duty models are the original Easystow Fenders® and have proven
themselves since 2001. They have been around the world multiple times, survived
all kinds of weather and found some very unique uses.
Apparently seals like them too.
most unique feature of the heavy duty fenders is the
material is actually
a one piece extruded tube. The fiber reinforcement in the
material is continuous
for greater strength and there is no longitudinal seam to catch or split like
other fabricated fenders. Customers also report the
thick material is softer then most fenders so they're easier on boat topsides.
Because the material is
reinforced, they don't balloon like cheap fenders. For storage, they
lay flat, folded or rolled.
end has 3 attachment points for hanging vertically or
horizontally. Fenders can also be tied together using the
side loops to create a more stable cushion and help hold
position. One customer reported using this method in New
York harbor during hurricane Isabel in 2003.
tough are they? Another customer used a FH1244 to lift his generator to
replace worn motor mounts. There was no way to lift the generator from
above and a standard jack wouldn't fit under it.
