Silt Fence

Silt Fence

For decades, Colonial Construction Materials has provided domestically engineered silt fence that provides the base for the most common erosion control measures. 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 usually installed with wood posts but steel or galvanized line posts can be used as well. Chain link, welded wire, and hog wire can also be used to add strength and protection.

We supply shovels, tie wire, staples and staple guns to make your silt fence installation quick and easy.
