Murlac floating oil booms are designed to control and contain an oil spill in water. They can be used to reduce the possibility of polluting shorelines and other resources. Murlac oil booms can also be deployed to help concentrate oil in thicker layers on the surface so that the oil can be collected more effectively.

In  brief, murlac floating oil booms consist of a top flotation pocket using an environmentally safe and 100% recyclable closed cell foam. In addition to foam buoyancy we can manufacture our oil booms to be air filled.

Below the foam buoyancy pocket of the oil boom is a curtain hanging vertically in the water.

At the bottom of the oil boom ‘curtain’ is a ballast pocket, where chain is used as a ballast weight to hold the curtain down in the water. Every 5m or closer if required are d-shackles for attaching additional weight and anchors.

We offer a floating oil boom installation service nationwide, providing trained operatives with construction and industry accreditation as standard.


Oil booms from Murlac are available to purchase and hire for both long and short term projects. We also offer a buyback on floating oil booms at the end of the project to ensure that you get the most competitive rates for premier oil booms without a premier price.


Murlac floating oil booms can be manufactured to any length and depth, however we encourage our customers to consider the manual handling associated when installing oil booms. With health and safety in mind, we advise that oil booms are manufactured in up to 20m lengths and allow for joining of units on site using the integrated joining element of the oil boom.


Marine oil booms manufactured by Murlac can be joined together to create a continual length.
