The fenders type 1242 are recommended for boats of 19m length or bigger.
A high quality fender made of UV-resistant PVC. The rope eyes consist of solid material. The valve is of metal. Each fender is being tested before it leaves the factory.
Fenders should protect your boat even under rough weather conditions. When deciding on the size, type and number of fenders please consider the shape of the hull, the weight of the boat and changing conditions. Sometimes a mix of spherical and cylindrical fenders might provide the best protection.
The stated dimensions of diameter, length or buoyancy are calculated at a pressure of 0,15 bar and a temperature of 20°C. This pressure should not be exceeded. Over inflation will weaken the fender and voids the warranty. Under tropical conditions the pressure has to be reduced by 0,05 - 0,06 bar. The use of a pressure gauge is recommended.
When used as floatation under the surface depending on the water depth we indicate the remaining buoyancy as follows:
10 m water depth = approx. 50 %; - 20 m = approx. 33 %; - 30 m = approx. 25 %; - 40 m = approx. 20 %; - 50 m = approx. 17 %; - 120 m approx. 7 %
- 55kg buoyancy
- 30cm diameter
- 113cm long
- For boats of 14-18m length
- 2 eyes, 28mm Ø
Cleaning: Soap and water, Vinyl cleaner or mineral spirits are suggested. In no case lacquer thinner or Acetone should be used as this would destroy the material and make the product useless.
