Every Heavy Duty containment boom is specifically designed and built in conjunction with the applications. Our floating debris containment booms are made in Australia and designed for Australian conditions.
They create containment barriers within their boundaries after being deployed. Containment booms, also known as ‘floating booms’ are installed prior to the beginning of a project and ensure the containment of free-floating liquid spills.
They can also be used as an integral component of spill response for oil spill management and oil containment. Containment booms can be accompanied by recovery equipment, high-speed boom reels, and storage systems as well as spill kits and silt curtains. They’re available in different shapes and sizes according to your application. If you are unsure of your requirements contact us today for more information

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use a boom in open water conditions?
How do I get them to site?
How do I move them around on the water?
It’s acceptable to tow floating booms with a vessel. Depending on the length of booms combined. A very small vessel can be used in sensitive areas and shallow draft conditions. We supply two bridles for towing longer lengths into position efficiently.
Often a land base point is established as a start point of the containment area. If you’re installing from a land point consider the way the boom will alter current flows once it’s in position. Try to run as much boom parallel with tidal forces as possible. If this isn’t possible consider increasing your anchoring system.
*For technical assistance call us. NEVER use a machine such as an excavator and bobcat to tension the boom.
