Permanent Booms

Introducing our resilient and durable permanent containment booms (also know as permanent containment barriers), designed for extended deployment in maritime environments. Crafted with engineering excellence, this boom boasts robustness and longevity. The rigid foam-filled floats, securely attached to the naturally rigid skirt, ensure upright stability in the water, while a metal chain provides essential ballast at the bottom edge.

Carefully selected materials and advanced construction techniques guarantee not only durability but also an aesthetically appealing solution for long-term use in marine environments.

The double layer of PVC-coated polyester with UV treatment shields against sun-induced degradation and biofouling, ensuring prolonged structural integrity in ports and marinas.
