Wire Backed Silt Fence
Silt Fence with Wire-Backing: Strength & Stability
The Wire Back Silt Fence is a strong erosion control fence designed for areas with demanding silt and erosion control requirements. Offering more strength and stability than a standard silt fence, wire back silt fence includes wire fencing that lines the entire fabric of the fence. This strengthens the silt fence for use against large amounts of sediment or silt.
Wire backed silt barriers are available in a 70 or 100 gram fabric and include several field and welded wire options. Models are typically sold by the pallet so minimum order requirements may apply. Please check out our Wire Back Silt Fence Specifications below or give us a call for more information.

Use of a wire back silt fence can help to slow flow rates and increase the filtration efficiency of materials. Standard silt fencing has an expected usable life of six months. However, this may decrease depending on the demands and silt containment requirements of your site.
Additional Silt Fencing
Meeting the requirements of multiple locations, silt fencing is also available in several other models including:
Each of these options is designed to meet the requirements of different construction sites and sediment build-up locations.
When to use a Staked Silt Barrier: Staked Silt Barriers are unique in that they use impermeable fabrics rather than a filter fabric. These barriers should be used in areas with high sheet flows or in areas where significant amounts of water runoff needs to be redirected rather than filtered.
