DESIGN, SUPPLY AND INSTALLATION OF BOAT MOORING SYSTEMS
The weaknesses of the traditional Steel Mooring Buoys are rusty, worn out and bearing of all pulling forces among the cylindrical structure of the Mooring Buoy. In case of aging and/or collision, the Steel Mooring Buoys will be creaked, holed, sunk or pulled apart during a heavy storm.
The idea of Non-metal (EVA / Polyurea) Mooring Buoys either with Stainless Steel Middle Shaft or Through Chain is to remove the stress (pulling forces) from the cylindrical structure of the Mooring Buoy, thus, all the pulling forces will be directly taken over by the middle shaft or mooring chain and the mooring lines to the Boat, the Mooring Buoy itself only acts as a floatation unit to support the weight of the mooring chain and maintain 50 % stays afloat on the surface as required.
With the high technology support and availability of new material nowadays, the new designed Non-metal Mooring Buoys are made with high density Ethylene-co-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) inside and sprayed with several coats of Polyurea outside, while the top and bottom Mooring Rings and/or the Middle Structure are made by 304 Stainless Steel. The Non-metal Mooring Buoys really overcome most of the previous problems on Steel Mooring Buoys and significantly reduce the on-going maintenance costs.
Non-metal Mooring Buoys are available in two versions: Middle Shaft Version (Stainless steel Middle Shaft with top and bottom Mooring Rings) and Through Chain Version (The Mooring Buoy with hollow structure that allow the Chain to go through). Despite the weight and size of a Non-metal Mooring Buoy is much less than a Steel Mooring Buoy under the same circumstance, a Non-metal Mooring Buoy is more light-weight, long lasting (10 years under normal usage) and maintenance free for long term operation.
The cost of making a Non-metal (EVA / Polyurea) Mooring Buoy is very compatible to those Steel Mooring Buoys that are required to fill with Styrofoam inside and fully covered with Fiberglass outside, size and type of the Non-metal Mooring Buoy can be tailor made to suit individual requirement.
KKCL is also a Supplier for Mooring Components, such as Mooring Chains, Swivels, Shackles and Concrete Sinkers etc. and is more than capable to supply and install the complete set of Mooring System to meet your Boat requirement. Sample of the Non-metal Mooring Buoy is available at our Warehouse at Aberdeen, HK for your inspection and hand-on experience.
A comparison of the Non-metal Mooring Buoys with the Traditional Steel Mooring Buoys bellow give a full picture of your requirement in obtaining or renewal of Mooring Buoys.
