Permanent Pollution Booms

Our Pollution Booms are the permanent pollution solution where constant protection of environmentally sensitive sites or plant is required for total peace of mind, for example to protect sand filters in water treatment works from accidental diesel spills etc.

This protected design has a unique flush face giving long term protection of the floats behind the nitrile and polyester reinforced curtain.
