Floating Silt Barrier Anchoring Systems
One of the most frequently used accessories for silt barrier installation is the Marine Anchor Kit. These accessories can include:
- Anchoring Lines
The typical process is to attach the anchor to the buoy, then attach the buoy to the silt barrier. This helps to keep the barrier in its desired location without stretching it out or putting additional pressure directly on the barrier itself.
Another common accessory is the towing bridle. This device is designed to attach to the end of a barrier to help distribute weight during a towing or deployment process. Bridles may also include a small flotation to prevent them from getting lost in the towing process.
When adjustment of the bottom curtain is required, Reefing Lines are an ideal choice! Made from a black, poly twisted rope design, these adjustment lines are built into the bottom of the skirt to help raise and lower the bottom depth. This can be used in locations where the bottom contour of the ground varies or in areas expecting to see changes in the water depth.
The tidal compensator is a unique accessory designed specifically for areas that are experiencing tides or changing water heights. These items will be connected directly to both a vertical structure, such as a pier or dock, and the boom or barrier. As water levels change, the tidal compensator will move up down bringing the barrier with it. This will allow booms and barriers to adjust to changing waters.
