Floating Barrier Accessories Details
Marine Anchor Kits
Marine anchor kits are a requirement for floating boom or silt curtain that is being installed in moving water or rough water conditions. Anchoring systems will correctly consider silt curtain design and installation for your unique job site conditions. Proper installation of turbidity curtain accessories like marine anchor kits and anchor systems will significantly reduce strain and redistribute weight across the floating turbidity curtain, maintaining containment in the install location and increasing the lifespan of the floating silt curtain. One Clarion's standard marine anchor kits come complete with an anchor, steel chain, polypropylene rope, and one buoy. For your turbidity control system, you can select from several different types of anchors depending on the riverbed or lake bottom at your location. Anchor systems include pyramid anchors, fluke anchors, mushroom style anchors, or navy style anchors. Need pricing? No problem! Simply call our knowledgeable team at 863-261-8388.
Buoys and Marker Lights
One Clarion buoys and marker lights ensure that your floating barrier is visible to marine traffic. Designed for commercial use, marker buoys are great for use in city harbors, small public marinas, and around boat docks. Marker buoys and lights are also useful for demarcation guides and mooring signals. Floating marker lights greatly increase the visibility of your floating turbidity curtain when it has been deployed. Marker lights come complete with the light, pole, and buoy so that it floats next to the floating barrier. One Clarion buoys and marker lights are designed to comply with most local and state regulations.
A turbidity accessory like the tow bridle helps with the deployment and installation of your turbidity control system, floating silt curtain, or boom. The tow bridle has been specifically designed to safely tow your turbidity fence into the install position. The bridle features a small flotation device and attaches in two points that help distribute the weight evenly across the silt curtain. The tow bridle is available in small, medium, large, and heavy-duty sizes depending on the silt curtain design and type of turbidity curtain.
One Clarion has designed reefing lines specially for use with our floating silt curtain. Turbidity curtain accessories like these allow you to adjust how deep the floating barrier is deployed depending on tidal conditions or the contours of the bottom where the silt curtain is being installed. The adjusting lines are perfect for locations with varying water depths. If you need help with your reefing lines and turbidity curtain installation, we can provide you with information and guidance.
One of the floating barriers accessories that is incredibly helpful in strong tidal conditions is the tidal compensator. The tidal compensator is designed as an adjustment system for floating silt curtain or boom because it self-adjusts as the tides change. The tidal compensator attaches to one end of your turbidity curtain and the other end is connected to an anchoring structure like a dock or pier. As the tide ebbs and flows, the side float automatically adjusts itself and the connector moves up or down on an I-Beam. This action helps keep your floating turbidity fence secure and functioning to its full potential. One Clarion offers the tidal compensator in two models: Standard and Heavy Duty depending on your location requirements.
