What Types of Floating Trash Can Our Barriers Contain?

Stormwater runoff from ditches and streams can carry floating trash and debris with it to rivers and the ocean. Our containment boom is designed for long-term and short term control of floatables. It has been tested and deployed for use in strong currents and in permanent installations near docks or in harbors and protected waterways including Sargassum and seaweed containment and deflection.

Common Items Contained by Floating 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.”

Rick K.

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

Duane B.

“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."
