  • Economy Grade Model (50 gram Material)
  • Contractor Grade Model (70 gram Material)
  • DOT Grade Model (100 gram Material)

This fencing provides options for different sites and silt control requirements. Fencing is typically sold in rolls that are either

silt fenceWhen using construction sediment fences, you should always be engaged in frequent or consistent inspections of the fence. Inspections should include:

  • Fence Inspection for Tears or Gaps
  • Inspection After Rain Events
  • Immediate Repair of Found Gaps or Tears
  • Removal of Accumulated Sediments (this should be performed when the sediment build-up reaches one half to one third (1/2 to 1/3) the height of the fence or when sediment is causing a noticeable strain on the fence.

 

Staked Silt Barrier

staked silt barrierFor control of areas that have a water or sheet flow, another great option is the Staked Silt Barrier. While standard silt barriers are designed for use in water locations, the staked barrier will take this fabric and place it on stakes. Unlike the silt fence, this fabric is designed to be impermeable, allowing water to be directed to the nearest pond or storage location.

  • Fabric: Typically features 18 oz. Impermeable PVC Fabric
  • Tensile Strength: Around 350 lbs.
  • Placed Along the Desired Flow Control Path
