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.

Include the size and fabric as well as your design preference. We’ll follow up with a request for your logo.

We’ll provide you with a plate proof and a price quote.

After you approve the proof and quote, we’ll order your plate.

There is a one-time plate set up fee before we print your fence. This fee covers digitizing your proof and the production of your custom silt fence plate.

Logo silt fence is printed in our Oilville warehouse on a master roll (9000+ linear feet). For that reason, logo orders must be for full pallet quantities. A pallet of 300′ rolls typically results in 33 rolls of logo silt fence.

All-in-One Kits

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.
