Net Boom To Collect Leaves And Twigs
Question: I am looking for a net debris boom for a slow moving channel of water to collect leaves and twigs before they reach a spillway with a fine mesh screen. We need the boom for calm water conditions. It is an outlet channel for a small channel about 30 - 40 feet wide with a small lake behind it. The net size would likely need to be about 1 - 2 inch. I would doubt the waves get about 6 inch. This is a fresh water lake so a galvanized chain would work. Please provide a quote and availability for a boom with galvanized and stainless ballast chain. What size net is available on underneath the boom? What is the depth of the ballast chain when the boom is floating?
Answer: Thank you for contacting us! The specifications for your boom may vary depending specifically on you water conditions and available options. If you require a a net, the best option would be our Floating Trash Net Boom.
This boom features the following components:
- Top Flotation Device
- Bottom Floating Marine Treated Net
- Tension Cable
- Slide Connectors
- Lower Tension Member and Ballast Chain
Regarding your size and construction requirements, the net that is placed underneath the boom can be constructed to meet your exact specifications. We can custom build boom to fit your specific location and address your needs.
Lengths for these barriers are typically in sizes of either 50 or 100 feet. Depths may vary depending on your water flow and application. All nets should contain a bottom tension member and ballast chain to keep the unit in the upright position.
Additional Containment Boom Options:
In addition to this model with a bottom net, you might also consider one of our Standard Debris Booms. These models contain a short skirt (usually either 6 or 12 inches in depth) and a top flotation device. They have been used in a wide range of water conditions and may be better adapted to your specific containment requirements.
