River Phoenix 250 & 480 – Foam Buoyancy PVC Fence Booms


The River boom is deal for emergency response use in canals, streams, rivers and lagoons. The light weight of the River Phoenix containment boom allows for easy transportation, deployment and recovery. The boom length is simply extended with an innovative boom to boom connecting system that requires no tools. This lightweight, highly portable boom is the obvious choice for holding on site at all times along with Oilsorb-Ultra absorbents. The first-aid for oil spills, they could well prevent an accident becoming a disaster. Extremely popular with the Water Authorities and Environment Agencies, the River Phoenix protects inland and industrial waterways reliably and cost effectively.


Segmented boom manufactured from high frequency welded 750 g/m2 PVC coated nylon fabric giving durable and excellent high wear and abrasion resistance. Foam buoyancy by sealed closed cell foam panels giving immediate readiness for use. Ballast is provided by galvanised chain. Joining booms is achieved using plastic cleats, which require no tools or detached fixings and cannot corrode. This produces a very stable, self righting boom which zigzags neatly for storing.
