The PermaFence containment boom is designed for permanent installations and minimum maintenance. This heavy-duty boom is capable of withstanding long-term deployments and the arduous conditions of permanent installations. Our specially molded foam filled floats have a unique design that greatly enhances the impact resistance while providing high buoyancy reserve. These floats are produced in HDPE material that provides excellent UV and abrasion resistance. American Marine, a division of Elastec, has been manufacturing quality floating boom and barrier products since 1967.

The PermaFence floats are very simple to maintain and can be easily removed for cleaning from the heavy-duty belting. The floats are mounted on an algaecide treated PVC or Urethane Polyester belting.

We offer a choice of containment boom connectors including ASTM compliant Universal Slide or “Z” connector. PermaFence is fitted with zinc anodes and handles.
