Manuplas Navigation and Marker Buoys 2018-11-13T13:39:42+00:00
Manuplas navigation buoy on location

 

Manuplas navigation and marker buoys are light-weight and low maintenance and have been used effectively for both offshore and in-shore navigation.

Navigation buoys

Manuplas IALA compliant navigation buoys are available in a range of diameters for both offshore and in-shore applications. Standard navigation buoys 2.0m – 3.0m are recommended for major channels and open seas. Seamless navigation buoys 1.2m – 2.0m are recommended for minor channels, harbours and sheltered waters.

Construction:

  • Thermolaminated Closed-Cell Polyethylene (PE) Foam core
  • Durable, flexible and abrasion resistant Polyurethane (PU) Elastomer Skin

Features:

  • A high visibility outer skin enhancing safety
  • Strong and durable
  • Low maintenance
  • Virtually unsinkable, therefore maximising service reliability
  • Fitted with lifting eyes for ease of installation
  • Configured with self-contained LED lights, radar reflector and top mark assembly as required

Marker buoys

Manuplas design and manufacture a range of IALA compliant marker buoys.  There are 10 different configurations available as standard which range form 0.6m – 1.5m diameter. Manuplas marker buoys are ideally suited for marinas, lakes, inner harbours and sheltered water locations.

Construction:

  • The hull / daymark core construction is closed cell rigid expanded polystyrene or resilient thermolaminated polyethylene foam
  • The hull / daymark skin construction is a polyurethane elastomer skin as standard
  • Can be configured with either a pad eye or through hole for mooring
  • All metal work hot dip galvanised
  • Options available:  Self-contained led lights, radar reflector and top mark

Features:

  • Lightweight design enables quick and easy transportation and installation
  • Low maintenance
  • Virtually unsinkable, therefore maximising service reliability
  • Highly impact absorbent materials reduces the likelihood of damage to the buoy
  • Can be fitted with lifting eyes for ease of installation
  • Configured with self-contained LED lights, radar reflector and top mark assembly as required
  • Optional customer graphics for enhanced identification
