InMare 2020: the best of
- December 22, 2020
Key word: initiative
The Municipality of Ranco is expanding a floating dock in a specific situation: the close passage of ferry-boats causes disturbing waves, so the dock needs to have adequate protections.
We propose our Big Fender, the biggest of our L-shaped profiles for floating docks, that completely covers the angle of the dock. But there is an issue: our standard colors, blue and white, are usually rejected by the local Basin Authority. Without waiting for the Authority’s response, we decide to start a pilot production of charcoal grey Big Fender, since we know that dark grey is one of the colors that the environmental restriction allows.
The grey Big Fender are approved and delivered with no delay on the original schedule. Maybe we should add charcoal grey to our Big Fender palette!
