Our team has extensive experience designing curtains for applications you might not even know a Silt Curtain could be used for!
We’ve fabricated floating turbidity curtains for extreme environments like the open ocean, tropical tidal ranges, high-velocity winds and fast-flowing rivers. We’ve used special materials for acidic tailings dams. We’ve made curtains 20m deep. We’ll advise on anchoring. We are very familiar with the waterways around Australia. Our use of high-quality materials, attention to detail and workmanship excellence has resulted in Chatoyer leading the market in quality Silt Curtain fabrication. Chatoyer’s floating turbidity curtains have a reputation for reliable performance and durable construction.
Silt Curtains are generally required by marine service companies, construction companies, erosion and sediment control contractors, consultants, councils and state road authorities for the following types of projects:
Our popular designs are categorised into types we refer to as a Class. Each Class design is based on functionality that generally suits common applications and operating sea states. The range of turbidity curtains is made in 20m lengths. Multiple lengths are connected to cover the overall required span. Floating silt booms can be customised to suit specific project requirements such as project longevity, operating sea states and government regulations, to name a few. We specialise in custom and Class 3 heavy-duty Silt Curtains made to spec for harsh conditions, long-term deployment, extra deep skirts and special functionality for vessel traffic, shoreline approaches, tides and anchoring. For permanent or heavy-duty turbidity curtains, we offer a range of materials, floats, accessories and technical advice.
Chatoyer developed this simple categorisation to assist our clients in selecting an appropriate silt boom design. Below is a guide we use in consultation with clients illustrating our suggested options per waterway and the fundamentals of each design class.
Little to no tidal, wave and/or wind forces.
Example: lagoon, pond, stream
Moderate wind and/or water forces.
Example: river, calm harbour
Strong wind and water forces.
