Marine equipment expert Polyform U.S. original presents pear-shaped inflatable fenders of the A series. For boats up to 14 meters long, they offer A4 series Polyform fenders with a diameter of 55 cm. These fenders will reliably protect the sides, stern and bow of the boat during mooring maneuver or when passing through the lock chamber and will allow you to avoid collision damage when docked side-by-side with neighboring boats.
Polyform U.S. original provides a wide range of side protection, including rounded board-tied fenders. Here are the features and benefits of A4 series polyform fenders:
- monolithic head has a metal reinforcement in the eye and around the circumference;
- all connected surfaces are treated additionally with a special adhesive;
- the inflated part has thickened fabrics;
- polymeric material is made from an alloy designed for marine use that withstands high mechanical stress without damage, and is resistant to prolonged exposure to the UV radiation and ocean salt water;
- the product does not require special maintenance because it does not rot, mold, collect fungus or algae.
A4 series Polyform fenders are available in two colors - orange and white. These are the main marine signaling colors. Therefore, all A-series fenders can also be used as signal or mooring buoys. For example, when carrying out underwater activity or when organizing deadweight anchorage.
The fender design includes a blue head with a reinforced eye and an inflatable part made of a soft polymer alloy. The walls have sufficient and equal thickness, which eliminates the ruptures during inflation or collision at thinnest points. Follow the recommended pressure levels and check it regularly, and you will have no problems with these models.
If you buy it to use as a mooring buoy, it will be perfectly visible from afar. It will not be difficult to get it out of the water with the help of a gaff hook.
As protection the A4 series Polyform U.S. fenders Ø 55 cm can be used on the sides of the boat. The pear-shaped shape allows them to reliably protect the bow of the boat. Can be hung from the stern if the vessel is moored astern in the marina.
On the sides, one fender should be attached for every 2.5-3 meters of the length of the boat. In the bow, they are attached on both sides. Mounting round fenders on the transom is preferred in marinas where mooring is done stern-to and the region is characterized by tidal waves and rip currents.
Before you buy A4 series Polyform fenders, think over your travel plan and take into account mooring methods (bow-to, side-on or stern-to), mooring conditions (pole, at the pier, at a stationary anchor) and the possibility of passing old narrow lock chambers.
