Products Boat fender
The fender shows how PVC plastic gives an excellent protection against the agressive sea environment with saltwater and sunlight.

The air filled fender protects the side of the ship when mooring. The large material thickness means that the fender can resist large forces and rude treatments. The large thickness can be achieved thanks the use of rotation moulding process.
