What is a Type 3 Heavy Duty Turbidity Curtain?


Enviro-USA’s Type 3 Floating Turbidity Curtains are for containing silt and controlling turbidity in TIDAL applications where wind, current, and tide changes require a heavy duty, dual cable barrier. Floating Turbidity Barriers are used to control and contain silt and sediment within an immediate work area, thereby preventing it from migrating outside of the work or dredging area and affecting marine life. Floating Turbidity Barriers protect our waters, marine life, and environment.

Who uses it? Type 3 DOT Heavy Duty / Tidal Water Floating Turbidity Barriers are used by contractors while working at shoreline and in ports. Normally required and used by contractors or dredging companies during any marine construction project that is in a tidal application.

When and where should this product be used?

The Type 3 model is recommended when compliance with United States DOT floating turbidity curtain requirements is a must and the marine construction project happens in tidal water application. The heavy-duty design and construction help the barrier withstand the daily tidal forces.

Recommended Applications are:

  • Harbors
  • Ports
  • Shoreline
  • Offshore

Product Options

Floating Turbidity Curtains are available as Permeable or Impermeable, in 50 ft. and 100 ft. sections. The DEPTH is available as required by project and can be as deep as 50 ft. Numerous sections can easily and quickly be connected together.
