DAN-FENDER

There are three important factors when talking of quality in connection with fenders and buoys, namely the rope attachment (the eye), the valve and the “body” of the fender.

Consequently, for its Heavy-Duty products, DAN-FENDER has chosen to have massive injection-moulded eyes, which are the absolutely strongest eyes of the market. Likewise we have decided to use metal valves in stead of plastic valves, used in other brands. Our metal valve makes inflation of DAN-FENDER products easy and the air remains where it has to be – in the fender/buoy.

The production of fenders/buoys (rotation moulding) may result in the presence of small invisible air holes in the material, as a consequence of which the product cannot keep the air. In order to test this, all products are tested under water, prior to being delivered to our customers, as a guarantee of the fact that the products delivered will also function as intended. These hidden qualities offer safety to your boat and your fishing.

Correct use of Mooring Buoys

Buoys must be carefully chosen to carry the weight needed. If the buoy does not lie correctly in the water, the mooring will be unsatisfactory. The anchorchain must always be tied to the mooring loop under water. The anchorchain must never be tied to the upper lifting loop!

Fender and Buoy inflation

How do I inflate my DAN-FENDER ® product?

The most simple way is to use an ordinary compressor including the accessory air pistol and then:

  • Remove the plastic screw (if there is one).
  • Press the air pistol against the metal valve.
  • Blow air into the fender/buoy (0.15 bar at 20 degrees C).
  • A fender/buoy shall NOT be as hard as a stone. It shall be easy to form a soft “dent” by pressing.
  • Screw on the plastic screw (if there is one).
  • Now your fender/buoys are ready for use – have fun!

Brilliant! This is the word, which we very often hear about this unique patented product.

Fender Step™ has become a much larger success than we had expected, which is due to the design and the double function as both a fender and a step. Yachts are getting larger and larger, and it may be difficult to enter the boat without using a ladder or a similar thing. A ladder, however, is not very handy and it may scratch the boat, which is not the case when using Fender Step™. At the same time is it easy to find a place for it, as it does not require much space. Is also very useful if you have to enter a dinghy.

Perfect for boats with high topsides

Fender2step™ has been developed from our proven and very successful FenderStep but now provides an extra step which is really helpful not only for boats with very high topsides, but also on regular sized boats to allow children to safely get on and off and in making boarding from a dinghy even easier. Like FenderStep™ , it is easy to rig at any time, and importantly, BEFORE, entering a Marina, allowing the crew to safely and easily step ashore onto the pontoon, without resorting to leaping!

Product information:
This DanFender product is one of our strong products and it sells very well. This is first and foremost due to the quality, but also competitive prices compared to quality have make this product popular worlwide.

Remember to use the lower eye when you moor your boat to a mooring buoy. Thus the boat will always keep in contact with the anchor. The upper eye is only intended for lift of buoy and double safeguarding.

It is important not to use stainless steel together with galvanized iron, as it will start a galvanic corrosion, causing very quick breakdown / rusting through of the lower eye and the chain.
