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.
For permanent installations utilizing our TRM and HPTRMs, the Falcon Anchors and Pins can be used to create erosion control systems designed to firmly secure and support soils deep into the soil strata. Falcon Anchors and Pins are an innovative method of reducing erosion, increasing soil stability, and aiding vegetation establishment, while saving time and labor costs.
