Navigation Buoys

Demarcate a variety of marine areas -

UV-stabilized virgin polyethylene solutions

for high UV weather conditions.

 

The products are successfully being used to demarcate a variety of marine areas, such as waterways, marinas, rivers, port entrances, including estuary, ocean and offshore locations.

They can be customized with mould-in graphics, solar lanterns/panels, signage, radar reflectors or monitoring systems. They are highly visible, conform to IALA guidelines, and most importantly, designed for harsh UV environments such as the Middle East, using the highest quality UV-stabilized virgin polyethylene.

The Navigation and Floating Buoys are designed to seamlessly connect with other marine demarcation barriers.

Ecobarrier is a proud Industrial Member of IALA.

Navigation Buoys

Ecobarrier Navigation Buoys

The 750 mm navigation buoy (pictured above on the left side) is ideal for nearshore and sheltered areas, and has the highest focal plane height of any other buoy in its category.

Six more navigation buoys were recently added to the existing range, suitable for nearshore, ocean and offshore locations, including 1,250mm diameter buoys (pictured on the right side).

All buoys are manufactured from strong, durable UV-stabilized virgin polyethylene, and filled with closed-cell polyurethane foam to maintain floatation in case outer shell is ruptured.
