Air Booms

Introducing Emtez air booms – engineered with precision using high-quality PVC-coated polyester fabric. This robust and lightweight material boasts exceptional resistance to abrasion, wear, atmospheric effects, hydrocarbons, chemicals, and detergents.

Designed for deployment in exposed coasts and open seas, our barriers feature cylindrical floats and a ballast chain, ensuring outstanding buoyancy and adaptability to wave-prone waters. Crafted in 25-meter sections, each segment comprises five independent 5-meter flotation chambers, shielded by durable outer fabric.

The external positioning of easily accessible filling valves enhances operational efficiency, while Emtez barriers seamlessly connect through a marine-resistant, ASTM-type extruded aluminium quick connection mechanism. Experience superior marine pollution containment with Emtez – where technical excellence meets environmental protection.
