With such a myriad of applications, Aqua-Guard's Harbourflex Containment Boom stands out as a world leader in permanent marine protection.

Recently, Aqua-Guard has supplied 1,200 metres of heavy duty 350 high tensile barrier fabric (3500 lbs/in; 625 kg/cm) to protect a wildlife sancturary. This tensile rating equates to more than 126,000 lbs or 57,000 kg based on a 36 in (91 cm) wide boom size.

Harbourflex Boom offers low maintenance and a life expectancy of over 25 years (in normal marine conditions).

The current low Canadian dollar makes Harbourflex very cost effective!
