Permanent Containment Boom

Permanent Boom For Long-Term Debris Control

permanent floating boom DeployedThe Permanent Containment Boom is a heavy-duty floating barrier designed for long-term control of aquatic plants, debris, and litter. Permanent booms are highly effective in controlling, containing, or excluding many forms of floating debris. This boom also presents significant cost savings due to their long field-use life. Permanent booms tend to last around 6 times longer in the field than other styles.

Our permanent boom is heavy duty and able to withstand extended use in many water areas. It is commonly used in marinas, ports, naval yards, repair areas, docks, and open ocean.
