Turbidity Curtain Materials and Construction
The main portions of the turbidity curtain are made with a highly durable and resistant PVC material. This material is used to cover the top flotation device and creates the entire skirt of the curtain. The PVC provides high resistance water conditions and and other materials (such as silt or heavy metals) that you are trying to contain.
Connecting parts of the turbidity curtain utilize the use of galvanized steel. This type of material is often used for the bottom chain and tension cable. For the top fittings or for larger curtain types, we usually use an aluminum material. This material is used on fittings including section slide connectors. If specifically required for your location, all fittings can be replaced with stainless steel.
Choosing Your Turbidity Barrier:
Determining which type of barrier you require depends on a wide range of site specific factors including:
- Velocity of Water
- Speed of Wind
- Height of Waves
