Floating Debris & Trash Booms

Aquatic Plant Boom

ABASCO has designed special aquatic plant barriers to prevent the migration of sargassum and seaweed onto shorelines or tourist beaches. The design allows for water movement but curtain mesh prevents the sargassum seaweed invasion on Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico beaches. A properly installed ABASCO Aquatic Plant Barrier should deflect the sargassum seaweed along coastal and inland water areas. Please contact us for additional information.

ABASCO FLOATING DEBRIS BOOM

ABASCO has created a floating debris boom by modifying the robust permanent boom to include a bolt on composite screen or monofilament fabric to allow water flow underneath while the fabric prevents debris, sargassum/seaweed or sediments migrating through the barrier. Applications can be customized for industrial, shoreline or storm water applications. This product can also be used as a trash boom. Please contact us for additional information.

ABASCO SIGMA 24

Belting: ABASCO SIGMA 24 Permanent boom is constructed from industrial-grade belting having heat-set, high-tension polyester yarns, pre-tensioned in the loom offering minimized stretch, high tear and tensile strength . The 24” belting is resistant to marine growth, U.V. and oxidation degradation. Offers maximum service life under the most severe wave, wind, ice and abrasive conditions.

Ballast: Belting fabric has lead weights riveted to the fabric and netting has a HG ballast chain attached along the bottom of netting panel.
Connectors: Permanent boom belting has heavy duty ASTM Universal connectors and stainless steel fasteners. ASTM stainless steel toggle pins with 50’ or 100’ section options. Shackles are used to attach the chain plates at each end to secure the netting panel.
Debris Skirt: A semi-rigid polyester netting is attached to the SIGMA belting. The vertical section ends of filter fabric have stainless steel grommets which are attached to the opposing sections. Different depths are available and different opening sizes using multiple options on netting material.

MARINE NET BARRIERS

ABASCO offers floating debris barriers and trash booms which utilize various mesh sizes of nets secured to flotation which protect water intakes and other areas from debris. These can be used for industrial, shoreline or storm water applications and customized for the applications. Floating debris barriers utilize nets of various mesh size to protect intakes and other areas from debris and marine animals, including turtles. Please contact us for additional information.
