A containment boom is a floating barrier used to contain floating debris, such as plastic, rubbish, silt and sediment, or pollutants that enter our waterways through construction, development and everyday living.
Ecocoast designs, manufactures, supplies and installs different types of containment booms under the brand Ecobarrier®. All containment booms are in-country solutions, made at our production facility in Umm Al Quwain, the United Arab Emirates.
As every construction site and marine environment is different, the booms can be custom designed and manufactured to suit the project requirements.
Having a contracting background, we provide after-sales support that cannot easily be matched. Our containment booms have been successfully implemented in several locations throughout the Middle East and beyond.
|Products||Ecobarrier Foam Booms||Ecobarrier Debris Nets||Ecobarrier Intake Booms|
|Applications||Ecobarrier Foam Booms are suitable for areas with different current intensities that require containment of high volumes of surface foam.||Ecobarrier Debris Nets block or capture almost all types of floating debris, including jellyfish.||Ecobarrier Intake Booms are suitable for intakes to protect against eventual oil spills, debris, as well as jellyfish.|
Ecobarrier Foam Booms
Our Ecobarrier Foam Booms are used to block or capture high volumes of surface foam or debris. They are available in four different classes built to withstand low, medium or heavy currents.
The booms are made of UV stabilized PVC membrane fabric in yellow color, but can be produced in different color variations upon request.
To improve identification of the Ecobarrier Foam Booms, navigation buoys and Hyperion lanterns can be provided to ensure clear demarcation of the area and an improved night-time lit environment. Further customization is available, as we always aim to meet the needs and requirements of client specific marine environments.

Ecobarrier Debris Nets
Our Ecobarrier Debris Nets are mainly used to block or capture almost all types of floating debris, including jellyfish, as well as prevent extended pollution at the same time.
They are designed for long-term use in most marine environments and weather conditions, and consist of rotationally molded UV-stabilized virgin polyethylene floats.

|Panel Length||10-30 M||10-30 M|
|Available Colors||Floats in red, yellow, white and black
Fabric in red, black and light grey
Ecobarrier Intake Booms
Our Ecobarrier Intake Boom is a floating boom to be installed around an intake to protect it against eventual oil spills, floating debris and jellyfish. Specifically designed and manufactured for permanent installations and adverse conditions.
The boom is constructed of very durable high tensile material. Its floats are rotary-moulded, foam filled, long and wide, providing superior buoyancy and high stability in rough water.
Custom-made Articulated Beacons up to 45 meters are now also available for the first time in the Middle East, often used for intakes.
