HARBORCAMEL™
MARINE CAMELS

The Perfect Solution for Protecting Your Pier and Vessels

Spread Berthing Loads across Fender Pilings

HarborCamels are tough and durable! When constructed through specified materials, composite fender camels offer a long life of operational functionality, with minimal maintenance. Our marine camels are specifically designed to be abrasion, impact, and UV resistant. These floating fenders also have sufficient strength and stiffness to dissipate berthing forces along their length.

Our floating log camels have an inner fiberglass core which provides specific strength and stiffness properties. An HDPE outer surface encases the marine camels for abrasion resistance. The pipe is foam filled and sealed, so it floats alongside the pier.

HarborCamel™ Marine Camels​

HarborCamel, is a fiberglass reinforced poly­mer (FRP) log camel designed to transfer vessel impact energy into multiple vertical fender piles. HarborCamel™ features a high-density polyethyl­ene (HOPE) exterior shell which exhibits excellent abrasion resistance while protecting your vessel from impact and scuff damage. Each Harbor­Camel™ is custom designed to exceed radial compression stresses due to vessel impact.

Eyebolt Mooring Attachment​

Eye bolt style mooring attachments ultilize a stainless steel carriage bolt, which passes through the HarborCamel™, for attachment of an eyebolt. A length of chain can then be shackled underwater to the eyebolt and the weight of that loop of chain keeps the camel secured to the pier. This allows the camel to adjust with the tide and has no maintenance issues.

Hawse Pipe Attachment​

A hawse pipe is a stainless steel pipe which passes through the HarborCamel, allowing for the use of a length of chain to secure the Camel to the structure to which it is attached, as shown in the image.
