Small Boom with Big Impact
Bigger isn't always better. Sometimes our customers need a custom sized boom to meet a specific purpose. Depending on the application and conditions, smaller containment boom can be even more effective than larger sized models. We will profile this particular application in more detail upon completion of the installation, but we wanted to highlight Texas Boom Company's ability to deliver products to a customer's exact specifications.
In this particular case, a three inch freeboard is combined with a three inch draft to form a containment boom with six inches of total height. The customer also requested the boom in all black fabric. Because of the smaller size and installation, the customer also requested no connectors, making this particular product a hybrid between a conventional containment boom and a Type I turbidity curtain. The sections of custom containment boom are attached with stainless steel nuts and bolts and galvanized shackles. The shackles provide sturdy anchor points on the boom as well as attaching the sections together at the bottom pair of grommets.
If you have a need for a specific design for containment boom that may not be met by our standard configurations, don't hesitate to request a quote. If you can provide us with a description, Texas Boom Company will quickly quote the product and deliver the finished product shortly after receipt of order. Dimensions, floatation, tension cables, ballast chain size and weight, connectors, labeling, and color are just some of the design components we can modify to meet your needs.
