In the A series Polyform U.S. features multifunctional pear-shaped inflatable fenders that can be used for bow and stern protection, as well as a mooring or signal buoy.
The two-tone fender made of thickened polymer alloy has a reinforced blue head. The inflatable part, depending on the series, is painted in orange or white colors - classic for marine signaling.
These fenders are perfect for following tasks:
- protection of the sides of the boat, since they provide the necessary shock-absorbing and damping effect in case of a collision with the quay wall or the side of another vessel;
- protecting the bow of the boat due to its pear shape and sufficient diameter;
- protection of the stern if mooring is carried out astern;
- organization of dead weight anchorage.
Round inflatable fenders of this diameter and height are suitable for boats up to 10 meters long. They can be positioned both on the sides and to protect the bow or on the transom when mooring astern, as is customary in many Mediterranean marinas.
Manufacturer Polyform U.S. original is one of the leading suppliers of marine equipment around the world, in particular, boat side protection for maneuvering, during anchorage or passing through narrow channels, for example, when locking.
Fenders of the A3 series consist of a monolithic part in blue and an inflatable part in white or orange. These colors are not chosen by chance, since the pear-shaped inflatable fender can also be successfully used as a mooring buoy on a stationary anchor.
The monolithic part is reinforced with a metal ring and is securely connected to the inflatable part made of a soft "marine" polymer alloy. Evenly thickened walls guarantee the integrity of the fender when the ship's side hits the quay wall, the side of another ship or the lock chamber’s wall.
Taking on the maximum part of the impact force, the A series Polyform fender simultaneously exhibits the qualities of a damper, reducing the amplitude of the boat's rocking. Gradually, the boat sways less and less, and the force of impacts is significantly reduced along with the risk of damage.
Pear-shaped inflatable fenders can be combined with cylindrical fenders. Fasten pear-shaped fenders on the nose and stern combined with cylindrical ones on the sides.
