PREMIUM BOAT PROTECTION SYSTEM
Pile Fender is a unique solution to a problem many modern yachts and power boats have when leaving or arriving at their slips. With sleek, designer lines and no protective beltings, there is always the chance that their pristine gel coat will come into contact with the piles and marine biofouling (mussels, oysters, limpets, weed, dirt, etc.). Take the pressure out of docking manoeuvres in high winds, inclement weather and strong currents. Pile Fenders not only protect your hull from bumps, chafes and scratches but also provide an all-tide, all-weather mooring solution where your mooring ropes are not subjected to unwanted and unsafe wear and tear.
Pile Fender is a solid PU foam fender collar which sits about, and grips, a twin-wall culvert pipe *.
The pipe is buoyant but the main buoyancy comes from one or more Pile Fender Rings placed at water level. The number of floats is determined by the height of the tube and the weight of the additional Pile Fenders used. The tube can be cut to the right height for any boat and the Pile Fender Rings can be positioned anywhere on the tube to provide the best fendering for the specific boat. No tools or equipment are required for installation other than cutting to length with a hand saw and there are no potentially hazardous fasteners involved. The device can also be used in conjunction with our Pile Rings. The whole product floats on the water and will maintain its precise fendering position relative to the boat in any state of tide.
