Floating Silt and Turbidity Barriers

Prevent The Spread Of Silt And Sediment In Water Bodies

Our sediment control barriers are designed to prevent the spread of silt and sediment from construction sites into downstream or connecting waterways. Floating Silt and Turbidity Barriers are trusted by leaders in the construction industry to consistently reduce their environmental impact by keeping the material in a contained area until it can settle out of suspension and be removed. With the help of these barriers, you can stop silt and sediment from polluting watercourses while performing construction.

Floating Silt Curtains

Turbidity barriers

Constructed from impermeable materials, Layfield turbidity barriers are suspended within a body of water, supported by a floatation material within the top edge, and held vertically by a ballast within the bottom edge. These barriers are used in different applications to keep work areas completely contained. Let us help you protect waterbodies from the impact of silt and sediment.

Floating Silt barriers

We build our Floating Silt Barriers in various depths with high-visibility floating tops and a weight pocket on the bottom for a tight fit. The permeable body fabric allows water to flow while preventing fine particles from escaping. The result is a low-maintenance and highly reliable curtain that will help protect the surrounding ecosystem.

Product Details

Floating Silt and Turbidity Barriers effectively deflect and contain sediment within a limited area and provide sufficient retention time for the sediment particles to settle out.
