Polytex® Silt Fence

Polytex® Silt Fence

Silt fences are constructed from our high strength woven geotextiles, normally Polytex 115 pre-slit to 0.6m wide. The fence is constructed by stretching and securing the fabric to vertical posts or standards, spaced at 2.5m centres. About 150mm of the bottom edge is tucked and compacted into an anchor trench. This system was extremely successful in retaining topsoil on the Cape Mountains after the devastating bush fires in 2000.
