| ECO-BLOK™ BARRIER-BLOK™ and FILTER-BLOK™:
Old Need.. New Technology
For decades, sand bags have served as the universal device for erosion control and many other uses. But with new federal, state, and local clean water and storm water regulation, sand and gravel bags can create as many problems as they may solve. Eco-Blok™ solves those problems.
Please note that in many project specifications, Eco-Blok™ products may be referred to as water diversion blocks or water control blocks or erosion control blocks.
What Makes Eco-Blok™ SpecialUnlike sand bags which break and fall apart, Eco-Blok™ is a precision manufactured product that will last for years. It can be stacked, glued, and staked in place. Its patent pending design allows Eco-Bloks™ to be interlocked and re-used over and over again to solve your erosion control problems.
Eco-Blok™ is Friendly to the Environment
Each year, tens of millions of waste tires are dumped in land fills across the country. Each Eco-Blok™ is made from 100% recycled rubber tires and uses up the rubber from approximately two passenger car tires. It's good for the environment, and it's good for business, it solves your erosion control problems in a way that is friendly to the environment.
Barrier or Filter to Meet Your NeedsEco-Blok™ comes in two versions, Barrier-Blok™ or Filter-Blok™. For those applications where you need complete hold back of liquid, semi-liquid, and solid matter, BARRIER is your best choice. If you want to allow water to flow through with the ability to capture solid and particulate matter, the FILTER version will produce the protection you need.
ECO-BLOK™ In THE NEWS
Eco-Blok™ Provides Solution for Loveland Colorado Development
“A month ago we experienced what our local storm drainage department called a five-year storm. We got two inches of rain in a 45-minute period. They were an absolute success,” says Giuliano. “In talking to our local storm drainage department, everything else would have failed, they said. Failure rate was 25% or less, and after talking with our stormwater department, we fared better than they had done; the methods that we used fared better. We stopped a lot of the sediment, almost all of the sediment in the street. It never entered the storm sewer system. We didn’t have to clean out any of our inlet boxes. We found them to be much easier to rehabilitate afterwards. Those same blocks are being used again today.” Suppliers and Manufacturers List
