The UNIBOOM® X 1800, 2200 and 3000 are rapid deployment boom systems. They are self-inflatable single-point inflation booms, designed for use in open waters and offshore conditions. By utilising a special compressed air inflation system, the manpower and time for deployment and retrieval is reduced to a minimum. The booms inflate during deployment, and are fully operative once they are in the water. A single operator can deploy 400 m of UNIBOOM® X 1800, 2200 and 3000 in less than 15 minutes. The UNIBOOM® X 1800, 2200 and 3000 are supplied with remote control as standard. Using the remote control panel, the operator has full control of the air filling, deployment and retrieval of the booms.
The booms' freeboard is maintained by flexible spiral shaped systems which are pressurised with air while the booms are still on the winder. Transverse bulkheads divide the booms into 5-metre chambers.
The UNIBOOM® has a secondary back-up inflation system that can be used to top up the boom's air chambers when necessary, allowing long term deployment of the boom in very rough seas.
The UNIBOOM® is stored on a hydraulic winder, called a UNIREEL®, and the only required deck space during operation, is the UNIREEL®'s own footprint.
