Staked Silt Control Barrier
Staked Silt Barriers are an impermeable fence used along construction sites and roadways to control sheet flow, runoff, and other site discharge. Made from a robust PVC fabric, this fencing offers increased strength when compared to standard silt fencing. This has helped many sites keep sediment contained in even the most demanding conditions.
Staked Barriers are typically constructed from 13 oz., 18 oz. or 22 oz. fabric depending on the demands and requirements of your location. Standard barriers are 44.5" in height and are available in 100' rolls. Barriers should be used in water that is shallower than thirty inches (30"), such as along road sides, and in ditches, canals, shallow ponds or lakes.

Staked Silt Fence & BMP Products
The staked silt barrier is an excellent choice for implementation as a BMP (Best Management Practice) on any job site or work area where traditionally fencing will not work. Since the fabric is higher in strength, it is commonly used in small ditches or in areas where increased water flow is expected.

Silt Fence vs. Staked Barrier
When comparing fencing products, one of the most common questions involves comparing the Standard Staked Silt Fence and the Staked Silt Barrier. Some differences and similarities can be found below:
|Product||Staked Silt Fence||Staked Silt Barrier|
|Material||Impermeable 13 oz.,
18 oz., or 22 oz. PVC
|Woven Filter Fabric:
50 gram, 70 gram or 100 gram
|Design||Stakes Offered Separately||Stakes Offered Separately or Pre-Attached to the Fencing|
|Use||Does not allow water through the fabric||Filters sediment-laced water as it flows off the site|
|Typical Sizing||100 ft. Sections||100 ft. or 300 ft. Sections sold by the pallet|

Typical Staked Barrier Installation
Typical installation procedure for the staked barrier is as follows:
- Dig an 8 inch deep trench along the desired flow control path, placing fill on up slope side of trench.
- On down slope side of trench install 1"x1" wooden stakes (re-bar of similar) on 6' centers maximum. These are to protrude 36" above the gradient.
- Unroll the Silt barrier and fasten to stakes with ties - 36 inches attached to stakes and 8 inches in trench (HEMMED EDGE IS TOP).
- Once entire run is in place and desired flow diversion path is in place then back-fill the 8 inch trench trapping the bottom 8 inches of the silt barrier, effectively creating a runoff seal.
This system works best on gentle to moderately sloped sites with porous soil. Barriers can be used in water depths less than 30" and no flow. In place of back-fill use sand bags to create bottom seal.
