Floating Debris Boom Deployment

Deployment and setup for your floating trash and debris boom will depend on your water area and the type of protection required for your location. While intakes may require a barrier that blocks off the opening/intake area, other locations may require a setup that allows the debris to wash up along the shoreline. For best results, standard floating booms should be installed at a 30 to 45 degree angle perpendicular to the direction of the water flow.

Due to their impermeable design, each floating trash boom is built for use with a wide range of floating particles. Whether you need to contain small plastics around a lake or collect large debris after a natural disaster, such as a tsunami, hurricane, or flood, we have a boom that can help with your requirements.
