Solid Flotation Boom

The Solid Flotation Oil Boom is a light-weight and cost-effective boom solution that can be deployed in multiple environments e.g. industrial sites, rivers and harbors and other calm waters.

The SFB is manufactured from high visibility PVC and is easy to deploy and recover. The cylindrical floats inside the boom are made of closed cell foam. The boom has a top tension cable that is enclosed in a pocket and at the bottom a galvanized DIN 763 ballast chain. The tension cable and ballast chain together give the boom strength. The SFB is supplied with ASTM Z connectors, made in accordance with F962, at each end. The SFB boom is also available with slide connector.

The SFB is one of the most widely utilized floating containment booms due to its cost-effective construction, rapid and easy deployment and multiple usage areas.
