Skirt Depth Adjustment for Floating Barriers
Reefing lines, also known as furling lines, are an excellent solution for areas dealing with adjusting water depths or uneven floors. Often used with silt barriers and oil boom, these lines allow customers to tie up the bottom of the skirt as needed throughout their project. This helps meet the changing needs of your project.

Reefing Line Installation
When needed, adjustment lines can be installed in any of our floating barrier products to help raise and lower the depth of the bottom skirt. However, they must be installed during the initial construction phase. Reefing lines are often used in areas with adjusting water flows or areas that have multiple depths along the water bottom.
While these lines can be used with any of our floating boom, they are most commonly used the Floating Turbidity Curtain. When compared to other floating boom (typical depth of only 6 or 12 inches regardless of water depth), turbidity curtains are sized specifically based on the water depth in your location. This often requires adjusting bottoms to meet the contours of your area.
