Installation

Silt Fence  and Super Silt Fence can be supplied with a full complement of silt fence accessories including Steel Y Posts, 2.5mm tensioning wire and safety caps. Silt Fences are typically installed on earthworks sites at the downstream boundary or immediately downstream of soil stockpiles.

The installation of silt fences follows local sediment control guidelines where supporting post spacing is typically no more than 2m apart and the silt fence extends to a height of 600mm above ground. Geofabrics supplied accessories provide support to the silt fence to meet the local council requirements. In all cases regular maintenance of silt fences is required which includes inspections after storms and removal of excessive silt deposits.
