.DOT Series (Floating Barriers)
FLOATING TURBIDITY BARRIERS consist of a top flotation boom, an impervious fabric curtain extending downward under water, and a heavy galvanized steel chain sealed into a hem along the entire bottom of the curtain to provide ballast to keep the curtain vertical in the water. End hems are sealed around a rope and grommet to allow attachment to each other with rope or bolt/nuts/washers.
- Standard float color is Black. Other colors available include green and yellow. All are UV protected.
- Standard mesh skirt depths are 18 in., 24 in., and 36 in.
- Standard length is 50 ft. 10 ft.- 100 ft. lengths available.

STAKED BARRIERS are continuous panels of impervious vinyl-polyester fabric that, installed correctly, can contain stormwater runoff or re-direct it to proper channels or retention areas. On-land installation is similar to that of silt fence, with 8 inches below grade and 36 inches above grade attached to stakes. Staked Barriers can also be installed in up to 18 inches of water.
The fabric curtain has a heat sealed hem along the top edge and is approximately 44″ inches wide. A narrow trench 8 inches deep is dug along the perimeter line and stakes are driven every 6 feet along the down slope side of the trench. The upper portion of the barrier is attached to the stakes with staples, wires or nylon ties, keeping the top of the barrier 36 inches above grade. The lower edge of the curtain is placed in the trench which is then backfilled. This system works best in porous soils on moderately sloped sites. The stakes may be wood or metal including re-bar.
Weed | Debris Booms
(aka. Ribbon Barrier)
Helps protect waterways from undesirable VEGETATION and unsightly DEBRIS. Combines the latest technologies in floating booms and hydro-weed containment to help control plants that spread by fragmentation, including:
- EURASIAN WATERMILFOIL
Unique double-mesh filter skirt keeps water moving, but barricades plants and debris. FOR BEST RESULTS:
Spread boom from bank to bank and use in conjunction with chemical or biological aquatic weed control program. Accumulated debris/vegetation should be removed from behind barrier periodically to ensure free flow of water and reduce pressure on boom.
