Floating Silt Curtain
What is Silt Curtain?
Pioneer silt curtains are flexible sediment control barriers designed to prevent the spread of silt and sediment in lakes and other water bodies when job is being performed in water, or on or near the shoreline. It’s constructed of permeable fabric or non-permeable textile material. The Turbidity Curtain is suspended vertically in the water with a flotation material enclosed in the top pocket and a ballast chain enclosed in the lower pocket.
Standard and custom fabricated size are available with a variety of fabric options, floatation sizes, loading bearings, ballast members, connectors and curtain depths and lengths to suit your project need in Pioneer.
Why do you need Silt Curtain?
Researches of marine life and organisms have found that fine silt particles can affect the living conditions of sea or river creatures and its environment. So, today’s environmental protection policies require companies and Individuals to take all reasonable precautions to prevent sediment contamination of waterways when job is performed.
When construction is taking place immediately adjacent to a waterway, such as a Canal development or construction of a bridge, land reclamation, wharf or jetty, floating silt curtain will be applied to confine sediment and prevent dispersal and contamination of the water body.
