Type 2 Heavy Duty Turbidity Curtain is built to support Clean Water Act compliance requirements where jobsite conditions are more rigorous, such as moving water, currents (up to 1 knot), tides, waves (up to 2 feet), or moderate wind. Common applications for Type 2 Turbidity Curtain include dredging projects, shoreline construction, boat dock installations, and rip rap projects.
Using only rugged and reliable components, our standard options and specifications for Type 2 Heavy Duty Turbidity Curtain is listed below. Custom options are also available on request to satisfy specific jobsite requirements. We also offer a selection of other Type 2 Turbidity Curtains, including DOT and Permeable. See: Type 2 Turbidity Curtains.
When installed as directed, Type 2 Heavy Duty Turbidity Curtain provides protection from construction-related turbidity by creating a secure containment area for the sediment-laden water. The barriers stay in place until the project has been completed and the sediment has settled once again to the watershed's floor. You'll be pleased with the competitive turbidity curtain cost, quality, and turn-time of this USA-made turbidity curtain.
