Floating Debris Boom

debris boomHere you will find floating debris boom specifications for our standard floating barriers. Boom float sizes, components and lengths will vary depending on your site conditions, water pollution type and water conditions. Stronger flows may require tension cables, while extended lengths may require a higher foam.

The standard debris boom is suitable for most floating trash and debris including aquatic plants, plastic bags, debris, leaves, small branches, Styrofoam and more. For higher strength requirements (such as ice or logs) different containment barriers may be required.
