers.
ProWattle packs 10 to 12 times as dense as wattles or compost socks. More than 3,500 feet can fit in the back of a pick-up. The labor required to stage, transport, move and install ProWattle is significantly reduced as compared to fiber rolls (wattles) or compost socks.
ProWattle allows flow and is particularly good at slope interruption. It spreads flow over long distances, reducing water velocity and erosive energy before it passes thru and heads down-slope
