ACME Floating Containment Boom is manufactured from a variety of extremely durable, flexible, thermoplastic fabrics. The fabrics are dielectrically sealed to form enclosures for flotation logs and for the galvanized chain ballast that also serves as a tension member. A skirt that extends below the surface of the water provides a flexible floating barrier. We know firsthand how crucial a quick turnaround is for spill response. Time means money, environmental impact, and lost productivity. ACME’s Eastman cutting machine cuts fabric faster and more precisely, enabling us to turn around orders for boom even more quickly.

INLAND AND NEARSHORE BOOM:
Cover everything from small bodies of water
where no prevailing winds or currents will
prevent removal, to large lakes, bays, or
harbors, where winds create significant waves,
and where there are currents and tidal flows.
Used in open waters, such as large lakes, bays,
harbors or ocean environments. Top cable is
recommended when several hundred feet are
deployed, and 3/8″ chain ballast is
recommended when tidal flows or current exist.
A permanent floating oil spill barrier specially
designed and built for long-term service, and is
used at fuel docks, offshore platforms, shipyards,
refinery terminals, cargo terminals, dry docks, ferry terminals and marinas.
ACME Floating Containment Boom can be manufactured in a variety of fabrics and weights (22 oz., 24 oz., or 30 oz. urethanes). ACME recommends using Poly couplers with the SuperMini Boom; Aluminum ASTM “Z” or slide couplers are recommended for all other ACME containment booms. Top tension cable is available for all ACME containment boo except Super-Mini Boom.
