JIM BUOY JUMBO FLOATS

IM 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, some reinforced with nylon mesh) 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. Models up to 24″ diameter feature a 1″ thru-hole that provides easy access for tethering while the larger models are furnished with a specially designed “end cap” that incorporates a 5/8”or 1-1/4”shaft and galvanized steel rope swivel for maximum strength at this critical area of stress.
