The Chafe-Pro® HB Series is ideal for protecting a ship’s mooring lines from pier and/or chock abrasion and for protecting lines used for towing. The HB Series is constructed of multiple layers of FJORD, Inc.’s specially formulated and designed heavy-duty nylon weaves. The layering technique used in the HB Series is designed to provide maximum flexibility and ease of application, and also provide long chafe-resistant service. Typical application includes use in mooring/anchoring and towing operations.
Abrasion testing has shown the Chafe-Pro® HB Series to be more resistant to chafe abrasion than marine-grade fire hose and chafing gear made from such materials as HMW-PE (polyethylene), Kevlar, etc.
The Chafe-Pro® HB Series is available in standard and custom lengths. The below listed units are recommended for mooring/anchor lines and for use on towing hawsers that are used for light to moderate strain towing applications. For heavy towing, we recommend our Viking Armor Tow Series. The HB Series may be custom ordered to fit any particular need, such as for use in an eye-splice or for different lengths or line sizes.
All models are downward compatible to line size and all dimensions are nominal. The standard color is black. Custom embroidering is available.
