Pile Extraction Silt Barrier
Silt Control During Piling Extraction
The Pile Extraction Silt Barrier is a uniquely designed barrier equipped to surround pilings as they are extracted from a location. Built as an impermeable sock, these turbidity barriers fit directly around a piling to contain materials immediately surrounding the pile.
How Do Pile Extraction Silt Barriers Work?
On the top of the pile extraction barrier you will see a top section opening. This opening is located in the center of the barrier to allow for the unit to fit directly over the top of the piling. As the pile is extracted the skirt will extend down to cover the depth of the piling. This allows coverage of the entire piling to contain materials and prevent any spreading.

Pile Extraction Curtain Installation
The installation of this silt barrier is designed to be simple, fast and efficient so the pile extraction process is not interrupted. This process can be explained below:
- Step 1: Clear out the area surrounding the piling/pile.
- Step 2: Connect the silt protector to the top of the pile. Once the protector is in place begin to remove the piling.
- Step 3: As the pile is being removed the skirt of the barrier will begin to unroll as the piling comes out of the water. Once the pile has been removed tie off the bottom portion of the barrier for contained transportation to its disposal location.
Other Silt Barrier Options
In addition to this specialized pile extraction barrier we also offer several standard barriers for controlling silt and turbidity during construction, dredging or pile cleaning projects. Barriers are chosen based on your site conditions, water velocity and more. View all turbidity and silt barriers here.
