DOT Type 2 Turbidity Curtain – Medium Duty for Moving Water

General Characteristics and Applications

What is a DOT Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtain and who is it for?

Type 2 Floating Turbidity Barriers, also known as Floating Turbidity Barriers, Turbidity Curtains, Silt Screens, Silt Barriers, and Silt Curtains, are for containing silt, sediment, and turbidity while a contractor is working in or near MOVING WATER such as a river.

Our Turbidity Curtains confine the silt, sediment and the cloudy water, to the immediate work area thereby preventing it from floating down stream and affecting marine life. Floating Silt Screens protect our waters, environment, and marine life whenever construction occurs in or near a body of water.

Who is it for?

Floating Turbidity Curtains are used by contractors working in, around or near a body of water.

When and where should this product be used?

The Type 2 model is required when it has been spec’d in as a project/job requirement and/or when the marine construction project happens to be in or near moving water, such as a river.


Where are DOT Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtains used?

  • Rivers
  • Inland Waterways
  • Harbors
  • Protected Ports
  • Lakes with wind and/or current
