Trade Enviro is your trusted silt curtain supplier who specialises in product design, management, supply, deployment and installation of turbidity barriers and silt curtains without the prohibitive price.
Contact our team so we can help you decide on the best solution to control silt migration at your project site.
Preventing silt migration during construction of rock wall
There are several processes and projects that require the use of a silt curtain. As you know, a floating silt curtain helps control and contain silt migration in waterways. It is also deemed mandatory by certain councils and state road authorities. Here are some examples of typical applications where silt curtains are necessary:
- Marine construction activities e.g. building projects, jetty and concrete bridge construction
- Development projects running adjacent to waterways
- Dredging Projects
- Piling operations
- Marine excavation
- Aquatic plant control
- Algae control

You can still create an effective floating turbidity curtain or barrier and ensure a safe passage for marine animals to pass under the curtain. The principle of a silt curtain is to deflect the water towards the bottom of the sea floor taking suspended particles with it. Only a portion of water filtrates through the curtain textile.
Timeframe? How long do you need your curtain in the water?
What’s the condition of the water? is it tidal?
Will I need a directional type anchor system or an embedment style anchor system?
Water follows the path of least resistance and therefore when the water passes under the curtain the suspended soil contaminants and silt sediment is closer to the sea floor promoting it to drop out of suspension and settle to the sea floor faster. Silt curtains primary design function is to promote the settlement of particles without disruption to aquatic systems nearby.

How much buoyant force do I require for the most effective result?
What ballast requirements do I have?

About Silt Curtains
Aquatic booms and barriers such as silt curtains are designed to control the movement of silt from activity in the marine environment; these products consist of a closed cell chamber and a skirt that sits beneath the surface of the water.
The skirt is specially weighted to sit perpendicular to the water column and is usually made of a geotextile mesh, woven or non-woven material.
Silt usually migrates within the first 2 meters of the water column from surface disruption. It’s important to control and settle the sediment so it has no impact on nearby aquatic systems.
Silt curtains are available with different length skirts depending on the application and different size skirts require different floatation and ballast.
Depending on the tidal influence, wind and conditions various anchoring techniques are available.
