Floating Booms and Barriers

Since 1967, Elastec has manufactured floating booms and barriers through its acquisition of American Marine in Cocoa, Florida. We manufacture floating containment boom for oil spill response, floating trash, debris, and aquatic weed control. For storage, we offer a line of boom reels. For silt and sediment control during dredging and marine construction projects, we manufacture a complete line of  turbidity curtains. We also offer the BoomVane™ to aid in the deployment of containment boom in moving water or with a vessel. Learn about ASTM Standards for oil containment boom. Fill out our questionnaire and tell us about your project.

Oil Containment Boom

We are an industry leader in the manufacture of oil containment boom. Our standard oil containment boom is always in stock. Elastec offers a wide variety of accessories. We can also manufacture custom boom to fill individual needs. We also offer the BoomVane™ to aid in the deployment of containment boom in moving water or with a vessel.

Floating trash and debris barrier

Trash and Debris Boom

Elastec’s line of floating trash and debris boom is designed to contain or exclude floatables. Whether you are trying to stop debris in waterways or protect beaches from invasive aquatic plants, we can provide a solution that works for you.

Turbidity curtains

Turbidity Curtains

Turbidity curtains, silt curtains, silt screens, silt barriers, or turbidity barriers, as they are sometimes called, are floating barriers used in marine construction, dredging, and remediation projects to control the silt and sediment in a body of water. Elastec turbidity curtains can be set up to keep construction areas in compliance and protect the environment.

Invasive aquatic plant control barrier

Invasive Aquatic Plant Boom

Invasive Aquatic Plant Barriers are used for the control and containment of aquatic plant life. Our floating barriers are designed with an emphasis on improving water quality and are used to maintain a natural, balanced ecosystem. Elastec barriers have recreational, agricultural, and industrial uses and control water born pollutants.

Fire proof containment boom

Fire Boom

Elastec is a world leader in the design and manufacture of fire boom. In the summer of 2010, we supported the controlled burn effort in the Gulf of Mexico to minimize the impact from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Several models of fire resistant oil boom were deployed in the early stages of the in-situ burning operation.

Custom containment boom

Custom Containment Boom

Elastec can manufacture a custom boom, barrier or curtain from geosynthetic materials. Whether it’s aquatic harvesting, floating trash and debris, silt and sediment, oil spills or surface water pollution issues, our custom booms are designed with an emphasis on improving water quality through the reduction and control of pollutants.

Containment boom reel

Containment Boom Reels

Oil containment boom reels are the fastest and most efficient means for storage, deployment and recovery of longer lengths of boom. Most of our reels have the ability to free-wheel to speed up deployment. Our boom reels may be hydraulic or manually operated and are suitable for both inflatable boom and some models of foam flotation boom.

“We purchased a floating baffle from Elastec for one of our wastewater treatment lagoons. We cannot tell you how impressed we were regarding the ease of installation. What I expected a week to accomplish was completed in only two days.”

“PermaFence was installed last summer and survived the winter in wind and ice 24”-30” thick.”

“Your containment boom is the perfect device to contain cranberries for harvest. We love your product.”

Dawn R.

“I am pleased to confirm that your boom did a great job collecting plastic bottles, twigs and other floating debris. Thank you again for your cooperation in providing this equipment and training our staff with its use.”

E. Martin

“The seaweed was stacked in the water 20 ft. from shore to beach. The swim area is now free of seaweed for swimming and snorkeling. Thank you.”

Doug P.

"After installing an Elastec Simplex Boom the moss and pond weed problem was reduced to no more than nuisance amounts. This works so well that we ordered three more booms for this season to be installed in our canal system."
