Turbidity Barrier Standard Sizing
Standard sizing for Triton Turbidity Barriers is typically in 50 or 100 foot lengths, with a skirt depth of 5 feet. However, as the manufacturer, we also are happy to work with you in building a solution that will satisfy your project's requirements.
Turbidity barrier is designed to be flexible and can be made to different sizing requirements as needed. The section lengths for the barriers will typically stay the same, while the depths can fluctuate depending on your location.
Depths can fall in a range anywhere from 3' to 100' and are commonly built to location-specific requirements. It is typically advised that the silt barrier feature a depth that allows the curtain to sit about one foot from the floor of your location for maximum efficiency.
Adjusting the Turbidity Barrier for Longer Lengths
In order to get the length needed in your location, sections of the barrier are connected together. Depending on which barrier type you have chosen, this can be achieved through grommet eyes or slide connectors located at the ends of the barrier. These will allow grommet eyes to be tied together or slide connectors to be joined so your barrier can reach its needed length.
