Western Excelsior provides fasteners and fastening systems for proper installation of
Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECPs). RECPs are typically secured with steel staples.
The standard staple is six inches long, eleven gage wire with a one inch crown. Staples
may be purchased in boxes of individual staples or in cartridges for automated
application. Biodegradable stakes offered by Western Excelsior may be substituted at
the same staple rate. Specialty fasteners are available for challenging soil conditions.
To facilitate efficient installation, Western Excelsior also provides staple and stake
applicators that are either manual or automatic. Western Excelsior staple guns and
stake pushers significantly increase the installation efficiency of RECPs.
