    Curtain Floating Barriers for Turbidity Control

    Turbidity CurtainFloating Turbidity Control Curtains are impermeable barriers* constructed of a flexible reinforced thermoplastic material dielectrically welded to provide an upper hem for enclosing flotation material and a lower hem for enclosing ballast material. The skirt depth of the silt curtain is the material vertically below the upper hem. The length of the turbidity curtain is the horizontal distance between ends. Additional construction features are dependent on silt curtain design.

    Curtain Floating Barriers are designed to control the settling of solids (silt) suspended in water by providing a controlled area of containment. This condition of suspension (turbidity) is usually created by disrupting natural conditions through construction or dredging in the marine environment. The containment of settleable solids is desirable to reduce the impact area of these solids.

    Although the Silt Curtains listed are standard, Boom Environmental can custom design specific floating booms to solve unique problems. What this means is that the standard designs are available with a variety of fabric options, flotation sizes, load-bearing and ballast members, connectors and lengths. When a variation on a standard design won't work, Boom Environmental engineers can design to meet the requirements.
