Turbidity Curtains

Type 1.DOT is the most frequently specified barrier in the TOUGH GUY® line. It is recommended for construction sites located in protected areas that are exposed only to light winds and to current velocities of less than one foot per second. This type of site may include ponds, shallow lakes, small streams and marshes.

Type 2.DOT is the work horse of the TOUGH GUY® line. It has a top load cable and special stress plates for reinforcing the corners and is designed to handle more severe conditions. It is recommended for lakes, streams, intercoastal and tidal areas where current velocities up to five feet per second are expected.

Type 3.DOT is a special adaption of the Type 2 barrier. Approximately 20 % of the area of the barrier skirt fabric is replaced with a polypropylene filter fabric conforming to some State DOT specifications. The filter fabric is inserted to reduce the pressure on the curtain while retaining silt.
