Quickly confine spills, ice and debris on fast, choppy waters with a highly effective Containment Boom. Our heavy-duty non-absorbent Containment Boom floats to keep oil from spreading into or out of a contained area while the skirt hangs below the surface to help prevent spills from creeping underneath. Containment Booms come with 3 different heights to match the expected water turbidity and keep oils and contaminants contained.
Containment Booms are built with an internal foam float, which forms a barrier against oil, ice, flotsam and debris above the surface, while tension cable adds strength and rigidity. Containment Booms use a flexible PVC skirt below the water surface to keep pollutants from escaping; ballast chain adds weight to help keep skirt taut. Extra-heavy hinge points provide stability, float integrity and durability in rough wave conditions to the Containment Boom, and connect the Booms together to form any length needed across the water.
Containment Booms are quick and easy to deploy, even using a small boat with outboard motor. Rugged, heavy-duty Boom is ideal in rivers, docks, bays, creeks, large lakes, coastal areas, API separators, harbors and other areas with fast, choppy flow.
