Cirtex® SiltFence is a high quality UV stabilised woven polypropylene silt control fabric used to prevent silt runoff entering our waterways.
SiltFence is a requirement to be used around construction and earthworks sites to prevent the silt running off the construction zone in an uncontrolled manner, polluting our waterways. SiltFence meets the requirements of Local Authorities for a primary barrier against site runoff.
Cirtex SiltFence is manufactured from a robust UV stabilised yarn, providing a strong and stable product that will last in the harsh conditions we find here in New Zealand. This ensures that there is no premature failure on projects sites resulting in costly contamination of surrounding properties and waterways.
