Polyform HTM Fenders: Designed for Versatility
The design trait that sets Polyform’s HTM fenders apart is that the line passes through the middle. HTM stands for “hole-through-middle” and the company says that having the line pass through the middle provides maximum protection in a wide variety of applications. The series is designed for vessels ranging from 20’ (6.1 m) to 50’ (15.24 m) in four sizes and a variety of colors.
All the HTM series fenders have even wall thickness for strength and durability. Molded-in ribs improve strength and abrasion resistance and the ends are reinforced. They can be used in vertical or horizontal orientation. Polyform says they’re designed for medium-duty use in permanent and unprotected moorings and all HTM fenders have Polyform’s unique valve with screw closure. All the fenders are available in as many as 22 colors.
To better protect the HTM series, Polyform also offers EFC Series Covers that are hand-washable. They’re made with a premium-grade polyester yarn that is durable and resistant to abrasion and UV exposure. The covers resist water absorption, which reduces the overall weight of the fenders when they get wet. Covers are available in black or navy blue and are woven in a fashion that results in a seamless tube so there’s no chance splitting.
