Offshore HD inflatable boom

Permanent Containment Booms are heavy-duty booms with high-density polyethylene floats. The boom is particularly robust and is made to give a particularly long service life in installations where booms are used frequently and on a permanent basis.

A boom with a heavy PU or PVC vertical barrier fabric and symmetrically placed foam-filled high-density polyethylene floats. The two halves of the floats are bolted together trapping the barrier fabric in between.

This gives rise to a particularly heavy-duty construction which is easy to maintain and repair on site. Most of the forces on the boom are absorbed by the ballast chain, which is shackled on to the lower part of the skirt. The ballast chain is connected between sections with “split-links” made from hot-dip galvanised steel.

Each section is fitted with marine grade aluminium ASTM connectors. Tools are not required to connect the sections together. Alternatively, Unicon or Norwegian type connectors may be delivered.
