Boom Reels


Oil containment booms can be stored on reels for ease of deployment and recovery. Reels are built to hold up to 500 metres of boom, although a reel holding 500 metres of boom will be extremely large. Fence booms, air booms, self inflating booms and tidal booms may all be stored on reels. Reels holding smaller quantities of light boom may be manually operated with larger reels being hydraulically driven.  Reels are constructed from either painted steel, galvanized steel, aluminium, stainless steel or a mixture of different metals.

Application: The storage of oil containment boom on reels protects the boom from physical damage or attack from vermin. Reels allow rapid deployment of boom in the event of a spill.

  • Reels allow booms to be deployed and returned quickly and efficiently, often by one or two personnel.
  • Reels prevent boom damage as a result of dragging across wharves, rocks or other abrasive surfaces.
  • Reels are manufactured individually to suit the type, size and length of boom.
  • Choice of galvanised steel or stainless steel. 
  • Choose from hand operated or power rewind reels using electric or diesel driven hydraulic power packs.
  • Covers can be made to prevent UV damaging the exposed boom.
  • Reels can be made to suit specific on-site storage or transportation requirements.
