Stainless steel stress plates are bolted together to firmly clamp the reinforced (4 layers), tension member equipped, fabric at the ends of the baffle section. The bottom ballast chain and top tension member terminate into these stress plates at the sloped edges of the baffle (where applicable).
The length of the shore anchor cables may be varied to impact the appropriate amount of overall tension to the baffle as well as to allow the baffle to be adjusted for variations in water level of the lagoon basin, should that be required.
