Subcon Bottom Opening Bulk-Bags (BOBBs) are specifically designed for offshore applications.  Our bags are rated to AS3668-1989 to WLL>2Te to ensure a nominal 1m3 or 1.4-tonne payload of sand, aggregate or cement and meet splash zone DAFs for deployment. 
Subcon BOBBs have four, extra-long lift points sewn into the bag. Once the base restraint loops are released, the base of the bag will fully open, deploying the contents precisely. Compared to conventional chute designs, Subcon BOBBs improve safety by ensuring 100% of the material is deployed and none is returned back to the deck. They are provided with NATA endorsed batch load test certification. When used in conjunction with our hydraulic deployment frame they allow for the fast and accurate deployment of materials underwater.
