Foam filled oil boom

Foam Filled Oil Boom (FOB)

The Foam Filled Oil Boom (FOB) is a solid light-weight internal foam float containment boom that is easy to use, deploy, retrieve and store. The boom is ideal for emergency rapid response use in a variety of sea conditions. The boom can be used in lakes, harbors, marinas, ports, power plants and refineries.

The FOB Boom is extremely versatile, easy to use and ideal for storing large amounts of boom either on a reel, storage rack or inside a container.

How it works

The FOB can be utilized in all climatic conditions and environments, including arctic conditions. The booms are manufactured with PVC fabric in high visibility color, which is oil resistant and has ultra-violet (UV) inhibitors. The internal floats are made with closed-cell foam and vary in size depending upon application. The boom has reflectors and pouches for optional boom lights for night operations.

The Lamor Foam Filled Boom (FOB) is designed for emergency, rapid response use in protected waters nearshore and in calm water areas.

The FOB is manufactured in a wide variety of overall heights with different freeboards and drafts each designed for a specific environmental application.

This boom can be stored on Stackable Aluminum Racks, on a Boom Reel or inside a special Side Door Container for rapid response.
