EQUIPMENT

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.
