Silt curtains are specifically designed to contain and control the dispersion of suspended solids in the water column during pile driving, site work, dredging, and bank reprofiling, quarrying and marine construction.
They are vertical floating, yet flexible, installations which extend downward from the water surface to a specified water depth, which is usually tight to the bed. The curtain is maintained in a vertical position by closed cell floats at the top and a ballast chain along the bottom for anchorage.
The curtains are 100% impermeable therefore contain even fine colloidal silts. By confining suspended silt particles within the working area they are allowed time to settle out and thus avoid serious detrimental impact on the local environs when the curtains are finally removed.
Our silt curtains are used in the following applications:
• Canals & Rivers, Lakes, Ponds & Reservoirs
• Dredging Operations
• Marina’s, Harbours & Bays
• Sheet Pile Driving
