Control Sediment on Construction Sites
Silt Fence is a temporary sediment barrier that controls erosion, prevents construction related runoff from polluting bodies of water, and establishes perimeter control on construction sites.
Most temporary fences are manufactured from woven geotextile fabrics, specifically slit films. Some specialty fences, however, are manufactured from nonwoven geotextiles. What is important is that the fabric filters sediment laden runoff so that clean water flows through the fence and sediment is retained.
Types of Silt Fence
States, municipalities and engineers specify a variety of temporary fences. That’s why we supply you with so many options.
At Colonial Construction Materials you will find Silt Fence for private, commercial and DOT construction projects.
We also manufacture several kits including Pre-Attached Silt Fence and the Super Silt Fence Kit.
Commercial and DOT
Explore our temporary fence fabrics for DOT, Commercial and private projects.
These specialty fences were designed with strength and delineation in mind.
We manufacture all-in-one silt fence kits that include posts, stakes and fabric.
Commercial and DOT Fabrics
This selection of fabrics is field tested and approved for sediment control. Many of these fabrics are approved by Mid-Atlantic state Departments of Transportation because of their superior test results.
W100 Silt Fence is a black woven slit film fence. This fence has excellent performance standards for separation which is why it is approved for use by so many state Departments of Transportation.
400EO Silt Fence
400EO Silt Fence (TPG400EOMM) is a monofilament fence engineered for high flow and longevity. The monofilament yarns offer improved filtration when compared to slit films (standard temporary fence) that can become clogged when filtering his volumes of runoff.
400EOSF has a 2″ delineation line at the top and a burial line at the bottom.
Black Commercial Silt Fence
Black Commercial Silt Fence is supplied to contractors on commercial projects that don’t require a fabric that meets the Department of Transportation’s specifications.
Orange Commercial Silt Fence
Some contractors and counties prefer Orange Temporary Fence instead of Black. Orange Silt Fence has greater visibility than black fence. Just like the black alternative, both fences can be used on private or commercial construction projects.
Super Silt Fence Fabric
Super Silt Fence is a chain link reinforced temporary fence that is installed in sensitive areas, sites that need reinforcement, and long term projects.
77SF is another DOT grade Silt Fence. It is specified for Silt Fence by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and many other state DOTs. It is also a popular choice for private projects.
200 x 200 Silt Fence
200 x 200 Silt Fence Fabric is a high strength fabric that is specified by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT).
We primarily supply 200 x 200 pre-attached with Oak Stakes but it can be purchased as fabric only upon request.

If you only need a limited quantity of Silt Fence consider trying a kit that has stakes and fabric included. Kits are best suited for small installations. When you purchase a kit, you get an exact quantity of fence and stakes which means no leftover rolls of fabric or unused bundles of stakes.
Pre-Attached Silt Fence
We fabricate Pre-Attached Silt Fence in house by attaching Oak Stakes to the fabric at standard spacing increments.
Pre-Attached is offered in multiple sizes, colors and fabrics.
