Terrastop™ Premium Silt Fence is a special, high quality, permeable, technical filter fabric for stormwater surface runoff pollution management. Terrastop™ can be installed as an entrenched vertical entrapment fence, and is designed to intercept and detain stormwater run-off, trapping harmful silt through settlement and filtration before it leaves the site.
Many construction, forestry and farming activities result in disturbed or bare ground that is vulnerable to weather erosion. The silt laden run-off, plus site debris and other pollutants, often contaminates surrounding land, rivers, streams, lakes and drains – resulting in significant environmental diffuse pollution and potentially costly fines.
The Silt Fence also known as “filter fence” protects water quality in nearby streams, rivers, lakes and seas from sediment (lose soil) in stormwater run-off areas, trapping harmful silt through settlement and filtration before it leaves the site. Pollution can also be caused from disturbed bare ground that is vulnerable to weather erosion.
Strong, gusting winds and heavy rainfall increases the risk of Silt pollution into waterways on sites. SSI Environmental provide Terrastop Premium Silt Fence – let’s keep all waterways clear!
