Aluminium Fender with Black PVC Insert - 28.5mm x 14.8mm (3.65m)
This aluminium fender, also known as a rub rail, is 28.5mm wide by 14.8mm high and comes supplied as a 3.65 metre length. Aluminium fenders are ideal for protecting your boat or other marine vessel from bumps or knocks in the event of impact. Although commonly used within the marine industry, these fenders are ideal for other industrial settings such as docking bays and factories.This fender comes supplied with a black PVC insert to cover the screws or rivets once the fender has been secured to your vessel. Unlike other materials, PVC is non-marking and will not leach colour onto your boat or other surface.To fit this fender, position the end approximately 1.8 metres from the bow and line up the fender with the gunnel. Drill and secure with self-tapping screws or rivets every 225-300mm. For tight bends it is advisable to put wire in the corners of the internal grooves to prevent the fender collapsing and hindering the fitting of the insert.
