Silt Barrier Products and Solutions
Silt Curtain for Turbidity Control: USA-Based Manufacturer
A silt barrier is a land or water based product designed to contain silt during construction, dredging, or marine repair projects. For water areas, Triton floating silt barriers (also known as silt curtains, silt booms, or turbidity curtains) surround and contain suspended silt and allow it time to settle. For land-based projects, staked silt fence forms a barrier for runoff filtration. Correctly installing these products helps you stay in compliance by containing silt and reducing stormwater pollution. All GEI Works floating sediment barriers and are made in the USA, and available in several models.

Triton Floating Silt Barriers
Triton Floating Silt Barriers and Turbidity Curtains are some of the most common solutions for water based silt or turbidity control. Designed to keep solids contained long enough to settle back to the bottom, these barriers help address pollution on marine construction sites, shorelines, and other areas dealing with displaced silt or sediment.
Due to varying water conditions from site to site, these turbidity barriers are available in the following models:
- Type 1 for Calm Water (Economy, and DOT)
- Type 2 for Moving Water (Contractor, DOT, and Heavy Duty)
- Type 3 for Demanding Conditions (DOT and Heavy Duty)

Land-Based Silt and Sediment Barriers
Silt Fencing and Barriers are the perfect solution to silt or sediment build up around your site. Created to contain sediment, help prevent erosion and redirect sheetflow, these silt barriers act as perimeter control and are a reliable line of defense before materials leave your site.

Floating Debris and Oil Containment Boom
For areas dealing with pollutants other than silt or turbidity, we also offer Oil and Debris Barriers for control of floating particles, oil, and other debris. These booms are very similar to our curtains, but will feature a shortened skirt. Rather than working to increase settling times, these booms focus on containing items floating on the surface of the water. Containment boom applications include:
- Aquatic Plants
- Sargassum Seaweed
- Oil Spills
- Floating Debris
- Trash and Plastic Particles
- Small Leaves and Timbers

Silt Barriers and Containment Regulations
The enforcement of the Clean Water Act (1998) and NPDES phase II (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System) Regulations make protecting water resources a high priority. Federal and state regulators enforce these rules. Our products are designed to provide cost effective ways to avoid shutdowns or work stoppages. The correct use of these debris barriers will help keep your project in compliance and on track!

Stormwater Best Management Practices for Silt Filtration
In addition to our floating turbidity barriers and silt curtains, we also offer several options for land-based silt containment, filtration, pollution, and erosion control. Often used to lower TSS and NTU levels, these silt and debris BMPs are often used in construction, pile extraction, dredging, marine repair, and other environmental remediation activities. The filtration products include:
