"HOMAN HULL FRIENDLY" MOORING BUOYS

Island Mooring Supplies is offering three distinct styles of mooring buoys, ROPE NEST, FLAT TOP & TITAN.  If your mooring buoy isn’t soft, resilient, unsinkable, and collision survivable, maybe it is time to experience a Homan ‘Hull Friendly’ mooring buoy manufactured by IMS.

IMS typically manufactures its surface floatation buoys by using the following materials. A UV resistant schedule 40 or higher PVC tube is centered through a closed cell foam. The foam has a much lower moisture vapor transmission rate than most other floatation foams and as such will absorb an insignificant amount of water during long term immersion. The coating has good elongation and tensile strength properties making it very compatible with the resilient floatation foam. This combination of materials, construction and design makes Homan ‘Hull Friendly’ mooring buoys a welcomed addition to its innovative product offerings.

THE ROPE NEST

ROPE NEST: Our original ‘HULL FRIENDLY’ with integrated rope nest. its surface floatation buoys by using the following materials. A UV resistant schedule 40 or higher PVC tube is centered through a closed cell foam. The foam has a much lower moisture vapor transmission rate than most other floatation foams and as such will absorb an insignificant amount of water during long term immersion. The coating has good elongation and tensile strength properties making it very compatible with the resilient floatation foam.

THE FLAT-TOP

The surface of the FLAT-TOP floatation buoy uses the following materials. A UV resistant schedule 40 or higher PVC tube is centered through a closed cell foam. The foam has a much lower moisture vapor transmission rate than most other floatation foams and as such will absorb an insignificant amount of water during long term immersion. The coating has good elongation and tensile strength properties making it very compatible with the resilient floatation foam.

THE TITAN

THE TITAN has many of the same attributes as the original “HULL FRIENDLY ” mooring buoy such as line and mast buoy storage. The PVC fender is manufactured to be non-marking. The shell of the TITAN is composed of polyethylene while the foam is identical to other “HULL FRIENDLY ” mooring buoys and will not absorb any water. You will find the TITAN a welcomed addition to IMS line of moorimg buoys.
