Oil Containment Boom
The first step in dealing with an oil spill is to control the spread of the oil in the water. By containing the oil in a single location, it is less able to cause damage. You’ll also make it easier for clean-up work to begin. A Duraflex oil containment boom is an ideal spill containment solution.
Oil spills are incredibly damaging to the natural environment, and affect every part of the ecosystem they enter. They can cling to individual grains of sand on a beach, and wash into coastal marshes and mangrove wetlands. This oil can injure or kill fish, sea birds, and marine mammals. As you can see, it is very important that these spills are carefully managed so that their devastating effects are minimised.
Our oil booms are also useful for other situations where you might need to contain something in water, such as rubbish, debris, duckweed and more.
Duraflex Floating Oil Containment Booms
Each Duraflex oil containment boom is manufactured from a heavy-duty, coated 650 GSM ripstop PVC fabric. Oil cannot penetrate through this material, keeping it effectively contained within a set area.
Our booms are topped with floating devices, while weights attached to the bottom of the fabric ensure that the oil remains trapped. Eyelets on either side of the boom allow you to connect one oil boom with another. This is a great way to quickly and easily increase their length, customising them for a spill of any size. The eyelets can also be used to attach a boom to an anchor.
Each Duraflex Greentec oil containment boom is available in any size and a range of different colours.
