Oil Containment Boom
Heavy Duty Floating Barriers for Oil Spill Containment
Oil containment booms are high strength floating barriers used during the containment and cleanup of oil in calm water, moving water and open water areas. Made with marine grade components and oil-rated fabrics, these containment booms are able to float in the water and contain oil while spill recovery is underway. Implementation of an oil boom after a spill has helped to effectively contain oil to a spill site and prevent further contamination in a water area.
Oil booms are constructed with an impermeable PVC material and short bottom skirt. Depending on the conditions in your area, booms may include tension cables for added strength and stability.
