The SB-2.2 is Tideland’s latest addition to its range of buoy products. With over 57 years of experience,
Tideland is able to offer varying solutions for specific customer requirements. This unique buoy utilises
the latest materials in float construction. The design is rugged with exceptional performance and is
designed for minimal maintenance and long life.
• TOUGH POLYETHYLENE float sections form
the heart of the buoy. Colour pigment is
compounded into virgin polyethylene which is
further enhanced by Tideland’s unique, UV15
stabilizer. Results are outstanding in terms
of colour retention and physical strength
that resists damage. Unique mould design
and control process ensure a homogeneous
profile with an increased thickness in high
stress areas. This polyethylene also assists in
repelling marine growth.
• A SINGLE COUNTER WEIGHT manufactured
from cast steel, is fixed to the base by a
strong, yet simple, technique. This allows
counterweight attachment within minutes
during buoy deployment.
• HULL FRAME is manufactured from galvanised
steel and is fitted with two lifting eyes and
two mooring eyes. The design allows each of
the hull sections to be easily fitted and quickly
replaced if damaged. As an option, the hull
frame is also available in stainless steel.
• TOP SUPERSTRUCTURE comprises a simple
galvanized frame with an integral ladder, man
guard and support plate for lanterns and
lantern guards. There are also pre-designed
holes for mounting solar panels and battery
boxes in the base. Options include painting
the superstructure to match hull float
sections, as well as a stainless steel version.
