Model Type 2 - Moving Water Silt Curtains



The Type 2 Floating Turbidity Curtain is a contractor favorite for silt and turbidity control in moving water conditions. Made to DOT requirements, these curtains have helped to control dispersed materials in rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, and roadside water bodies. Standard design of the turbidity curtain uses a 22 oz. PVC material, bottom ballast chain and robust section connectors. Working to match different sites, the Type 2 curtain is available in both permeable and impermeable models.

Choosing the right Type 2 Silt Curtain for your location will depend on several factors including your flow rate, wave frequency and winds. Type 2 Economy and DOT curtains are typically our contractor grade barriers and are designed for short term applications that involve moving water conditions. For long term projects or conditions that require extended protection, Type 2 HD and Type 2 HD Permeable Curtains are a significantly stronger option. These curtains are higher in strength, making them better equipped for stronger curtains or longer term project.


Any time you are considering a curtain for an area with moving elements, there are a couple of elements that should be taken into consideration. The three most important conditions to consider include the following:

  • Wind: How fast and in what direction?
  • Waves: How tall and how frequently?
  • Current: How fast?
