Turbidity Curtain & Boom Colors

Color Options

Question: What color options are there for boom and silt barriers? I see that you have options like yellow, but I need a dark, less less intrusive color for an environmental area.

Answer: The standard color for boom and silt curtain is high visibility yellow; however, there are several other boom colors* available.

GEI Works' debris boom and turbidity curtains are manufactured using 8 oz nonwoven geotextile (black) fabric, or more commonly 13 oz, 18 oz, or 22 oz PVC fabrics. The weight of the fabric needed is determined by the water conditions surrounding your project. Not all boom colors are available for all fabric weights. Please contact us for specific information about available color options for your project.

Yellow

Yellow color turbidity curtainYellow is the default color quoted for boom or silt curtain projects, unless you specify otherwise. Yellow is widely used because of it's high visibility in even the roughest water conditions. All products are quoted in yellow, unless otherwise indicated.


Orange

If you're interested in using orange fabric for your boom or silt curtain, please let your GEI Works customer service representative know (products are quoted in yellow, unless otherwise indicated).
