Permanent Booms Resist Debris & Ice

In certain environmental conditions, plastic booms will not work. In situations where there is ice, and large amounts of coarse debris, in tandem with high currents, a steel boom is typically recommended.

Permanent Booms: No annual install or removal

Reduce the risk of death or injury with booms that remain in year round, particularly in spring before plastic booms are installed which is typically the most dangerous when flows are highest.

Ice Control

Designed Right For The Conditions.

Every Geniglace Boom is designed and engineered for its specific purpose and surrounding environmental conditions.

Historic data is used to predict worst case scenarios of ice and debris loading, current, and wind. Every component of the boom is individually engineered to resist these forces.
