ABASCO Shoreline Barrier effectively contains oil spills
in shallow water areas, such as shorelines, swamps, marshes
and river banks. The barrier is especially effective in areas
with fluctuating tides. The barrier consists of two water-filled
tubular bladders running side-by-side the length of the barrier.
On top of these bladders is a third, air-filled tubular bladder.
In very shallow water the barrier rests on the bottom, preventing
oil from seeping underneath the barrier. In water deeper than
the height of the bottom bladders, the barrier floats, with
the top air-filled bladder out of the water, and functions
like a conventional boom.
Each barrier section has two air inflation/deflation/check
valves and two water fill/drain valves. End connectors are
marine grade aluminum ASTM connectors with ASTM retainer pins.
Two sizes are available:
|Freeboard, in (mm)
