Heavy Duty Boom Neoprene

The Inflatable Neoprene Oil Boom HDB-N is an oil containment boom with inflatable cylindrical floats for use in nearshore, harbors, open waters and offshore.

These booms are designed to offer fast deployment and reliable operation with low personnel requirements. Their proven design and construction, low inflation pressure and high buoyancy to weight ratio give them excellent wave following characteristics and reliable oil containment even in adverse weather conditions in all climates, even in Arctic conditions.

The HDB Neoprene booms are entirely manufactured from Neoprene coated polyamide. It is particularly robust, giving a long service life with a minimum of maintenance. Each Individual Buoyancy Chamber is isolated. If one air chamber should get damaged or deflated, adjacent chambers will not be affected and will remain inflated.

This fabric is both strong and abrasion resistant, giving rise to extremely robust and high-quality booms. It is also highly resistant to oil, chemicals, all weather conditions and UV light.  The boom fabric color can be selected black or orange.
