Curtain Booms

Introducing Emtez Curtain Booms (also know as PVC fence booms or Spill containment barriers), which are designed for efficient water management in inland and sheltered environments. Boasting a high buoyancy-to-weight ratio, these barriers exhibit excellent responsiveness to wave action, making them particularly suited for deployment in harbours.

Constructed with internal cylindrical floats, these booms achieve superior buoyancy. The PVC-based skirt, complemented by a ballast chain, enhances stability and minimises sway, ensuring optimal performance in the presence of water oscillations.


Components of a Curtain Boom

Our curtain booms offer exceptional UV resistance and chemical resilience, specifically designed to withstand acids, alkalis, solvents, and hydrocarbons. Customisation options include different sizes and material types such as Polyurethane (PU) and Neoprene.

Engineered for deployment in sheltered or tranquil waters, these Curtain Booms provide technical efficiency for a variety of aquatic conditions. Explore the technical prowess of our barriers and elevate your water management strategies with precision and reliability.
