Product Code: DOTC1
Made in USA #1Icon #4

Product Information

U.S. Barricades Type 1 DOT Turbidity Curtains or silt barriers consist of a top flotation boom, impervious fabric curtain extending downward under water with galvanized steel chain sealed into a hem along the entire bottom of the curtain. This will provide ballast and keep the curtain vertical in moving water. All end hems are sealed around a rope and grommets to allow attachment to each other with rope or bolt/nuts/washers.

Type 1 DOT Turbidity Curtains are use in protected areas that are exposed only to light winds and to current velocities of less than one foot per second. This type of site may include ponds, shallow lakes, small streams and marshes.

Manufactured in three basic types for different water conditions and project needs - Type I, II and III for slow, medium, and fast moving waters, respectively. Depending on the state or locale, variations to these basic types/specifications exist and are often tailored for specific project needs. U.S. Barricades manufactures turbidity curtains to specification for many state DOT requirements in addition to the standard types. Turbidity Curtains and Sil Barriers are made in the United States.
