The future of the fender is here in the UK exclusive to Arthur Beale
The first telescopic boat fender that doesn't squeak, leaves no streaks, is re-cycable and also space saving due to its telescopic nature
Originally invented to reduce the amount of space fenders take up on board - the pop fender offers so many other benefits too:
the use of more environmentally friendly material
Non-toxic and recyclable
Individual parts can be re-ordered if required
No squeaking on the boat
Use under water possible
Washable at 65° in the dishwasher
- Made in Germany & Austria
Before each delivery, each POP fender is oiled by hand with thier care product and is subject to a visual inspection
The Pop Fender is a fender with perfect functionality manufactured in Germany and Austria, from more environmentally friendly materials.
Small & Compact
The POP Fender is telescopic from 620mm to 250mm on both sides. The POP Fender is therefore smaller than ANY other fender.
The POP Fender material TPV does not contain plasticizers and therefore does not squeak. There is also less streaking.
Operation under water
The POP Fender is the first fender that can be used under water. It can float naturally because the material has a density of 0.92kg/dm³, making it lighter than water.
The use under water is only suitable for 2 to 3 days.
POP Fender is a telescoping boat fender for recreational boating. It doesn’t need to be inflated and works like a spring. The purpose of it is to protect against damage to the outer shell of a ship during port manoeuvres, as well as when mooring at the quay wall, at jetties or in a parcel (ship to ship).
What makes POP Fender so unique and special?
It is compact, non-toxic & recyclable and does not squeak. You can even choose your own color, streaks and discolorations are easy to remove. It is maintenance-free, easy to clean and its use under water for 2 to 3 days is also another advantage.
POP Fender has been tried and tested on inland waterways by a large number of amateur captains, who together can draw on over 300 years of experience.
POP Fender contains no toxic PVC and no plasticizers that are harmful to the environment. In order to maintain its technical and optical properties, we recommend regular surface care with the original POP Fender Premium care product, which helps to preserve the surface finish. The surface of the POP Fender is matt. Please note that the white POP Fenders require a lot of care – just like classic white fenders.
Size when in use: ø165mm x 620mm
Stow size: ø165mm x 250mm
Compact - telescopic from 620 to 250mm on both sides
POP Fender ø165 x 250/620mm has a net weight of 1.38kg.
POP Fender ø165 x 250/620mm is suitable for boats with a maximum mass of 3000kg. It is at your discretion whether your circumstances meet the technical requirements.
Is POP Fender suitable for my boat?
We recommend the same handling as with classic fenders. There is a summary below (“Number of fenders according to boat length”) which can be used as a guide.
Please note that none of the other suppliers list a corresponding boat weight, however we do.
|Reference||Boat length||Diameter||Number of fenders|
|12 nautical miles||6,1-7,6m||150-170mm||6|
|SRP||up to 10m||–||6|
|POP Fender||up to 3000kg||up to 3000kg||4-8|
Many customers use the POP Fender ø165 x 250/620mm on much heavier boats – particularly in areas where a small fender is sufficient. In these instances it is up to your judgment to decide for yourself whether the POP Fender is sufficient to ensure safety.
What material is the POP Fender made of?
The basis for a high-quality product begins with the choice of materials. We had six materials from different manufacturers tested in the laboratory. Based on this knowledge, we decided to go with TPV SANTROPENE, which is also the most reputable. SANTROPENE’s TPV has been tried and tested in the automotive industry for over 40 years. Features and characteristics of TPV SANTROPENE are:
- Application for sealing lines
- UV aging, ozone and weathering resistance
- Chemical and oil resistance
- High resilience over a wide temperature range
- High bending fatigue strength
- High thermal and electrical insulation values
- Weight reduction through the redesign of components compared to thermoset rubber
- Colorability – metallic, photochromic/thermochromic effects
- Aesthetics – options for surface, feel and look
The POP Fender should be disassembled and cleaned annually
Coarse stains or dirt have to be removed by hand before placing the POP Fender in the dishwasher at up to 65°C. Use commercially available detergents or tabs.
You can also use very fine sandpaper (grain=220) to remove very coarse streaks, scratches and discolorations by sanding them lightly beforehand.
Air drying is recommended after cleaning in the dishwasher. POP Fender is not suitable for drying in a microwave oven, in a tumble dryer or similar.
