                      (since GlobeBoom can roll up on a reel for fast
                      deployment & recovery)


    Proven durability: Our floats are extremely abrasion and crush resistant.

Ballast
GlobeBoom®LWU & GlobeBoom®ED normally use chain ballast. GlobeBoom®UHW and GlobeBoom®I use lead ballast. Special purpose booms may alternate chain for lead and vice versa. Lead ballast may be substituted for chain on any boom. Ballast provided with the standard design is adequate for most operating conditions. In some operations, extra ballast could be required - please consult with Applied Fabric Technologies, Inc. In shallow waters or rivers use the shallowest draft possible.

End Connectors
All booms need to be connected easily. Aluminum connectors are suitable for all but continuous immersion service. Applied Fabric Technologies, Inc. offers four styles of connectors for you to choose from with no price differences. The standard connector on all models of GlobeBoom® is the ASTM aluminum connector. We also offer OILFENCE® type in PVC or aluminum and U.S. Navy standard on any size of GlobeBoom® over 50' long at no additional cost. We will also be pleased to quote on any other style of connector if normally available.

Anchor Points
Anchor Points are standard on 100' or longer lengths of GlobeBoom®. When the boom is to be permanently moored or subjected to severe service, heavy duty OILFENCE®-type anchor points are available.
