Elastec offers anchor systems for
securing containment boom, curtains and other marine devices. They
are offered as complete kits with a choice of anchor sizes.
Note that when anchoring boom, it is best to know
the water depth and current to determine the correct number and
size of anchors as well as the length of anchor line. It is benefical
that a buoy is placed between the anchor line and the boom to help
the boom mantain the correct attitude in the water.
Navigation Warning Lights
Two sizes of warning lights are offered to caution
marine traffic of containment boom location. These may be battery
or solar powered.
Consult Elastec sales professionals
for advice on the number and model of navigation warning buoys best
suited to your application.
