Siltsack - Type C (includes adjustable frame)
The Type C Siltsack is the newest addition to the Siltsack family. It offers the same permeable geotextile as a high-flow Siltsack but features an adjustable frame to fit most grates. This unique new design allows for quicker installation and the ability to be reused over multiple grate sizes. Like our other silt sacks, the Type C is a cost-effective temporary catch basin filter that removes sediment, trash and debris from entering a catch basin.
Routine inspection of a Siltsack’s collected sediment level is important to prevent “ponding” around storm drains.
A Siltsack can be emptied and re-used for the life of the construction project if well maintained.
