Silt fencing is used to prevent sediment from leaving a construction site.
Effective procedures put in place minimises sediment leaving a building site – preventing sand, soil, cement and other building materials from reaching our waterways.
The Sediment Control Centre has a range of silt fences that meet the needs of builders and civil contractors. The entire range is constructed of woven polypropylene, with a selvedged edge to prevent fraying and enhance durability.
Silt Fencing around perimeter of site
|Name||Flow Rate||Features||Target Market||Comment|
|Standard SC01||30L/sec||Reasonable flow rate & strong construction||Builders||Flow rates are greater than cheaper imports – reducing the chance of damming and subsequent sediment loss.|
|Superior SC02||40L/sec||Tension tape & depth indicator||Builders & Civil Contractors||Easier to set up and less likely to collapse than the Standard Silt Fence-higher flow rate|
|Premium SC03||110L/sec||Builders & Civil Contractors||Target Market||More ‘freestanding’ than the above, making it easier to erect and more likely to be reused. Higher flow properties can manage steep slopes and areas of potentially high flow.|
