HARDBOOM was developed specifically for
“permanent deployment” and is one of the most effective ways to have your
boom system in place before a spill occurs.
Offering three (3) standard designs, HARDBOOM protects those areas where it would be particularly sensitive to an oil
spill; the area that would be far too costly to get into and clean up; the
area, which if shut down for a lengthy period, would cost more than the
cleanup. It was also designed to protect your facility from someone
HARDBOOM is made of super strong, high tensile
belting, 60 times stronger than most fabrics used in deployment booms.
The floats are constructed from super durable, high
quality foam filled ABS plastic. The closed cell filled floats are tested
tough for withstanding abrasion, resisting marine growth, taking on wave
action and remaining functional at all times.
As well as our other systems, ABBCO uses connectors
that meet all ASTM standards. This allows you to connect HARDBOOM
directly to your existing boom. In an emergency, this versatility could be
extremely valuable and cost saving.
placement, a special, low maintenance, Cable Tide Riser System (CTRS) has
been designed to have the boom remain in position, yet automatically follow
the rise and fall of the tides, no adjustments necessary, no manpower
