Also known as a mooring noray, these are short columns with rounded tops that are fitted to the edge of docks. AISTER bollards are manufactured from marine-grade corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy and come in two models (BL-15 and BL-20), designed to be installed on concrete docks using Hilti expansion joints or chemical anchoring with a threaded rod. With breaking loads of 15 and 20 tonnes, the models are designed to withstand the docking of large ships. All our bollards undergo polyester resin treatment, allowing customers to choose the colour of the accessories for their marina.
When most people hear the word bollard, they immediately think of the small, round posts made from stone or iron that are used in cities to prevent parking or stop vehicles from entering a certain area. However, when it comes to the sea, bollards are used for something else: security and mooring. Two properties required by ships at any dock in the world. As such, bollards form an essential part of sports, fishing and commercial harbours, just like cleats. These two conventional mooring systems are used to ensure a boat is fixed to the dock in a solid and secure way.
