Woven Geotextile Fabric

silt fence, silt fence fabricSilt fence fabric is a temporary erosion control measure used on construction sites, slopes, hills, and other work areas to contain and control sediment. Silt fencing fabric is typically made from a woven material that offers both permeability and a high tensile strength. This allows water to continue to flow through the material, while still keeping silt and sediment safely retained.
