Buoyant Beacon SPAR Buoy

Buoyant Beacon SPAR Buoy

This buoyant beacon combines the advantages of a fixed structure and a buoy without the disadvantages of either.

Tension moored and non-rotating, it does not swing in a watch circle and so provides precise positioning of the signal. When bumped by a vessel, this buoy is capable of heeling over to the point of nearly submerging the light with minimal damage to the buoy.

Features:

  • Robust steel construction - the buoyant chamber is pressure tested and filled with a closed cell polyurethane foam
  • All steel is sandblasted to bright metal, primed with zinc-rich primer and coated with a marine grade vinyl of your specified color
  • Optional anti-fouling paint for the underwater portion is available.
  • Enclosed maintenance area has an easy access hatch, expanded metal deck and steel safety railings; upon request, the ladder can be ordered as detachable (to prevent vandalism)
