Protection and Control Booms

Prevent intrusions in zones where access is limited or restricted.

Our HYDROTIKA product line of protective booms help block intrusions and attacks on protected areas surrounding harbours and naval or military facilities. Our materials are especially durable and shock resistant – even in cold temperatures. Our booms are so buoyant they are virtually unsinkable.

offers a variety of options for situations that require high security levels:

  • Net, rope or wire mesh continuous fences on floating devices
  • Destructive elements that meet the requirements of anti-terrorism security programs

Debris Booms

Floating debris brought in by wind, water currents and waves can damage your facilities and investments. HYDROTIKA’s solutions are durable, shock resistant and weather proof, and meet the needs of a wide range of situations:

  • Trees, branches and logs
  • Cans, bottles, plastic and glass containers
  • Control and containment of vegetation
  • Icy winter conditions

Permanent Containment Booms

Control lightweight debris and vegetation in calm water.

This type of boom is made up of small format, highly buoyant floatation materials. Evenly spread out and fixed in the upper part of a submerged curtain, they create a permanent barrier below the waterline. The height of a curtain depends on what it will be used for and what it is made from:

  • Geosynthetic tape
  • Nets in varying densities of mesh
  • Rubber bands
  • PVC, polyester or polypropylene fabric
  • Woven polyethylene.
