Silt Curtains

Silt Curtain for Soil Removal at Contaminated Land in Co. Cork

Cunningham Covers creates made-to-measure Silt & Turbidity Curtains that provide uncompromising strength and support. Also known as a silt or turbidity barriers, flotation curtain, silt screen or sargassum barrier, our curtains are reinforced through high frequency and hot air welding, bolting and riveting to ensure maximum durability in both calm water states and more forceful wind and water conditions. Our silt curtains are designed and manufactured to your exact specifications and can be delivered locally or shipped internationally.

Silt curtains, or turbidity curtains are used to control and contain disrupted waterborne sediment in waterways during work such as coastal or marine dredging, excavation, marine construction or repair, civil works and pile driving. This prevent stress on ecologically sensitive habitats and marine pollution during necessary construction and repair projects. Cunningham are proud to manufacture products that enable our clients to protect the environment and ensure the best possible water quality and clarity.

Silt & Turbidity Curtains for Dredging

Floating silt curtains are frequently used for sediment containment during dredging and water-related projects. The floating barriers on top the curtain allow the curtain to control silt both above and below the surface of the water.

Sargassum Barriers

The same application for silt curtains can be applied for use as Sargassum Barriers. Due to the materials flexibility, this can be easily moved to protect coastal areas during Sargassum (seaweed) season. It is also used for Phytoplankton Algae Curtains in the Aquaculture Industry.
