ShoreMax shore seal boom (inter-tidal boom)
ShoreMax is a special purpose inflatable oil spill containment
boom for use in shallow water environments or to traverse between
the beach and the sea. It is ideal for making the transition between
a conventional floating boom and the shoreline, equally it is very
useful in swamp and marsh areas where the water level can rise and
fall. Ballast is provided by water filled tubes.
ShoreMax is manufactured from welded heavy-duty Urethane.
It lays flat when stowed, optimizing storage space.
ShoreMax features a water ballasted skirt comprising of two water
tubes with a single top tube that provides buoyancy when the boom
is floating. This tube is inflated or as an option can be fitted
with foam floatation. When deployed in shallow water or dry land
the twin water tubes will form a seal, preventing the spread of
oil. The twin water tubes ensure the boom is stable.
ShoreMax is a lightweight but durable inflatable oil spill containment boom with good resistance
to the elements. As standard the ShoreMax is supplied in manageable
50ft / 15m section lengths. The boom is supplied with ASTM compliant
end connectors for rapid coupling of sections. These end connectors
are fitted with Zinc anodes.
ShoreMax containment boom has individually filled air chambers, each chamber
being equipped with the patented Monsun valve. This valve has a
built-in non-return. Water tubes are fitted with a filling / emptying
port with a plug. Water pump and air
blower required for operation.
