As summer approaches and temperatures rise, beachgoers in the United Arab Emirates have started noticing jellyfish in the waters. With 7 types of jellyfish inhabiting the UAE’s coastal waters, encountering these sea creatures is not uncommon during peak summer months. Protecting beachgoers from jellyfish is essential to maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for all.

How resorts can keep jellyfish at bay

Our people safety booms are specifically designed for various aquatic environments, including leisure facilities, beaches, events, entertainment venues and hospitality locations.

      Why periodic cleaning is important

      Periodic cleaning of the nets is crucial to maintaining their effectiveness.

      Over time, marine growth such as algae and barnacles can accumulate on the nets, reducing their buoyancy and potentially compromising their ability to keep jellyfish and other marine life out. Regular cleaning ensures that the barriers remain clear and functional, providing continuous protection for beachgoers.

      Additionally, it helps to extend the lifespan of the barriers, making them a more cost-effective and sustainable solution for marine protection. For more details on the importance of periodic cleaning, please refer to this blogpost.
