Ecobarrier Floating Buoys

Used as demarcation for shallow water or nearshore installations.

Ecobarrier Floating Buoys, EFB-650, are mainly used for shallow water or nearshore installations. They are ideal for marking safe water zones and limits of swimming areas, temporary construction areas and racing marks.

The 650mm Ecobarrier Floating Buoys are designed and manufactured in-house at our production facility in Umm Al Quwain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Manufactured from strong, durable UV-stabilized virgin polyethylene, the buoys are filled with closed-cell polyurethane foam for additional strength and durability. Small and lightweight, they are rotationally molded with a wall thickness of 7mm. They can be customized with mould-in graphics, a solar marine lantern (Hyperion) or signage. The buoys are available in yellow, red or green, as per IALA recommendations E-108.

Ecobarrier Floating Buoys, EFB-650, are approved and specified by Dubai Municipality. A certificate can be provided upon request.

To summarize, what are their benefits?

• Small and light weight for easy installation.
• Made for high UV environments; color will not fade or bleach.
• Integrated central pipe to allow customization.
• Complete closed-cell PU foam filling, designed to float even if outer shell is ruptured.

FAQ

The Ecobarrier Floating Buoy is mainly used as demarcation in shallow water or for nearshore installations.
The buoy is typically attached using Ecomoor, the next-generation of mooring systems. Ecomoor does less damage to the surrounding seabed, natural or artificial structures, is lightweight and cost-effective compared to traditional mooring systems. The latter is however also available as an option.
The Ecobarrier Floating Buoys have been installed in the GCC. They are also approved and specified by Dubai Municipality. Over 200 failing demarcation buoys along the UAE coastline are being replaced by the Ecobarrier EFB-650 buoys since 2017. The buoys are endorsed by experts working for industry leaders as well. Endorsement packs are available upon request.
