Overview

The Filtrexx Channel Soxx™ soft armoring system is designed to stabilize and prevent erosion of channel beds and banks used for storm water conveyance and concentrated flow situations. The Channel Soxx™ technology provides structural protection, erosion control, vegetation growth, and vegetation reinforcement in the same system. The Channel Soxx™ weight and anchoring system can withstand storm runoff velocities and hydraulic shear stresses similar to traditional soft armoring devices (turf reinforcement mats, rip rap, cellular confinement systems). The Vegetated Channel Soxx™ system is specifically designed to reinforce vegetation against intense hydraulic pressure. Once permanent vegetation is established in the Channel Soxx™, the following storm water management parameters are increased:

  • structural stability of the channel and protection system
  • reduction of bed and bank erosion
  • protection from scour erosion
  • control of runoff velocity
  • dissipation of runoff energy
  • sediment, soluble pollutant, and pathogen removal efficiency

Advantages

  • Replaces rip-rap
  • Vegetated FilterSoxx stabilizes soil
