Floating Silt Barrier Towing Accessories
The tow bridle is one of several marine accessories designed to help with the installation and deployment of a floating boom or silt curtain. Equipped to help safely tow the turbidity curtain out into position, these bridles feature a small flotation device and two attachment points to help distribute weight evenly across the silt barrier.
Depending on the size of the boom, these towing materials are available in small, medium, large, and heavy duty model options. See how you can protect your floating boom or turbididty curtain with Boom Barrier Accessories (PDF).
Towing Bridle Installation
Prior to deployment, the connector on the towing bridle should be mated to the end connector on the containment boom. Once mated, the connection can be secured using a toggle pin. Typical shackles on these bridles are equipped to accept a line up to 3/4" in diameter.
The picture below shows the typical attachment of a tow bridle to a floating barrier or boom. As seen below, this product is attached at two points to help distribute the weight of the product across the entire depth or width of the barrier.
