River Containment Boom

River Containment Boom

Texas Boom offers a unique oil containment boom designed specifically for use in waterways where strong currents or tides are prevalent. The skirt on the River Boom is vented, allowing for some of the current to pass through the skirt to reduce the pressure on the boom. In addition, an additional ballast chain is added to strengthen the boom and provide additional ballast to keep the skirt positioned vertically. These design features will prolong the life of the boom and make it easier to keep the boom located correctly.  This type oil containment boom features semi-flexible internal foam floats and flexible fabric draft skirts that are suspended below the surface.  50 ft and 100 ft sections are in stock, and custom orders are available upon request.
