Foam Filled Oil Boom

The Foam Filled Oil Boom (FOB) is a solid light-weight float containment boom that is easy to use and store. The boom is ideal for emergency and permanent use in sea conditions from calm to open water. The boom is ideal for use in lakes, harbors, power plants and refineries. The FOB can be utilized in all climatic conditions and environments, including Arctic conditions.

The booms are manufactured of PVC/PU coated woven dtex polyester fabric in high visibility red color. The boom is UV and oil resistant with very low maintenance required.

The internal floats are made from closed cell foam. The boom incorporates reflectors supplemented by boom light pouches and chaffs for radar reflectors. The hot dip galvanized DIN 763 ballast steel chain is incorporated into the skirt and a belt strengthener is stitched to the top to make the boom more robust.

The boom is supplied with ASTM Z connectors, made in accordance with the ASTM F962 standard.
