It is a pressure inflatable boom which uses air for buoyancy. Each boom section length is segmented into individual inflatable chambers by way of internal bulkheads. This ensures that the boom will maintain positive buoyancy and continue to float in the event of any damage. Booms feature simple, rapid inflation, and high buoyancy to weight ratios for use in waves and demanding conditions. Booms can be inflated using handheld or backpack inflation blowers, or with integrated hydraulic blowers mounted on a boom storage and deployment reel.
