TIVAR® DockGuard provides dock fender facing that outlasts other materials such as wood, rubber, urethane or high density polyethylene. The ideal material for marine fender systems, TIVAR® DockGuard allows vessels to glide easily along its surface without marring hulls. Impervious to marine bore worms, TIVAR® DockGuard also sheds mussels and barnacles. Outwearing hardened steel, it cuts hourglass wear on pilings, and withstands salt, fuel and chemical spills. Even after 10 years in corrosive salt water, sunlight or extremely cold weather, TIVAR® DockGuard fender facings and wearstrips are top-notch performers. TIVAR® DockGuard is available in black and bright safety colors for better low-light visibility in 48″ x 120″ sheets with gauge sizes ranging from 3/4″ to 6″.
