GlobeBoom® is available in five different fabrics to match different operating conditions and budgets. It is offered in standard sizes, but is easily customized and configured for your specific needs.
GlobeBoom® PA - Light Weight PVC Alloy
For a rugged, repairable response boom with a low entry cost the GlobeBoom® PA series is an excellent choice. These products use Elvaloy® coated polyester barrier fabrics having coated weights of either 28 or 30 oz/sq yd. This material yields a product that is a cut above "contractor boom" in terms of its surviveabliy through more and longer deployments. Four standard, as well as, custom sizes are available.
GlobeBoom® LWU - Lightweight Urethane
In situations where boom is only used for actual spills and training, this product is your ideal solution. Urethane covered barrier fabric is the right choice where very cold or very hot storage temperatures may be encountered and where strong UV exposure is to be expected. Comparable to "contractor boom" in handling, but stores more compactly and is more easily repaired. Uses the proven GlobeBoom® flotation system - three standard sizes from 14" to 24".
GlobeBoom® ED - Extra Duty
This exclusive Globe fabric exceeds most urethane fabrics in environmental resistance and offers superior abrasion resistance, high tensile strength (1200 lbs. per inch width), and very high tear strength. This is our standard product at a moderate price but with premium performance. Four sizes are available from 14" to 36". Deeper skirts are available upon request.
GlobeBoom® UHW - Urethane Heavy Weight
This series of boom uses the time tested OILFENCE™ Urethane impregnated fabric with the more conventional GlobeBoom® float design. Three sizes allow you flexibility of choice. Easily repaired and unrivaled durability means you may never have to replace it.
GlobeBoom® I - Industrial Boom
The industrial series offers economical durability for permanent or continuous use. The all black PVC conveyor belting type fabric is ideal where you don't want to draw attention to the boom or have chronic pollutants show up against the highly visible colors standard in most booms - two sizes 18" and 24" are available, and custom sizes can be built upon request.
Moderately priced emergency response and semi-permanent barriers available in five fabric choices with a range of heights. GlobeBoom® is engineered with superior impregnated fabrics that comparably priced barrier can't match.

- Our float design allows:
- Compact storage

- Quick and easy storage & launching (since GlobeBoom® can roll up on a reel for fast deployment & recovery)

GlobeBoom® PA, GlobeBoom® LWU and 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 shallow waters or rivers use the shallowest draft possible. In some operations, extra ballast could be required - please consult with Applied Fabric Technologies, Inc.
All booms need to be connected easily. Aluminum connectors are suitable for all but continuous immersion service. Desmi-AFTI offers several styles of connectors for you to choose from with no price differences. The standard connector on all models of GlobeBoom® is the ASTM "Z" or "Slide" aluminum connector. We also offer OILFENCE™ type in ABS 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. View Available Styles.
