In order to prevent damage, scratches, and unwanted dents, it is essential to equip your boat with fender profiles capable of protecting and preserving it from potential accidental collisions with dockside, piers, and other vessels. Osculati's online catalog offers various types and models of fender profiles to suit every need, along with functional accessories for proper installation and use.The fender profile, along with the rub rail, serves as the "bumper" to protect the hull and can be described as the support that "holds up" the protective rubber (the rub rail). It should be correctly installed on the gunwale and, in addition to its goal of safeguarding the vessel from potential impacts, helps conceal the aesthetically unattractive joint between the hull and deck. Their installation is crucial because it is not possible to predict and avoid accidental mishaps solely through the sometimes improper use of fender buoys. Having a fixed support will help prevent the unpredictability of the sea and distractions for other boaters.Modern materials used to produce fender profiles make them lightweight and easy to handle while ensuring high quality and durability. These supports must be sufficiently elastic to be mounted as a belt on the vessel without losing strength and reliability. Osculati offers well-crafted models made with the most innovative materials in the field of boating: stainless steel or anodized aluminum profiles capable of withstanding all weather conditions and with a PVC base to absorb impacts effectively.Protective elements like fender profiles and fender buoys are not mutually exclusive. It is of paramount importance to perfectly coordinate the simultaneous use of both to avoid unpleasant and costly surprises.
