Floating Water Baffles
Floating baffles, also known as water baffles, diversion baffles, or lagoon baffles are impervious floating curtain designed to create a hydraulic barrier in aquatic systems and improve overall water quality.
They’re designed incorporating gradients to create a complete floating barrier to promote settling from increased retention time and adjusted flow pattern. Promoting water quality by reducing the number of suspended solids in the water.
Typically used in water treatment ponds as part of the treatment process baffles control the flow pattern and change particle distribution by directing water flow in an alternate direction and motion to what would normally occur.
Trade Enviro supply closed cell foam baffles for shorter terms deployments and external float systems depending upon applications and project demand. We can assess your application and guide you through the process so call us today.
Trade Enviro design supply and install baffles if you’re requiring a turnkey solution on your next project.
Simple Floating Water Baffle Design
The typical water flow is disrupted by the baffles, forcing the water to work harder and travel further to reach the discharge point as opposed to a natural environment below:

If viewing on a mobile device please slide from right to left to see full table data.
FREEBOARD: Distance from water line to top of the float chamber
SKIRT: Material used between the float and the ballast chain pocket (PVC)
DRAFT: Distance from the water line to the bottom of the curtain
BALLAST: Area of curtain closest to the sea floor, weighted with gal chain to ensure curtain shape and integrity
CONNECTOR: ASTM standard, Z-connector
