  • Features

    UV-Stablised Polyethylene
    Rotationally moulded to form a seamless body, 9.5mm thick, able to withstand knocks and/or collision. Through a unique mould design and a controlled process, an increased thickness is formed at major stress points. This rugged material is abrasion resistant and repels marine growth, eliminating costly sandblasting and painting.

    Long-Term Strength
    SB-1500 is quipped with a galvanised steel mooring and lifting eye and the complete assembly is removable for inspection. SB-1500 buoy is EPS foam filled to prevent significant water ingress in event of a puncture. As with all Sentinel® buoys, minor punctures are on-station repairable.

    SB-1500 is ideal for use in currents up to 6 knots. The unique keel and hull system with 160kg (350lb) of internal ballast keeps the buoy stable, upright and tracking.

    Matching or Alternating Colours
    SB-1500 is available in all recommended IALA colours, including cardinal and bifurcation markings, with optional IALA recommended topmarks and daymarks.
