What is a Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtain and who is it for?
DOT Type 2 floating turbidity barriers are ideal for containing silt and turbidity in moving water applications. These silt curtains are used to control and contain silt / sediment within an immediate work area thereby preventing anything from floating down stream and affecting marine life. Floating Turbidity Curtains protect our waters and environment whenever construction occurs in a marine environment.
Floating Turbidity Barriers are normally used by contractors working in, around or nearby a body of water.
Why use an DOT Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtain vs. another type of barrier:
The Type 2 model is recommended when compliance with United States DOT floating turbidity curtain requirements is a factor and the marine construction project happens in moving water application.
