Giant Marine Fenders

A NEW GENERATION IN GIANT MARINE FENDERS!

IT'S HARD NOT TO BE IMPRESSED WITH JIM BUOY'S NEW LINE OF SUPER GIANT MARINE FENDERS!

Not an inflatable but a 98% closed-cell inner foam core that will never blow-out or sink - even bullet holes will not materially affect its function! Often referred to in the industry as the "hull saver", Jim Buoy's unique design is not simply a roll of foam but is a carefully crafted, quality product incorporating the same U.S. Coast Guard Approved foam used in the Jim-Buoy Industrial Life Preservers. The end product is a rugged fender that provides "stop-gap" compression when hard hit time after time; not only protecting the ship from damage but the dock and even the fender itself!

HIGHLY RESISTANT TO ABRASIONS AND PUNCTURES.

Encased in an outer covering of "Elastomic Skin" (up to 5/16" thick material) plus a urethane skin base, the Jim Buoy Giant Marine Fenders are extremely resilient and able to flex with the rigors of high energy berthing over and over again, providing the user with extended service under all conditions. All Models may be mounted vertically or float horizontally. All Models feature a 1 1/4" thru-hole that provides easy access for tethering.

UNBEATABLE DESIGN FEATURES!

The diagram at left clearly shows the many advanced design features found in Jim Buoy's new Giant Marine Fenders - proven features gained from Jim Buoy's many years of experience in the manufacture of high quality marine products!

 

Installation Tips - Fenders vertically when coming along side another ship or dock allowing the line from the lower end of the Fender to be free. After the ship's lines are secure, pull the Fender to a horizontal position. Use additional Fenders during rough weather.

Repair Service - If your fender is damaged by misuse or eventual "wear and tear", arrangements may be made for Jim Buoy to recondition them to near-new condition and return to owner as needed - please inquire for complete details.
