Turbidity Curtain (Floating silt fence)
A turbidity curtain, also commonly referred to as a turbidity barrier, silt barrier or a silt curtain, is used to contain turbidity (sediment and silt) that is stirred up by construction activities taking place in or near bodies of water, dredging operations and rainwater runoff. ABASCO floating turbidity curtains have a series of continuous flotation elements along its top and a fabric skirt hanging below the floats. The skirt is typically long enough to be within one foot of the bottom and can be used to contain various turbidity. Turbidity curtains & silt curtains are usually made in lengths of 25, 50 or 100 ft. and those section are joined to make one continuous containment barrier that encloses a worksite. These silt curtains also come in three different types, which are all dependent on different applications and environmental variables. Our turbidity control specialists will help you conform to all regulations and requirements that might apply to your project, including the Clean Water Act, National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and state (DOT) and local regulations.

Get Tough! With Heavy Duty, Medium Duty and Light Duty posts in the classic Studded Tee design from Chicago Heights Steel. Get outstanding strength characteristics for the toughest fencing applications on the farm, at commercial or industrial sites, for yards and gardens at home.
What makes a tough competitor?
These Studded Tee posts are made from rail steel. Like the rails that support and flex under the weight of a train, our posts have the same combination of strength and resiliency – guaranteeing a minimum yield point of 50,000 PSI and an ultimate tensile strength greater than 80,000 PSI.
Posts are made weather resistant by an industrial quality finish coat of Green or Orange paint (other colors upon request). Some post tops include an accent color and can also be reflectorized as a special order.
Posts are packaged five to a bundle with a 200-piece master bundle.
Dewatering Bags are designed to trap silt, sand, and other sediment fines from construction sites before they can do damage to the environment; and to assist the contractor with an economical means of avoiding the costly cleanup of storm water systems. As water is pumped through the bag, it captures most of the sediment resulting in the discharge of clear to near-clear water. When full, dewatering bags can be disposed of as a solid waste; cut open and mixed with the on-site soil and seeded; or otherwise directed by the site engineer. All our dewatering bags are constructed using a double-needle J-seam, and incorporate a fabric flange large enough to accommodate up to a 6″ discharge hose using the attached heavy-duty straps.
All Weather Washout
Our new All-Weather Washout is designed to stand up to the toughest of environments while maintaining its portability, ease of setup, and cost effectiveness. It is made from heavy-duty, woven poly polypropylene that shrugs off the worst of climates but is still light weight and durable. It includes 5 to 1 safety rated lifting straps and folds flat for easy storage. A 6’x6’ detached rain fly is available if desired, which can be used with the All-Weather and Corrugated Washouts.
It is designed to be a portable, EPA-friendly solution for containment of hazardous construction site washout material such as: concrete sediment, paint, drywall mud, stucco, and mortar. At a job site, the last thing you want to worry about is setting up a complicated washout for equipment and tools. Our All-Weather Washout, like our Corrugated Washout, is simple to deploy but can sit on your job site through the duration of your project and the worst weather you can encounter. Its patent pending folding design allows it to be stored flat in the back of a pickup truck or strapped to the side of a mixer or pump truck.
Floc Roll and Floc Tabs
Floc Roll – Polyacrylamide Sediment Removal Log
Floc Roll should be placed at the upper end of a drainage channel or as close as possible to active earth moving activities and should be attached to a stake in the center of the channel system where flow starts to concentrate. Floc Roll can easily be transferred to different locations as site conditions change. Construction of missing weirs may be required in areas with short ditch lines, swelling clays, heavy particle concentrations, or steep slopes.
Active ingredient: 50% Polyacrylamide
4-10 lb Rolls per Box
Floc Roll and Floc Tabs are manufactured with a blend of polyacrylamides that are designed for water clarification and sediment control.
Floc Roll and Floc Tabs flocculate sediment being transported by storm, agricultural or effluent water, significantly reducing turbidity and pollutant loading.
