Top quality closed-cell polyethylene foam flotation blocks and vinyl-coated skirting, which are both non-absorbent barriers, will effectively block oil, trash and debris. If properly maintained our durable oil booms will give you many years of service. The skirting barrier hangs below the water line 12 inches to keep pollutants from creeping under the spill containment boom.

A galvanized steel chain along the bottom adds weight and rigidity to the draft of the containment boom. The Simplex is an inexpensive boom manufactured in fully welded 22 oz. PVC material. The vinyl-coated polyester is resistant to UV rays.

Included are marine grade connectors that easily slide together and are made of aluminum. Toggle pins provide the needed strength to create longer lengths and to eliminate weak spots. The Oil Booms available in 50 foot and 100 foot lengths.

Oil booms come in many different sizes and styles. If you do not see the oil booms you need? Have a specific need? Contact us toll free at (800)869-9633 or by email. To see our other non-absorbent oil booms .
