Choosing the Right Silt Barrier for Your Location
Choosing the right turbidity barrier for your location will depend on several factors, including water flow, wave height/frequency, and tides. Any time you are considering using a barrier for your location, we advise customers to review the following conditions on their location:
- How fast is the water moving in your location?
- Are there waves?
- How high are the waves and how frequent?
- What Ttides are present?
- In what type of project will this barrier be used?
- What is the duration of the project?
- What type of material will be contained?
- What is the depth of your water?
- Is there wind? If so, what is the wind speed?
While silt barriers come in standard sizes and lengths, they are also extremely adaptable. If you have a project with specific requirements, please don't hesitate to let us know. Curtains have been made with depths as short as three feet and as long as 100 feet.
