containment-boomSuper Swamp Containment Boom

The Super Swamp Containment Boom is a breeze to transport and store because it is so lightweight and compact. Usually stored in small containers so it can quickly be placed in the back of trucks for instant deployment. This boom is ideal for shallow waters such as streams, canals and ditches.

The polyethylene (closed cell type), along with the round foam flotation blocks and vinyl-coated skirting create an effective, non-absorbent barrier that blocks oil, trash, and debris above the water.

The skirting barrier that hangs below the water line works to keep pollutants from going under the containment boom. The steel chain is galvanized and serves to weight down the boom and make it rigid at the same time.

The Super Swamp Containment Boom is very cost effective and manufactured with top quality fully welded 22 oz. PVC material. UV resistant and reinforced seams to ensure you will get many years of service from the booms.

You can use a pressure washer and a good detergent to clean the boom after each use.

Features marine grade aluminum slide connectors and toggle pins so you can create longer lengths without worrying about oil or trash getting through the boom. This Containment Boom is available in 25 foot, 50 foot and 100 foot lengths.
