Floating Silt Curtain
FAQ: Which Silt Curtain Should I Use for a Shoreline Construction Project?
Question: We need a floating silt curtain for a shoreline construction project. We would need one silt curtain, 100 feet with a 5 foot skirt and anchor accessories. Do you have a floating silt curtain like this available? The curtain will be used in conditions with about 1 knot of water flow and 1 foot high waves. Which silt curtain can I use? Do you offer the anchors as well? How do we go about with the purchasing process?
Answer: Thank you for contacting us! For the conditions that you have specified, the best option would be one of our Type 2 Floating Silt Curtains. These curtains are made from robust materials that allow the curtain to successfully contain items in moving water conditions. This will include flow rates up to 1.5 knots and waves up to 36" in height.
Standard Type 2 Silt Curtain Options
The standard options for the Type 2 Silt Curtain include either a medium or heavy duty barrier with impermeable or permeable fabric. The most common fabric used is our impermeable material; however, a permeable filter skirt can be created if specifically required or needed in your location.
In-stock options typically include section lengths of either 50 or 100 feet and a depth of 5 feet.
Silt Curtain Accessory Options
Accessory options available for the turbidity and silt curtains include several components to help hold down and install the barrier in your location. Accessory options for these curtains include the following:
- Anchors and/or Anchoring Systems
- Tow Bridles
- Standard or HD Tidal Compensator
