Rope Safety Booms

Ideal for flood defence and navigation authorities to protect lives, vessels and structures.

 

The Rope Safety Booms have been designed to meet a stringent set of conditions set out by the UK Environment Agency and over 400 have been in service with no maintenance or replacement required.

They comprise of a series of guard piles spaced up to 10m apart with floats supporting two ropes providing constant freeboard and air draft. The design of the float allows up to two casualties to climb onto the float without ladders and the ropes allow casualties to get to shore unaided.

The floats work silently in all conditions and follow the water level. Reflective panels are provided, which are visible from all upstream angles.

  • The booms are effective at stopping craft with a 40T minimum breaking load.
  • The internal closed cell polyurethane foam filling ensures that the float will maintain full buoyancy in an unlikely event where the outer float skin is damaged by a heavy collision – they are virtually unsinkable.
  • The quality polyethylene material used is highly resistant to the damaging effects of UV light and colour fade over time, ideal for applications in high UV environments.
