The DOT Type III curtain is designed to withstand the most intense of conditions. With all of the added stability as the Type II curtain plus an additional weatherline top cable underneath the float, this curtain is ready for whatever current and conditions you put it through. Also available on the Type III is the option to have a high-tenacity, monofilament polypropylene woven geotextile sewn into the skirt to allow for water to pass through, but stop all silt and sediment from going with it.

The DOT Type II consists of the same specification as the Type I curtain, with the inclusion of 18oz fabric. In addition to these specs, the Type II turbidity curtain has ASTM aluminum couplers (either Slide or Quick Latch) fit to the connection points of the floats and also has a 5/16″ weatherline top cable for additional tensile strength.

The DOT Type I curtain is the base model from which the other three build on. It consists of 18oz, 22oz, or 24oz PVC coated fabric, a solid closed cell foam float, skirt length made to fit your job requirements, and a galvanized chain ballast. There is a strip of 2″ webbing that runs along the length of the skirt on both ends that is punched with #4 grommets every 6″. It is common to use nylon rope to tie this together, ACME also offers toggle pins as an option for this.
