Free Trelleborg’s Bollard Guide Aims to Increase Port Safety (USA)

Safe berthing and mooring operations are critical to the success of ports, harbours and offshore environments. Most importantly, safe operations protect site personnel but additionally, the huge investments made in the facility to begin with.

A new bollard guide, published by Trelleborg Marine Systems for port operators and ship owners illustrates the importance of best practice, tailor-made solutions.

With 30 years of experience providing specialist berthing and mooring systems for port, offshore and marine industries, Trelleborg’s Bollard Guide features comprehensive bollard data, factors to consider in the design process and specification and installation information.

The Guide underlines why different types of bollard are required for different applications and the significance of the differing performance characteristics.

Bollards are, of course, safety critical items and as such, product quality is paramount. The importance of demanding the highest standards of certification is highlighted, with tips on what to look for in a quality documentation package.

Trelleborg Marine Systems is able to work with port operators, owners and consultants from the design stage of a project to determine the most effective bollard to suit an application. The guide itself covers tee, horn and kidney bollards
