General Surface Support Buoys

General Surface Support Buoys are manufactured from a polyethylene thermo-laminated foam core encapsulated within a self-colored polyurethane outer skin. They are used extensively in single point mooring (SPM) systems.

All General Surface Support Buoys have a flotation core manufactured from resilient closed cell PE foam, thermo-laminated around internal steelwork and encapsulated within a tough, abrasion resistant polyurethane elastomers skin.

Resilient Closed Cell PE Foam

Use of a closed cell PE foam core ensure the buoy will not absorb water even if the skin is punctured, increasing the lifespan of the product and reducing maintenance costs. The resilient material makes the buoys self fendering with a high impact absorption capacity.

Abrasion Resistant Polyurethane Elastomers Skin

The durable and flexible polyurethane elastomer is self colored and does not attract marine growth. It is resistant to both abrasion and ultra violet degradation.

Internal Steelwork

Through central steel tube with longitudinal gussets and external load distribution flanges at each end, epoxy coated or hot-dipped galvanized, are encased in a closed-cell PE foam central body.

The three main types of support buoy are:

Cylindrical Buoy (CB)
  • Removable clevis plate/eye.
  • Central tension member designed to suit the client’s Safe Working Load.
Chain-Through Buoy (CTB)
  • Central tube for chain to pass through.
  • Chain locking device, on one end or both, securing the buoy to the chain.
Pick-Up Buoy (PU)
  • pick-up buoys are used for mooring, marker and pick-up duties.

 

Options

Optional bail eye, clevis eye, swivel, chain locking plate, single locking pin end fitting are available.
