SB-2200P Sentinel®, a larger patented version of the extremely successful SB-98P, is Tideland Signal’s
newest generation of large sea buoys. This buoy’s patented hull, lifting and mooring eye system, and its
twin-keel design, bring together two decades of experience in providing worldwide, on-station alternatives
to steel and GRP buoys.
The SB-2200P modular design is ideal for use in open seas, exposed channels and harbours, and its twin
keel provides superior performance in currents up to 6 knots. SB-2200P is a direct replacement for most
steel ocean buoys.
• UV-STABILISED POLYETHYLENE – Rotationally
moulded for a tough 12mm thick body with
increased thickness for reinforcement at stress
points. The polyethylene material is abrasion
resistant, shock absorbing, impact resistant, and
able to withstand collisions at sea. In addition,
it repels marine growth. Colour pigment is
impregnated throughout, eliminating the need for
repeated, costly sandblasting and painting.
• MODULAR CONSTRUCTION – A float section,
middle superstructure section and top navaid
section form the SB-2200P buoy. In the event of
damage, individual sections can be easily replaced
on the deck of a buoy tender at sea.
• MATCHING OR ALTERNATING COLOURS –
Bifurcation buoys easily can be made, either
red or green as needed. Cardinal buoys can be
assembled using the same method with yellow
and black sections. Fairway or Safe Water buoys
are produced using a process of colour graphics,
resulting in red and white vertical striping. Wreck
marker buoys use the same process, resulting in
blue and yellow vertical striping.
