Exclusion Zone Booms

Our Exclusion Zone Booms provide clear delineation of restricted areas to help protect buildings, structures, vessels and other waterside assets where there may be a risk of intrusion (whether accidental or deliberate). These booms are also used to clearly zone off areas of water around construction sites to provide a safe environment for those at work on projects like the London Olympics, or to separate leisure activities such as keeping swimmers away from PWC traffic.
