Type 3 HD Permeable Silt Curtain

Heavy Duty Floating Filtration and Silt Control

Type 3 HD Permeable Turbidity BarrierTriton Permeable Type 3 Silt Curtains are designed for use in rigorous jobsite conditions where both turbidity control and filtration are needed. This heavy duty silt curtain functions like standard floating silt screens, keeping jobsites in compliance with Federal and State regulations by containing turbid water. With its reinforced geotextile panel, the silt screen's design also acts as a filter, allowing water to pass through the curtain, while removing particles. This helps reduce settling time, but the primary benefit of Triton's Permeable Silt Curtain design is that it allows a certain amount of flow through the containment area. This reduces pressure and load on the curtain, providing increased performance and longevity of use in the field.

Type 3 Permeable Silt Curtain Accessories

Turbidity Curtain Anchor KitLet us make it easy for you. Get all the components needed for your sediment curtain installation from one source and in one shipment. Type 3 silt curtain accessory components include:

  • Tow Bridles – Use a tow bridle for curtain installation to help prevent unnecessary stress tears and damage that can occur when locating (or relocating) curtain.

  • Anchor Kits – These pre-assembled anchor kits provide a convenient solution to stabilizing and controlling the turbidity barrier, and are quick to install. Kit components are also available separately.

  • Floating Marker Lights – Often a requirement for projects on waterways with significant boater traffic, floating marker lights meet safety requirements by providing night time demarcation of the construction zone.

  • Reefing Lines – Installing turbidity curtain across different water depths is a breeze with reefing lines. This handy feature lets you adjust the depth of each panel by simply raising or lowering the lines. Note: Best practice is to leave a clearance of 1 foot between the base of the turbidity curtain and the water body's floor.

  • Tidal Compensators – For use in areas with fluctuations in the water depth on the shore, such as tidal areas. Save yourself time in manually adjusting the curtain after storm events or tidal changes. The Tidal Compensator will take care of it for you, automatically adjusting with changes in water levels to keep the curtain secure and at the proper depth in the water.
