Silt Fence

Silt Fence Controls Silt and Sediment on Construction Sites

We have supplied high quality domestically engineered silt fence since our founding in 1988. We were proudly the first to introduce Orange Silt Fence to the Mid-Atlantic region and we continue to bring about change and innovation in the erosion control industry every year.

Silt Fence is used on just about every construction site but every job has its own requirements. It is most commonly installed with wood posts however steel stakes and galvanized line posts are also great options. Wire products including chain link, welded wire, and hog wire add reinforcement in sensitive areas.
