SB-1500 is a product of Tideland’s continued development of higher performance, low maintenance, costeffective
multi-purpose buoys for use in all marine environments. The unique design of this buoy allows it
to be deployed in a wide variety of applications that include shallow water, channel edges, rivers up to 6
knots current, deep harbours and fast current tidal zones.
• UV-STABILISED POLYETHYLENE – Rotationally
moulded to form a seamless body, 9.5mm
thick, able to withstand knocks and/or
collision. Through a unique mould design and
a controlled process, an increased thickness
is formed at major stress points. This rugged
material is abrasion resistant and repels
marine growth, eliminating costly sandblasting
• LONG-TERM STRENGTH – SB-1500 is quipped
with a galvanised steel mooring and lifting eye
and the complete assembly is removable for
inspection. SB-1500 buoy is EPS foam filled to
prevent significant water ingress in event of a
puncture. As with all Sentinel® buoys, minor
punctures are on-station repairable.
• STABILITY – SB-1500 is ideal for use in currents
up to 6 knots. The unique keel and hull system
with 160kg (350lb) of internal ballast keeps
the buoy stable, upright and tracking.
• MATCHING OR ALTERNATING COLOURS –
SB-1500 is available in all recommended IALA
colours, including cardinal and bifurcation
markings, with optional IALA recommended
topmarks and daymarks.
