MaxiMax & MiniMax
- fence boom
Our range of fence booms are ideal for rapid deployment
and oil containment in a variety of applications.
Elastec/American Marine manufactures a line of fence
boom with added tension members combined with solid foam flotation.
This oil and debris barrier is typically used for rapid deployment
in ports and harbors for surrounding vessels or protecting resources.
The construction employs top and bottom tension members (cable on
top and chain on bottom).
We offer six sizes;
Height 17" / 430mm to 44” / 1100mm
Freeboard 6" / 150mm to 5.75" / 400mm
Draft 11" / 280mm to 27.5" / 700mm
MiniMax and MaxiMax booms have low storage volume
and can be stored on pallets or wound on reels. This system is especially
useful for ports and harbors where a quick response is required.
These booms feature closed cell foam buoyancy panels, vertical stiffeners,
galvanized chain ballast, stainless steel top tension cable, plus
a choice of fabrics. Fence boom is typically used for static or
low current applications.
The construction of these booms does not use sewing that will allow
water to enter the float chambers. The floats are closed cell ensuring
that they will not take up water.
Manufactured in fully welded PVC material, this boom is fitted
with handles and anchor points
MaxiMax boom comes in standard section lengths of 50ft or 100ft
(15m or 30m). MiniMax is also available in 25ft (7.5m) sections.

ASTM compliant interchangeable end connectors for rapid coupling
of sections. End connectors are fitted with sacrificial Zinc anodes.
