Type 1 Turbidity Barrier for Calm Water Areas USA Made

Each Triton Type 1 silt barrier is specifically designed for use in calm water areas such as swales, ditches, canals, small ponds, lakes and harbors. Made in the USA and available in low cost short term and long term models, these silt barriers surround projects to increase settling times and prevent spreading of materials. Available type 1 silt curtain models include economy, contractor, and DOT.

PVC) and the bottom ballast chain (3/16").
