Boom Standoff Unit
The Boom Standoff Unit is a useful device to prolong
the life of your containment boom. It is used to keep containment
boom away from the hull of a ship or to hold the boom off a dock
area. This has two advantages, firstly it will reduce the amount
of wear and abrasion the boom may encounter from barnicles on the
dock or ships hull, secondly it increases the catchment area.
These Boom Standoff Units may be used instead of conventional
anchoring. These units help to catch oil that may run off the deck
by extending the containment area, especially if the wind is blowing
the boom against the side of the ship.
The unit comprises of a marine grade aluminum frame with legs fitted
with impact and abrasion resistant HDPE floats. Each unit is supplied
with boom attachment line.
