DOT Type 1 Floating Turbidity Barrier


“Compliant with DOT 1 Floating Turbidity Curtain Requirements”

DOT Type 1 - "Calm Water" Floating Turbidity Curtains also known as Silt Curtains are most commonly used for areas that are calm & protected such as small lakes, ponds, canals and waterways with little or no current, to retain silts, sediment, and turbidity within the construction area. We normally keep some in stock and ready to ship.

Absorbents International’s DOT 1 Floating Turbidity Curtains are manufactured in compliance with most states DOT Type 1 requirements. Floating Turbidity Curtains prevent debris, silt and sediment from traveling outside the immediate work area and potentially damaging marine life and habitats. The skirt depth is determined by the body of water that you'll be working in.  Skirt depth can be custom ordered to any depth and/or with angles.

Applications Include:
lakes, canals, and waterways, and ponds with calm winds and very little current.
