Our silt curtains act as an impenetrable barrier to protect wildlife from water contamination
During marine construction silt and sediment can cause turbidity in the water, turbidity is measured by the quality of the water. Silt curtains also known as turbidity curtains are used to control this and create a barrier to stop the spread of this contamination. When construction is taking place in or around waters it is imperative that steps are put in place to prevent any spread of turbidity due to legislation.
Providing a long-lasting, entirely bespoke silt curtain solution
Cunningham Covers creates made-to-measure silt curtains that provide uncompromising strength and support. Also known as a turbidity curtain, flotation curtain or silt screen, 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.
