Glowing pontoon ends from Solent Marine

Never put a foot wrong again!

Hamble based Solent Marine, have announced the launch of Simbro-Lite, a new innovation available for pontoon finger ends and splays, which provides a glowing area of the pontoon at night without the need for electricity.

A special solar reactive Polymer has been used to manufacture the end pieces which require no external power source to emit a glow for up to seven hours after night fall during the busy summer boating season.

The company say the glowing pontoon ends will improve the safety of night mooring, provide an alternative light source in the event of power cuts and add to the safety of walking around the marina at night.

Simbro-Lite has been developed and tested by Solent Marine and will be exclusive to its range of Pontoon Marina systems.

Impervious to salt water, the finger ends and splays also have integrated non slip properties, which provide additional safety to crews alighting from vessels.

Commercial Director, Marc Simmonds commented: “Solent Marine is keen to bring a number of new elements to marina construction and Simbro-Lite is just one of several features we will introduce this year.

“Currently these new finger ends and splays can be delivered with any of our new pontoon systems. We are also working on a Simbro-Lite that can be retro fitted to existing fingers and hope to introduce that within the next few months.

“Our aim is to make marina pontoons more stable, longer lasting and safer for all users, both ashore and on the water. Simbro-Lite is another step towards this goal.”
