How to use fenders and buoys
Fenders are designed for protection of your boat. Fenders are placed on the spots where the boat can contact another boat or dock by movement. Well placed the fender will protect your boat for damage.
The size of the needed fender depends on the size of the boat. On average six fenders are needed for good protection. Our fenders and buoys require minimal maintenance. Wash them with clean water and if dirty with water and soap.
With proper use, the fenders can protect your boat for more than forty years.
Easy inflation and deflation
In all our fenders and buoys we use an unique strong brass valve for easy inflation and deflation. The best way to inflate a fender is pushing air pressure from a compressor with a flat head against the valve and the fender will inflate.
It is also possible to inflate the fender with a bicycle and/or car pump with the special adaptor. Please do not use a handset with a pin to inflate, because this pin can damage the valve. The best inflation pressure is 0.2 bar.
This is the pressure where it is possible to press the body of the fender visible easy with your flat hand. For deflating just push a pen slightly in the valve to let the air out. Due to extreme whether conditions the air pressure in the fender can change.
We advise to check the pressure and shape of your fenders.
You can replace the valve with turning in a bolt M3 (or a woodscrew) and pull it out with a pair of tongs. After inspecting you can push a valve back in the tube with your hand or a pen.
