Permanent Fence Boom MK 8

The Permanent Fence Boom Mk 8 is a heavy duty solid float boom that is designed specifically for permanent installations in e.g. harbors and water inlets. The MK 8 boom’s strength, high freeboard and reserve buoyancy floatation make it effective under harsh conditions.

The Mk 8 is manufactured from strong PVC coated belting fabric together with durable polyethylene floats. The floats are made from solid molded closed cell polyethylene foam that is high temperature pressed to form the outer skin incorporating a unique splash guard handle. The booms have marine growth inhibitors and are UV resistant. The boom is equipped with galvanized steel ballast weights. The boom sections are supplied with ASTM Z or Slide type connectors, made in accordance with the ASTM F962 standard.

The Mk 8 oil containment and protection boom is durable and can withstand the impacts of heavy debris concentrations and has a long service life
