The ELASTEC Beach Bouncer XT is a heavy duty boom designed to deflect Sargassum, seagrass, and other invasive aquatic seaweeds to protect beaches, tourism, and marine life. It is also useful to control floating trash and debris. The large diameter float designs (18 inch / 0.4 m and 24 inch / 0.6 m) provide increased freeboard for optimal surface debris capture and visibility. The floats are coupled with rugged log connection hardware with a 4.75 ton working load limit (WLL). The heavy-duty boom has been tested to a breaking strength of 60,000 lb / 27,216 kg. A 3ft / 0.9 m mesh skirt allows water flow to reduce drag and pull on the system while maintaining containment of floating and submerged debris.
