Improved Load Distribution – Accommodating for Tight Fits
FiberWALES are fiber reinforced structural sections with higher stiffness than plastic lumber. This distributes impact loads to more pilings in a fender system. The product was developed for fender geometries that require the wales be formed to a tight radius. This can be important in narrower channels or areas where many structures are in close proximity.
FiberWALE can be designed with different dimensions and thicknesses to cost-effectively meet performance requirements. Shapes can be box sections or hat sections. Bolted splices are used to join wale sections.
