Floating Barrier Installation

Once your barrier has been connected and is ready for deployment, the anchoring system can be implemented with your barrier. Anchoring is typically achieved through the following method:

  1. Anchor the Buoy into Position
  2. Attach the Buoy to the Floating Barrier via the Painter Rope
    (anchoring through this method prevents placing too much stress on the boom)

For more detailed information, read through the Debris Boom Installation Guide.
