Texas Boom Company is a manufacturer of oil spill containment boom, silt curtains, turbidity barriers, secondary containment berms, and collapsible fabric bladder tanks. In addition, Texas Boom Company offers custom fabrication of products constructed of industrial-grade fabrics. These fabrics are typically vinyl-coated fabrics or urethane fabrics. All manufacturing is performed in our Houston, Texas facility by our team highly skilled craftsmen. TBC has been manufacturing these products since 1986, and we stand behind our work.
Manufacturing these products requires a number of processes. As an example, to manufacture oil spill containment boom, there are a number of steps involved to deliver a durable, well-built product. High-quality closed-cell foam in sheet form is rolled into logs or cut to length from extruded foam logs. PVC coated fabric is cut to width in roll form and either RF welded or heat sealed to form the appropriate foam chambers, seams, skirts, tension cable pockets, and ballast chain pockets. Aluminum end connectors are cut to length, drilled with mounting holes and connector pinholes and assembled onto the booms with stainless steel nuts and bolts. Coated tension cables are strung through pockets and secured with shackles to the end connector extrusions. Ballast chains are added to pockets on the bottom of the containment boom skirts. Adding brand labels to the containment boom is the final step before the sections are folded and bundled, and then palletized.
