Designed for aggressive environments
Patented composite polymer banding and buckle system
Non-corrosive, non-destructive piling solutions and protection for modern marinas.
Current trends for modern Marina longevity are not only aesthetic but based on the long term protection of fixed and floating infrastructure and hardware. In order to update and upgrade, modern piling installations and refurbishments are increasingly moving toward Polyethylene “sleeving” and “Composite” solutions. Marina managers and operators in turn wish to protect these valuable investments and newly improved environments with the introduction of higher standards for fixtures and fittings upon the pilings..
Designed for marina environments
A range of rust proof, high strength, hanging, fixing and mounting solutions
Marinaquip’s range of MarinaMounts are the perfect accompaniment for Smart ® Band and Smart ® Tie solutions.
Marinaquip was initially asked to find a solution for attaching Rope Hangers to a new and sleeved pile installation without penetrating the sleeve and potentially harming the steel interior or ruining the appearance of the new pilings.
We chose HCL Smart ® Band and Smart ® Tie to secure our highly cost-effective and custom designed UHMWPE Marinaquip Rope Hangers to the pilings and we are now supplying these extensively and with great success.
Since the initial Rope Hanger product design was adopted we have now introduced a number of other mounting solutions which include: the D Mount; the Satellite Dish Mount; and a Flat Fixing Plate.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us for custom solutions.
