Wire Back Silt Fence


Wire Back Silt Fence

Wire Back Silt Fence is a temporary sediment barrier made of porous polypropylene filter fabric and is designed to restrict the loss of loose soil and retain sediment in place from disturbed land, such as a construction site. Silt Fences are often installed as perimeter controls and typically used in combination with sediment basins or sediment traps as well as erosion controls.


Wire Back Silt Fence allows water to filter efficiently into the ecosystem until the activities disturbing the land are sufficiently completed, to allow re-vegetation and permanent soil stabilization. The silt fence fabric ponds sediment-laden storm water runoff, causing sediment to be retained by the settling processes. It is held up by wooden or metal posts driven into the ground, so it is inexpensive and relatively easy to remove. Construction silt fences function in a manner like a sedimentation basin in which water is allowed to filter through the fabric while suspended silt particles settle to the ground.

Keeping the soil on a construction site, rather than letting it be washed off into natural water bodies prevents the degradation of aquatic habitats and siltation of harbor channels. Preventing soil wash off onto roads, which readily transports it to storm sewers, avoids having sewers clogged with sediment. The cost of installing silt fence on a watershed’s construction site is considerably less than the costs associated with losing aquatic species, dredging navigation channels, and cleaning sediment out of municipal storm sewers.

We supply the wooden stakes and metal T-posts Y-posts and ties to secure the wire back silt fence in place.

Wire Back Silt Fence for sediment control consists of a high-quality woven geotextile with ultraviolet stabilizers to resist degradation caused by exposure to sunlight. Wire Backed Silt Fence has filter fabric attached to wire mesh for added support. The most common silt fence fabric is 70 gram and 100 gram and the wire is usually 14 gauge or 12.5 gauge wire with a 2"x 4" or 4"x 4" wire size opening.
