SALT WATER AREAS: It is recommended that all salt water booms be made with the following components:

  1. Stainless Steel Cables
  2. Zinc Anodes

These components are more robust in design and equipped for extended salt water use. If this is a short term project and cost is an issue, standard galvanized steel components can be used for a period up to 1 year.

Marine Accessories

anchor kitHaving the right accessories can be essential to effectively installing, deploying and using your boom. For moving water locations (areas with tides, currents, high winds, waves), it is commonly recommended that booms be anchored throughout the length of the boom to help keep the boom in place. Anchor positioning can help to redistribute where the load falls on the curtain, prevent too much pressure from being placed at any one point.
