Also nicknamed, “Fastwater Boom,” our 6×6 Containment Boom is popular for rivers and streams that may have a fast current in shallow water! The 6×6 containment boom is easily handled and deployed due to its size so that you can get this barrier out quickly and contain whatever spill may have occurred. Comprised of a 6″ diameter closed-cell foam float and a 6″ skirt barrier, this containment boom is an ideal choice for many inland applications. It is also known as 12″ Containment Boom, and sometimes 13″ Containment Boom if it has a top cable ballast included.
