S-Fence is a patented high performing, low total cost alternative to silt fence. It reduces sedimentation and provides erosion control on or around construction sites. S-Fence is an important part of a comprehensive best management practice system for soil stabilization after site grading and excavation activities. Unlike traditional silt fence, S-Fence is designed to allow water flow-through and significantly reduces water velocity to reduce erosive energy while at the same time provides particle filtering. S-Fence stands up to wind, UV exposure and will last many years. It is highly reusable. It is made from durable and recyclable HDPE.
S-Fence is a more effective and lower total cost alternative to traditional silt fence. S-Fence is installed around job site perimeters or at the base of slopes to contain and control sediment during storm events. S-Fence is available in three sizes: 10” for the greatest majority of requirements and 14” and 20" for low areas or areas of concentrated flow.
The integrated filter is extruded and controlled to precise dimensions. Aperture, percent-open-area and thickness of the filter fabric are key components of filter performance. The outer jacket is made from recycled High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which has outstanding outdoor durability characterstics. S-Fence performs for many years for long projects or can be reused. It is much easier to install and remove than silt fence. It requires very little maintenance because wind driven knockdowns and storm driven washouts rarely occur.
S-Fence works differently than silt fence. It allows water to flow through, slows and spreads. Head pressure from ponded water causes havoc with silt fence installations. Not so with S-Fence. With its flow-through characteristics, S-Fence does not need to be as tall as silt fence.
