Floating Silt Curtains

Floating Sediment Barriers & USA Made Silt Boom

turbidity barrierFloating 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.

Available Models:turbidity barrier

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
