SILT FENCE...

SILT FENCE
Silt fence is a very economical and efficient way of containing silt runoff from a site. The correct installation is crucial in the effectiveness of the silt fence system. We offer the installation of various types of silt fence. The most common color for silt fence is black but we offer silt fence in orange as well and can be used in any of the applications below. The following are the most common types used but we can build any type that is specified in your plans for your project.

“Typical Silt Fence” – This silt fence is 3’ in height and is always trenched into the ground -/+ 6”. It will be supported by 1”x1”x4’ hardwood stakes at 8’ o.c. Stakes spacing will be closer when a high flow area might be present on site. The silt fence is securely attached to stakes with ½” staples in each stake. In some cases, the 1”x1” hardwood stakes are replaced with 2”x2” hardwood stakes to make this fencing system even stronger.



“Plastic Mesh Supported Silt Fence”(Mesh Fence) – This silt fence is basically the same as the “Typical Silt Fence” but has a heavy duty plastic support mesh on the back of the fence. The plastic mesh is also stapled to the same stakes as the silt fence itself. This support mesh offers more strength and support to the silt fence.

“Wire backed Silt Fence” – This silt fence is also trenched 6” and is usually supported by 2”x2”x4’ hardwood stakes at 8’ o.c. The fence is backed with a wire mesh netting that is 36” in height and is similar to chicken wire. The silt fence and wire are attached to stakes with ½” staples and 2-3” round galvanized stress plates. The plates are fastened to the stakes with 1 ½” screws to secure the wire and silt fence fabric to the stakes.

“Heavy duty Wire-backed Silt Fence” (FX Fence) – This is a very rugged and long lasting silt fence system. We use a heavy duty wire mesh backing that is 39” in height and is supported by 2”x2”x5’ hardwood stakes which are generally spaced at 8’ o.c. The heavy duty wire and silt fence are trenched 6” and are attached to the stakes with ½” staples and 3-3” round galvanized stress plates on each stake. The plates are fastened to the stakes with 1 ½” screws to securely hold the silt fence fabric and wire to the stakes. This is a great system for a long duration project because it requires little to no maintenance to be done and does not biodegrade in a short time.
