Heavy Duty Turbidity Curtain
for On-Water Construction Sites
Question: I need a heavy duty turbidity curtain. I'm doing some re-construction on a group of homes that were set on fire. They are located in a harbor, and so I need some preventative measures for pollution.
Answer: For demanding applications, the strongest barrier we offer is the Type 3 Turbidity Curtain. These curtains are built with robust materials to help the barrier hold up in demanding applications. Typical specifications you will find on this turbidity curtain include the following:
If desired, the skirt on these barriers can also be built with permeable geotextile fabric that allows water to pass through curtain. This helps to relieve some of the pressure that is placed on the barrier by allowing water to pass through, but preventing sediment and silt from also passing through the system.
