long fenders are proving to be our most popular. Their long length is useful in
many situations, yet they're easy to store. They are
available in the original
heavy duty started in 2001, and in a newer standard duty version, designed for hanging
horizontally, with easy handling and a lower price. The improved
handling comes from a lighter weight and multiple attachment loops
along one side, so they're easier to carry and
particularly great for raft ups.
situations, having one long fender
can be safer and easier to position than using smaller multiple ones.
One example is as a replacement for fender board arrangements where a
is used horizontally to span several vertical fenders. The arrangement
is not only difficult to store but the fenders can often work their way
out of position. Extra long Easystow
are 5 feet long, fold up for easy storing, and reduce three
or more components down to one. The design allows them to
hang horizontally without rolling.
Another use is as dock
and post fenders. Used horizontally along docks makes docking in
a slip safer and easier. As we all know, sometimes entering your slip
doesn't go exactly as planned. One customer, after the
water level dropped, attached several fenders to 2x6s, then hung them into position, spanning the
dock posts. Used vertically on a post their longer length can help cover tide
Attachment loops are polyester webbing rated at 4500 lbs for
plenty of chafe resistance. The HD versions have 3 loops at
each end, the standard duty has 4 loops along one side.
They're easy to tie or hook to, but they can also be screwed
through for more permanent attachments to wood docks.
long fenders have even been used along gunwales of dinghies and row
boats to provide added flotation and stability. All extra long fenders
are 5 feet long. They're
constructed the same as all Easystow Fenders with a liner to
hold the air inside fender material to take the abuse. The material is
reinforced so if you try to push in one area,
another area can't over-expand like un-reinforced material would in such a long
length. So they support more load. They can be pumped up firmer then
standard fenders and will support more pressure.
as all Easystow Fenders, they have a 60 day full
refund less shipping and are warranted against manufacturers defects
for as long as you own them.
