Silt Booms

Supplier: Perth Petroleum Services

Silt Booms are available in a variety of sizes and materials.

Price Guide (Inc GST): POA

Silt Booms have a foam buoyancy chamber supporting a deep skirt. The Skirt can vary from a few metres to as many as twenty metres deep.

Skirt material is usually woven Geotextile fabric, but can also be a non-porous fabric.

Most silt booms are used in waters with low or no current. Booms in strong currents require additional longitudinal strength to cater for the extremely large force exerted on the skirt of the boom.
