Floating Silt Curtains
Floating Sediment Barriers & USA Made Silt Boom
Floating Silt Curtains are frequently utilized for any construction location displacing silt, sediment or solids near a body of water. These sediment barriers contain silt, clay or other particles that cause turbidity. These particles suspend and can be harmful when unchecked. Floating silt and sediment barriers provide time for gravity to work on the suspended particles until they can settle back down to the bottom of a contained area. Floating silt curtains can help lower TSS (total suspended solids) levels and keep sites in compliance. All Triton sediment barriers are made in the USA. If you're not sure which floating silt curtain you need, you can review our Turbidity Curtain Selection Guide.

Which Floating Silt Barrier is right for me?
When you are looking to control silt in a water body with waves, currents, tides, or moving water, a Type 2 Curtain is recommended. Type 1 Curtain is recommended for water bodies with no current. These floating silt barriers come with the addition of a tension cable that stabilizes and control silt.
For more information, see our Turbidity Curtain Selection Guide.
Dredging, Remediation, or Long Term Projects
For areas dealing with projects or increased demands (high levels of silt, currents, or waves), the Type 2 and Type 3 Heavy Duty Curtains are the best option. These curtains are made with stronger fabrics, more robust connectors, and higher strength cables to accommodate increased loads, pressure, or site demands.

- Type 2 Silt Barrier HD Permeable Curtains
- Type 3 Silt Barrier HD Curtains
- Type 3 Silt Barrier HD Permeable Curtains
Heavy duty (HD) models are designed with a 22 oz. PVC fabric and feature a top universal bulk slide connector. Bulk connectors increase the strength of the connection point and allow for higher currents, waves, or sediment to remain contained.
Permeable Silt Curtains & Silt Boom
Permeable Silt Curtains are used in specific projects where high flows require a permeable fabric option. Permeable curtains feature a geotextile filter panel throughout the depth of the skirt. Models include:
Silt Control on Land- Staked Sediment Barrier
For sediment and silt control in a land-based location, staked silt fencing and barriers are also available to control and contain silt. Often used as a containment perimeter around construction sites or repair areas, these construction fence models are available in three standard models: Economy (50 gram), Contractor
(70 gram), and DOT (100 gram). Each model is also offered as rolls or rolls with pre-attached stakes. Additional models include orange barriers, wire back fencing, and more.
