Suitable for use in tidal zones, rivers, and bays, Type 3 DOT Turbidity Curtain is designed for rapid deployment and is engineered for medium flows. This curtain is permeable to allow water flow while retaining the silt and sediment.
The sturdy design of the Type 3 DOT ensures reliable performance while resisting clogging. Different filter cloths can be used to accommodate the design of the project and the type of sediment present.
Type 3 Turbidity Curtain meets AASHTO M-288-92 Erosion Class A specifications. The permeable, woven geotextile skirt is standard on the Type 3. This curtain is equipped with dual tension cables under the flotation.
Depths other than 5 ft are available by request and are available in a few days. Contact us for pricing and availability.
