Since the end of January the new LE-V fender system is mounted and ready to use for the new Lifeboat Institution in Falsterbo.
A cold January day the raft was ready to use for mounting the fenders. The choice of marine fender system was LE-V fender, which has two rubber legs mounted with a shield of UHMW-PE. The rubber leg for optimal energy absorption and the low friction shield to glide on. As there are tide difference in the Falsterbo channel it is important that the boat can glide sufficient when moored.
Now we wish them good luck! If you are interested in Lifeboat Institution you can read more for example on Royal Nation Lifeboat Institution – Saving Lives at Sea.
