Slope Protection

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

Filtrexx® filter soxx are used for slope interruption and slope length reduction on batters and hill slopes prior to final stabilisation during construction and mining sites.

Filter soxx used for slope interruption slow down runoff velocity and reduce soil erosion by dissipating the energy of overland sheet runoff flow, reducing its erosive potential while trapping moving sediment and soluble pollutants reducing the potential for rill erosion.


Filter soxx used for slope interruption

  • Installed horizontally across the contour of hill slopes perpendicular to sheet flow to stop erosion.
  • Most effective when runoff is in the form of sheet flow and on long slopes prone to rill erosion.
  • Provides sediment control and filtration of soluble pollutants from runoff.
  • Can be direct seeded to allow vegetation establishment to provide permanent control of runoff velocity.

Slope Interruption Soxx Installation

  • Slope interruption shall be installed horizontally along the contour of slopes and perpendicular to sheet runoff flow.
  • Stakes should be installed on the low side of the soxx at 3 metre intervals.
  • Stakes should be 50mm x 50mm x 600mm softwood and should be located as follows:
    • sand and loam soils = 300mm deep
    • clay soils = 200mm deep
  • If the sediment control soxx is to be left as a permanent filter or part of the natural landscape, the soxx may be seeded at the time of installation for the establishment of permanent vegetation.

Inspection and Maintenance

  1. Routine inspection should be conducted within 24 hours of a runoff event or as designated by the regulatory authority.
  2. Slope interruption soxx should be regularly inspected to make sure that they maintain their shape and that they are producing adequate hydraulic flow through.
  3. If ponding becomes excessive, additional sediment control may be required to reduce effective slope length, or sediment removal may be necessary.
