Type 3 HD Turbidity Barrier Accessories

Let us make it easy for you. We can provide all the components needed for your heavy duty silt curtain project and have it delivered ready for installation in just one shipment.

Triton Type 3 HD Turbidity Barrier 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.
