Geotextile Turbidity Curtains

Type 1 Permeable Floating Barriers

Type 1 Geotextile Turbidity Curtains are an all permeable curtain designed for short term applications in calm water. Constructed entirely from 8 oz. filter fabric, these curtains provide effective filtration in areas with limited flows or wave action. As with other permeable curtains, geotextile filter barriers will allow water to continue to flow through the curtain while silt and turbidity remain within the containment area. Curtains are available in standard depths from three to ten feet (3' to 10'), making them perfect for ditches or temporary containment requirements. Compare all Type 1 Calm Water Turbidity Curtains.
