air compression in outer air chamber.
Air compression plus contact with the internal
Air compression, internal foam core compression
and finally, total compression of the entire
Functioning in unison, the triple-absorbing
action of the Hurricane Fender eliminates the
sharp, violent shock encountered with simple
air cushioned fenders and the resulting damage
from “bottoming out”. Even if the
Hurricane Fender outer shell was split and inflation
totally lost from the air chamber, the inner
high-density foam core would never fail...it
simply cannot “bottom out!” The value
is obvious...for just pennies more than other
top-of-the-line fenders you can equip your vessel
with the best, the all new Jim Buoy Hurricane
HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION THROUGHOUT!
OUTER SHELL - The inflatable outer shell is
manufactured from the highest quality, virgin
marine vinyl to withstand the most constant,
severe use. The color is permanently impregnated
into the vinyl.
AIR VALVE SYSTEM - Only rust
and corrosion resistant industrial valves are
used to permit control
of internal air pressure. Pressure may be varied
from the normal 2 psi to suit individual requirements.
INNER CORE - Finest quality,
high density closed-cell foam, permanently sealed
within the outer vinyl
THRU HOLE - 5/8” I.D. heavy duty tubing,
molded in the inner foam core. Allows both horizontal
use against pilings, etc. and of course vertical
use against flat docks or other vessels.
