As the weather improves in many parts of the world, beaches are once again becoming a popular destination for people looking to have fun and enjoy the outdoors. However, ensuring safety at the beach is always a top priority. Whether it’s hotels, resorts, or local authorities, management is constantly exploring ways to create safe swimming areas for their visitors. This is where marine safety booms come in, providing a solution that can be implemented globally to enhance beach safety. The use of these booms can help to prevent accidents and protect beachgoers from hazards such as strong currents and marine life. As a result, they have become an essential tool for ensuring the safety and well-being of people enjoying the beach around the world.
Safety in water with Bolina Recreation Booms
What are Bolina Recreation Booms?
Bolina Recreation Booms, or REBs, are floating barriers placed in water to create a safe area for swimmers. They not only stop small watercraft from entering but also prevent debris and aquatic creatures like jellyfish and sharks from coming into the designated swimming area.
What are these marine safety booms made of?
The booms are constructed out of high-quality, heavy-duty materials to provide excellent stability and durability. They have high-profile floats for better visibility, ensuring that they can be seen easily from a distance and on the surface of the water. The significance of this feature is that it helps watercraft spot the booms from a distance, thereby preventing them from entering the safe area.
The outer skin of the floats is constructed with polyethylene material that is highly resistant to UV light, so it will maintain its colour without fading over time. The internal closed-cell polyurethane filling ensures the float will maintain full buoyancy, even if the outer float skin is damaged by a heavy collision.
