Wire Back Silt Fence (100% DOT compliant)
Reinforced Silt Fence For Erosion Control!
Sandbaggy Wire Backed Silt Fence is great for controlling erosion on construction sites, agricultural areas, or any other area where sediment runoff is an issue. Also known as a reinforced silt fence, the wire backing on these types of silt fences provide more stability to the fence making it less likely to collapse or fail. Use wire back silt fences in areas with high flow rates, steep slopes, and windy conditions. They are a more long term alternative to regular silt fences.
Our wire backed silt fences are available in black and orange, come in a 4 ft x 100 ft roll, and are DOT compliant. We sell them at wholesale prices as low as $81 per roll.

How do you install a wire backed silt fence?
Here are the general steps to install a wire-backed silt fence:
- Determine the length of your silt fence and choose locations for your fence posts.
- Insert your fence posts into the ground, make sure they are secure and upright. We recommend using 5 ft T-posts.
- Unroll the wire-backed silt fence and attach it to the posts, using wire ties or clips.
- Ensure your fence is taut and properly aligned, if you need to further secure it use additional wire ties or clips.
- Install stakes along the top of the fence to keep it upright and prevent it from sagging.
- Lastly, you need to close off the bottom of your silt fence to prevent erosion and ensure proper drainage. A great way to do this is to add gravel to the bottom of the fence.
What is the life expectancy of silt fence?
Silt fences are a temporary erosion control barrier meant to last 6-12 months. Once the fence starts to break down or become clogged with sediment, it’s effectiveness starts to be reduced.
Can water go through a silt fence?
Silt fences are made to be water permeable. They slow down water runoff, trapping the sediments in the water, while allowing water to flow through. This makes them great for filtration and drainage applications.
Why are silt fences used for erosion control?
Silt fences are used for erosion control because they are easy to install and take down, as well as an economical choice. Because they are able to filter sediments out while allowing water to pass through, they can help prevent sediment from entering nearby waterways.
Can these be installed with Silt Fence Installer Machines?
Yes, Sandbaggy Wire Back Silt Fence can be easily installed with silt fence installer machines, such as Blue Diamond Silt Fence Installer Attachment.
