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.

Item

Considerations

Non-metal Mooring Buoys

Traditional Steel Mooring Buoys

1.

Rusty and Worn Out

A Non-Metal (EVA / Polyurea) Mooring Buoy will never get rusty and worn out, the top and bottom Mooring Rings and/or its Middle Structure are made of 304 Stainless Steel, no painting is required, the chance of getting rusty and worn out is much less than normal steel.

A Steel Mooring Buoys and its top and bottom Mooring Rings will require continuous maintenance in terms of anti-rust / anti-fouling painting and repairing.

2.

Pulling Forces

Bearing of all pulling forces directly 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 mooring chain and maintain 50 % stays afloat on the surface as required.

Bearing of all pulling forces among the cylindrical steel structure of the Mooring Buoy. In case of aging or lack of maintenance, it may be creaked, holed, sunk or pulled apart during a heavy storm.

3.

Collision

The cylindrical body of a Non-metal Mooring Buoy is made of high density EVA inside and sprayed with Polyurea outside, that is a soft and high abrasive material, the impact force will be much reduced due to its soft material and light weight.

Damages to the Buoy and the Boat even in minor collision.

4.

Weight

A Non-metal Mooring Buoy of One meter in Diameter weights 120 Kg. The Mooring Buoy's material are light-weight, long lasting and maintenance free.

A Steel Mooring Buoy of One meter in Diameter weights about 550 Kg. The Mooring Buoy's material are heavy steel, in case of aging/damages (cracked and holed) it will sink, unless it had been filled with Styrofoam inside (Additional procedures and costs required).

5.

Buoyancy

The weight of a 25 mm mooring chain at a length of 14 - 17 meters is more than 200 Kg (downward force). In order to maintain 50 % of the Mooring Buoy stays afloat on the surface as required, a Non-metal Mooring Buoy of One meter in Diameter only needs 0.8 meter in Height to offset the downward forces and maintain 0.4 meter stays afloat on the surface.

In order to maintain 50 % of the Mooring Buoy stays afloat on the surface, a Steel Mooring Buoy of One meter in Diameter needs about 1.2 meter in Height to offset the downward force and maintain 0.6 meter stays afloat on the surface.

6.

Maintenance and Durability

A Non-Metal Mooring Buoy will never get rusty, worn out and is very light-weight, over a period of time, when marine barnacles found on the surface and underneath of a Non-metal Mooring Buoy, it can be easily flipped over 90 degree on the surface and cleaned in place without removal and repainting. A Non-Metal Mooring Buoy is long lasting and maintenance free, it may last for at least 10 years under normal usage.

Over a period of time, when rusty and marine barnacles found on the surface and underneath of a Steel Mooring Buoy, additional costs will be required for removal, cleaning, repairing, repainting and replacement. Even under reasonable good maintenance, a Steel Mooring Buoy may only last for 5 - 7 years.
