PP Woven Silt Fence, also known as polypropylene woven silt fence, is a type of silt fence that is commonly used on construction sites and other areas where sediment control is needed. It is made from a woven polypropylene fabric that is stretched between posts and staked into the ground. This type of silt fence is known for its strength, durability, and resistance to tearing.
One of the main advantages of PP Woven Silt Fence is its strength. The woven polypropylene fabric is much stronger than traditional filter fabrics or geotextiles, making it less likely to tear or become damaged during installation or use. This is particularly important in areas with high wind or heavy rainfall, where traditional silt fences may fail.
Another advantage of PP Woven Silt Fence is its durability. The woven polypropylene fabric is resistant to UV rays, meaning it will not degrade or become brittle over time. This makes it a long-lasting solution for sediment control, and it will require less maintenance and replacement than traditional silt fences.
PP Woven Silt Fence is also very effective at sediment control. The woven fabric has a high filtration rate, meaning it can effectively filter out sediment particles and prevent them from entering nearby waterways or other sensitive areas. The woven fabric also has a high permeability rate, meaning it allows water to pass through while trapping sediment particles.
Installation of PP Woven Silt Fence is relatively simple and straightforward. The fabric is stretched between posts and staked into the ground, with a slope of 1.5:1 or 2:1. The posts are typically made from wood or steel, depending on the location and the specific needs of the site.
