Two-piece Pile Ring offers flexible fit PRODUCTS & SERVICES Following the great success of its single and four-piece mooring systems, Marinaquip has introduced a new two-piece Pile Ring that can be installed at water level or under existing wharfs, jetties and other marine structures. The original designs, already widely in use, provide a solution for all-tide, monitor-free mooring during changing and unpredictable weather and sea states. There has, however, been a gap in the range for retrospective installation. The new and versatile two-piece product solves the problem and introduces a number of new and patent pending designs, materials, and features - including easy installation, stress-free hinges and flexible walls. Constructed using a long-life polymer compound, the product is highly flexible (unlike HDPE) and can withstand a tremendous amount of stress. Independent load tests have recorded 20 tonnes on the standard two-piece Pile Ring with no damage to product or materials. Mooring lines wrap around the Pile Ring, and thus around the piling, in a protected 50mm recess. As line-pull increases, the product compresses until the outer skin contacts the inner and the ultimate strength has been attained. Risk transfers to the integrity of the mooring line and the pile. The new design is practical, costeffective and recyclable. It is suitable for all manner of craft and floating equipment and is also finding favour in new markets. For example, Marinaquip is already in talks with major floating solar power specialists who require alltide moorings in very testing conditions.
