Avoid Project Delays and Wasted Money with Dependable Floating Type 1 and Type 2 Turbidity Curtains from Adiemas Services

During underwater construction, reclamation, dredging or excavation projects, silt and sediment containment are both of paramount concern. Having a turbidity curtain in place that can prevent contaminant from escaping into the neighbouring marine environment is essential for the protection of nearby ecosystems and water quality in general.

Unfortunately, many companies have dealt with inadequate or poorly designed environmental protections in the past. Silt curtains that are not sufficient to contain materials can lead to fines and other penalties from regulators.

Another big concern is time. Some turbidity curtains have sub-standard anchoring mechanisms, making it hard to keep the systems in place for the length of an underwater works project. In situations such as this, teams often end up chasing silt curtains around rather than doing the job they came to do. This issue is more than just an irritation. Indeed, it can lead to substantial delays, missed projects deadlines and unplanned expenses.

Adiemas Services Pty Ltd: A Dependable Source for Floating Turbidity Curtains

Teams that use turbidity curtains on a regular basis can rely on Adiemas Services Pty Ltd for reliable, high-quality products. We stock several types of floating turbidity curtains, ideal for varying wind speeds, wave patterns, tidal patterns, currents and more. Our goal is to help your team find a reliable silt curtain solution so that you can do your job without worrying about the curtain coming loose or turbidity getting through and contaminating other waters.

Finding the right sediment control solution for an underwater construction or dredging project can be exceedingly difficult. Much of this difficulty is thanks to the way companies market floating turbidity curtains in Australia.

Often, you will hear terms like ‘Type 1 turbidity curtain’ or ‘Type 2 turbidity curtain’ to describe different product levels. These distinctions—Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3—are derived from United States Department of Transportation and USACE guidelines. They rarely have exact, concrete meanings. Instead, they are somewhat generic descriptors meant to give an approximate idea of the kind of environmental conditions (wind, waves, current and tide) the curtain can withstand.

In other words, a Type 2 turbidity curtain is markedly stronger than a Type 1 turbidity curtain, but there is not a hard rule to follow when deciding between one or the other. This confusion can make it extremely difficult for companies in the marine construction industry to choose the right silt and sediment control methods.

At Adiemas Services, we are happy to help your team choose the right floating turbidity curtain. Based on the specific characteristics of your project, your worksite and the weather and water conditions at your site, we can help you pick out the ideal curtain for the job.

Call for Help with Your Turbidity Curtain Needs

An insufficient or poorly designed turbidity curtain will cause your team project delays, cost you money and lead you towards regulatory trouble. Just knowing the difference between Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 turbidity curtains will not guarantee that you get the right sediment control solution. Working with Adiemas Services to find the ideal floating turbidity curtain for your project, though, will help a lot.
