Barrier and Boom Accessories
Anchor Kits, Buoys, Lights, and Tow Bridles
Successfully deploy and install your barriers using GEI Works marine boom accessories. These essential tools help with ease of towing, deploying, and maintenance. GEI Works marine-grade accessories also stabilize the boom or barrier, helping to keep your floating boom securely in place.
Depending on your project and specific requirements, different boom and turbidity curtain accessories are essential to help install, tow, and protect the barrier. See below for more information and specs on typical silt barrier and boom accessories like:
- Tow Bridles
- Navigational Marker Lights
- Tidal Compensators
- Anchor Kits (Anchor, Painter Rope, Chain and Buoy)
Boom accessories can include several different components to help deploy, install, and adjust your barrier. Designed for several different boom types, these accessories have been frequently used with debris booms, oil containment booms, and turbidity curtains. Using boom and turbidity curtain accessories with your applications will help products function at full efficiency while also protecting your investment.

Anchor Kits and Buoys
Without proper anchoring your boom or barrier will fail. GEI Works offers pre-assembled Anchor Kits, which are necessary for any floating barrier. Anchoring is especially important in moving water conditions, including: Type 2 and Type 3 Turbidity Curtains, Open Water Oil Booms, River Debris Booms, and more.
Our inflatable Buoys can be used to demarcate turbidity curtains while dredging, marking oil containment boom during oil spill recovery, or simply on a debris barrier where marine traffic is present.
Marker Lights help to increase visibility of floating boom in any given location. It includes a buoy, light, and pole, and floats in the water next to the boom. Most marine based projects will require some form of navigational aid or warning to ensure you are in USCG compliance.
Tow Bridles are a helpful boom accessory for deploying a floating barrier. Tow Bridles are a small device connected to both the boom or barrier and the tow boat. Rather than pulling at the boat from a single position, tow bridles redistribute the load so that the boat pulls at various portions of the turbidity curtain.
|Medium||18 in. (for 24 in. boom or less)|
|Large||24 in. (for 25in. boom or more)|
|HD||24 in. Heavy Duty|
|Extra HD||36 in. Heavy Duty|
A Tidal Compensator allows barriers and booms to adjust to changing tides or water heights. It will be connected directly to both a vertical structure and the boom or barrier. As water levels change, the tidal compensator will move up and down bringing the barrier with it.
For exceptionally rough conditions, consider the HD Tidal Compensator.
