Floating Silt Curtain
Floating silt curtains are capable of floating even when in the presence of solid materials that may adhere to the curtain. Features like buoyancy, permeability and impermeability, and even color can be
customized to your requirements. Floating silt curtains can be
installed in open water (as in a lake or in the ocean) or near any
shore where disruption can discharge sediment into a river or stream.
Where construction is taking place immediately adjacent to a waterway, such as a canal development or construction of a bridge,
wharf or jetty, these measures may be impractical. In this case a
floating silt curtain may be used to confine sediment and prevent
dispersal and contamination of the water body.
Floating Silt Curtains are preassembled in 50 ft lengths, and connecting
hardware is included with each unit so the system can be expanded to
Floating Silt Curtain systems over 800 feet long have been utilized to
isolate large portions of a water body. The 50 ft sections need only be
connected to the desired length, weighted down with the addition of a
chain or cable, and deployed into position.
A weight must be added to the bottom sleeve prior
to use. A rope is provided in the sleeve to assist in placing a chain, cable or
other weight. Weight can also be added by making small slits in the bottom
sleeve and inserting sections of rebar, pipe, steel, or any other heavy
