Description

Silt curtains, sometimes referred to as turbidity curtains, are floating barriers specifically designed to contain and control the dispersion of particles in a body of water.

They're generally used within marine construction, piling or dredging projects especially in inland waterways and enclosed harbours where the build-up of silt cannot be allowed to disperse beyond the working zone so must be controlled within that area until it settles. Such projects will cause an increase in the turbidity of the water, and the barriers serve to enclose and isolate the working area; they limit the scope for such solids to escape and cause environmental damage. That's where Unique Seaflex SiltStoppers come in.
