There are some kinds of damage to your boat or yacht that are difficult to avoid; no matter how careful you are, accidents can happen. However, an important way you can minimize the risk of damage to your boat is with high quality marine dock fenders. The Fend Off heavy duty dock fender is exactly what you need to prevent damage to your boat in berth for many different situations.
Our bumpers are designed to provide a protective barrier between hard surfaces such as docks, seawalls, or pilings and the hulls of boats and yachts. Dock bumpers for boats can be made from a variety of materials ranging from rubber to foam, vinyl to PVC and plastic. Fend Off bumpers are made of flexible PVC with recycled plastic lumber mounting. The heavy duty dock fender has a PVC shell with spun polyester fiber and attached to 4×4 recycled plastic lumber. The fasteners are 316 stainless steel full annular ring shank nails.
Our heavy duty dock fender is suitable for boats and yachts up to 125’ in length; it is available in either white or black, and in standard lengths including 6’, 8’, 10’, and 12’. We also have custom fenders available upon request—call for a quote.
When it comes to dock bumpers for boats, materials matter. Our heavy duty dock fender is made to withstand all of the stresses of the elements while providing the maximum protection to your boat, to prevent damage to your hull in berth. Our UV stabilized PVC is made to tolerate everything that the environment can throw at it; it is resistant to marring, and impervious to water, oil, gasoline, salt, and marine boring creatures. Fend Off dock fenders are made to last—the spun polyester fiber inside is resistant to damage from the elements just as the shell is, and the recycled plastic lumber mounting is tough and durable.
Recycled plastic lumber makes a great material for dock fender mountings not only because it is durable enough to withstand the elements, but also because it does not have the drawbacks of other materials often put to use. Recycled plastic dock lumber does not contain the preservatives and additives that lumber and other types of materials use—therefore it won’t leech toxins into the water or environment over time. It also reduces the pollutants associated with virgin plastic production, and provides a use for the already-created plastic in the world that goes to recycling centers daily. It is nearly immune to splintering and breaking, and it can absorb a great deal of stress without taking any damage—a very important feature in a fender.
It is important to make sure that you use the right kind of dock bumpers for boats for a number of reasons; the most important is that inadequate protection leads to damage to your boat. The Fend Off heavy duty dock fender is great for a range of berth situations, suitable for protecting your hull from taking damage from a variety of hard surfaces. While many boats are relatively easy to repair, the cost for fixing scratches and gouges to the hull of your boat adds up quickly. It makes sense to protect your investment with marine dock bumpers that will last for a long time.
