The Markleen Uniboom® A Series Boom is a rugged and dependable oil containment boom to be used in sheltered waters.
This boom is equipped with cylindrical floats which are flexible giving the the boom excellent wave following characteristics and exceptional protection in adverse conditions.
The materials used, top quality, high-frequency-welded oil-resistant PVC or PU coated fabrics, make this boom robust and highly resistant to hydrocarbons, chemical agents and weather conditions.
Deployment and recovery:
The cylindrical floats, which are filled with closed cell foam, make quick deployment possible (typically 2 people and a light craft are needed). 250 metres of boom can be deployed in less than 5 minutes. Moreover, the boom has fold-points every two metres, and stows away easily in a standard container.
The boom is composed of 2-metre long independent cylindrical floats which guarantee floatation in case of damage.
Connection between booms:
Each section is fitted with standard end connectors, which may be ASTM, UNICON or Norwegian type as required.
