The Ecobarrier Bubble Curtain is a submerged high pressure pipe that runs along the seabed. Compressed air is pumped through the Bubble Tubing®, designed by Canadianpond.ca, which creates a wall of bubbles rising to the surface. The bubbles are permeable to water, however, act as a barrier that is effective in:
1) Controlling the movement of floating and subsurface debris, such as plastic, rubbish, silt and sediment; 2) Attenuating shock wave impact from blasting or pile driving to protect marine life; 3) Diverting jellyfish and other marine life from intake pipes.

|Applications||Tackle marine pollution caused by noise, silt and debris.|
Ecobarrier Bubble Curtains
Ecobarrier Bubble Curtains are suitable for long-term use in marinas, ports, canals, intake structures and offshore environments.
Installation is easy, with low running costs and maintenance is kept to a minimum. Vessels can pass over the top of the barrier at any time, so marine traffic can flow freely. They can easily be removed and redeployed at a different location.
