FlowMasta - A Silt Curtain for Any Application

Whatever the project, if you need to control sediment suspended in water you need a silt curtain.  And from the smallest seawall to the largest dredging project our FlowMasta curtains have been used with unrivalled success.

For a sheltered water application our Contractor's Curtain is ideal.  Only quality materials are used, and the curtain is manufactured with durability in mind.  This curtain is used all over Australia on road and bridge projects, dredge projects, pier and seawall projects, remediation projects and more.  Some projects that have used this curtain include:

  • BHP Steelworks site remediation, Newcastle NSW
  • Hunter Expressway project, Hunter Region NSW
  • Bulk Water Alliance upgrading Canberra's water supply, Canberra Region ACT

FlowMasta heavy duty curtains are typically used for projects in high-profile or sensitive areas, or where the curtain will be subjected to harsh or even extreme conditions.  Again the curtain is manufactured from only quality materials with durability in mind; however our heavy duty curtain specifications are changed to suit the unique conditions of each project.  This means our customers sleep easy at night, knowing the curtain will be doing its job, no matter what the conditions are.

Projects that have relied on these curtains include:

  • Elizabeth Quay, Perth WA
  • Port Botany Expansion, Sydney NSW
  • Sydney Desalination Plant, Sydney NSW

When considering silt curtains, remember what you pay to buy won't necessarily be your total cost of ownership.  Assembly and installation can be a nightmare if curtain is supplied unassembled.  Project downtime, repair or replacement expenses, and litigation are just some of the possible costs involved with curtain failure.  However FlowMasta curtains are supplied ready to install, even in pre-configured bundles of different lengths if required, and if required can be modified to suit your project requirements.  This helps to minimise installation time and the likelihood of curtain failure.

All FlowMasta curtains have been designed by our marine engineer (DipAppSci, MEngSci) who has over 30 years in the industry.  This means your confidence in FlowMasta curtains will not be misplaced they have even been used successfully when alternative products have failed!  So for a durable, cost-effective silt curtain, try our Flowmasta product.
