Note for ALL Salt Water Areas

Any time you are implementing a floating silt barrier in salt water oceans or lakes, it is recommended that your floating barrier feature Stainless Steel Cables and Zinc Anode Components. These components offer a higher resistance to corrosion, common with extended salt water use.

Dealing with a Short Term Project? Working with a Tight Project Budget? Standard galvanized components will work in salt water areas for a period up to 12 months.

Additional Type 2 Floating Barrier Models

For short term control in moving water areas, Type 2 curtains are also available in a contractor and DOT grade model. These curtains feature an impermeable 13 oz or 18 oz fabric for effective containment around your job or construction site.

Triton Type 2 Floating Barriers for Long Term Projects

For many projects and locations, having a higher strength curtain is essential to keeping the barrier in position during extended use. In extended use applications, Type 2 HD and Type 2 HD Permeable can be a more reliable option. Made from a fabric with increased strength, these curtains are able to accommodate pressure from dredging projects, construction projects, shoreline repair, and more.

Floating Barrier Type 2 Models:

  • Type 2 HD (Heavy Duty) Curtain
  • Type 2 HD (Heavy Duty) Permeable Curtain

When compared to contractor grade curtains, HD models offer a couple of added strength options.

  1. Fabric: 13 oz/18 oz vs. 22 oz- The first difference between contractor and HD models is the type of fabric. HD models will feature a minimum 22 oz fabric to retain strength in moving water locations, while contractor curtains feature less robust 13 or 18 oz PVC material.

  2. Top Connector: Top Stress Plate vs. Bulk Connector- The second difference between these models is the top connector. HD models use a higher strength universal bulk connector. This is able to accommodate increased loads and stress.
