Troilboom Beach by DESMI is a lightweight versatile shore sealing boom which can be used in all situations, apart from rocky shorelines.
As a lightweight option, the Troilboom beach shore sealing boom is made in a similar way to the Ro-Boom beach oil containment boom but from lighter-weight materials, allowing greater flexibility when transporting and deploying this boom. It is available in either PVC or urethane fabrics, which are tough and durable enough to survive repeated use on sand and mud substrates.
Troilboom beach is a special purpose containment boom that utilises water ballast – the water is pumped into two tubes along the bottom of the boom. This water acts as ballast when the boom is floating; once the boom is stranded these tubes sit on the ground and form a seal. The two fins running the length of the water tubes aid this effect. The Troilboom beach is able to make the transition between the water and land and prevents the spread of oil in these regions.
Troilboom beach can be deployed on beaches with relatively low waves, swamps, lagoons and other areas where the water level is shallow or changes due to tide, rains or flooding. Troilboom beach is fitted with a single air tube along the top of each section – this chamber is inflated and the boom can be towed to the deployment location. Once on site, the water tubes are filled. Sections of the boom are connected with ASTM aluminium quick connectors, and other types of boom can also be connected using these connectors. The smooth parallel surfaces of the boom are easy to clean.
Advantages of Troilboom beach shore sealing boom:
- Twin water tube and single air tube
- Contain oil in tidal areas
- Ideal for swamps, lagoons, beaches and wetlands
- Bottom and top fins for beach sealing and splashover protection
- Connect with other booms fitted with ASTM connectors
- Easy to clean
- Highly visible colour
- Lighter and more manoeuvrable than Ro-Boom Beach
