Although boat dock bumpers are rarely intended to be noticed, the FEND-ALL FA 300 heavy duty 90 degree fender is a product that stands out. Made from advanced materials and designed to withstand the environment of the marina, this boat dock bumper provides years of lasting value at an affordable price, as well as lending a degree of beauty to the structures it protects. Bumpers for marinas and slips are made of a variety of materials, and while the expense can sometimes seem daunting, it is important to choose the best option that you can afford, to prevent damage both to boats and to the structure of the marina itself.
FEND-ALL stands apart from its competition in the industry by virtue of not only its materials but also its design. The FEND-ALL FA 300 heavy duty 90 degree fender is made of a specialized material unique to the company’s products, developed over a long period of trial and testing. The special form of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) used in FEND-ALL boat dock bumpers is designed to resist marring and to hold up to all of the elements and harsh chemicals that the environment can throw at it: oil, gasoline, salt, water, and even marine boring creatures will not degrade the material of this bumper. The material has a brittle point of -7 degrees Fahrenheit and a melting point of 351 degrees F. FEND-ALL® fenders are trademarked, patented and have a life expectancy of 10+ years.
The design characteristics of this product are also important. FEND-ALL boat dock bumpers are all specially designed to absorb the energy of impact and stretch rather than break. They are the only continuously supported, double-wall fenders available on the market with a unique internal high-energy absorption web capable of 250+% extension. The clever and patented design of this particular bumper makes it easy to install, either vertically or horizontally, in order to prevent damage to vessels from protruding corners and bulkheads.
When it comes to boat dock bumper, there are a great many options available on the market. There are important characteristics to consider, including price and long-term value, as well as durability and suitability of materials. Available in standard lengths of 10’ and 12’, and in two colors (black and white), the FEND-ALL FA 300 90 degree heavy duty fender will protect vessels of a variety of sizes. The product is designed not only to protect boats from damage—as well as the structures of the marina—but also to lend a clean, aesthetic appearance to any structure it is attached to. Another important feature of this boat dock fender is the fact that it is easy to install; a feature that all FEND-ALL products boast, and a founding principle of the company’s work.
When considering the features that must be included in a marina, objects like bumpers tend to take a secondhand consideration to other more visible amenities. But ensuring that the vessels moored at a slip will avoid damage is one of the more important services that a marina can offer. With superior materials that stand up to years of abuse from the elements, the FEND-ALL FA 300 is a great investment for anyone looking to purchase boat dock fenders. The company prides itself on a three-year warranty on all of its products, though the lifetime of this and other FEND-ALL units can exceed ten years, and all of its items are made in the USA. For lasting value and beauty in a boat dock fender, to prevent damage from sharp corners, this product is an excellent investment to make.
