Contractor Grade Silt Fence
(Part Number 14987)

Nearly 70% of all construction jobs that require silt fence do not specify the type of fence that must be used. Save money by using superior quality non-spec contractors grade silt fence:

  • Economical 36" or 24" width silt
    fabrics (MISF 180)
  • 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" (Nominal) hardwood stakes
  • Stakes spaced every 10' (10' centers)
  • 11 stakes per 100' fabric
    If you’re stocking a fence with specs other than these for non-spec jobs, your probably paying too much!
*Easy Silt Fence Installation Tip
Silt fence is more durable and resistant to wind damage if each post is twisted 180° during installation. This wraps each post with silt fence fabric on both sides, reducing the likelihood of the fabric tearing away from the post in a high wind situation.
