We require a system in which the silt barrier or the floating boom is for 33 meters in length, plus the depth is required to be around 12 meters. We also need the length and dimensions of a standard silt fence. I hope you do international business. Could you customize it as per our specifications? (Inquiry from Dubai, United Arab Emirates.)
