Silt Curtains provide a waterborne barrier around waterfront civil construction projects, restricting damage from sediment runoff into waterways such as rivers, lakes and harbours.
The Curtain is constructed from a PVC Coated top float chamber using oil resistant, crumble-proof foam blocks – this section is longitudinally reinforced with polyester webbing for extra strength.
A non-woven geotextile skirt below the float chamber restricts water flow and allows the suspended sediment to settle. A PVC Coated chain pocket is attached to the bottom of the geofabric skirt to provide sufficient ballast to keep it taut.
Silt curtains are used by construction companies, marine service companies, erosion and sediment control contractors, consultants, councils and state road authorities for projects including:
• Bridge building • Road widening on foreshore • Road repairs on foreshore • Port development • Dredging • Jetty development • Piling • Foreshore development • Tailings dams • Sediment ponds
Stratex can supply the Silt Curtain with the skirt folded and multiple sections connected, up to a length of 100 metres per pallet. This enables immediate deployment of the Silt Curtain when it is onsite.
