To augment Permafloat® float drums, Cellofoam also offers a full line of dock protection, hardware and accessories. Permafloat® Dock Bumpers are made from a specially formulated PVC compound which provides maximum protection against weather, fungus and UV rays. Available in black or white, these bumpers have a reinforced internal structure, which offers unsurpassed impact resistance. 

Distinctive Features Include:
  • Optional flat back or recessed (to fit aluminum or metal dock posts) 
  • Durable, long lasting thick plastic with UV inhibitor 
  • Easy to mount 
  • Recessed mounting points 
  • Provide boat protection when docking
The corner bumpers are the first line of defense against expensive damage to boats, and are made of durable yet flexible material. These bumpers can easily be installed on most dock surfaces that have 90 degree corners and can withstand harsh dockside 

Wave Defender®

Cellofoam’s Wave Defender® protects your dock from rough waves caused by boat wakes and wind. It reduces your dock’s rocking and rolling motion, thereby reducing dock wear and tear.

Wave Defender® stabilizes your dock just as well as commonly used heavy weights but without requiring additional floatation to maintain freeboard. It can be used with both new or existing docks, allowing you to relax and better enjoy your time on the water.

Wave Defender® attenuates waves and may serve as a breakwater to protect residential and commercial docks.

The Wave Defender® system is comprised of a double-flanged, EPS-filled Permafloat® float with an empty double-flanged shell suspended below it.  Both have a nominal thickness of 0.200 inches, much thicker than standard rotationally molded dock floats, and weigh about 50 lb empty and 66 lb filled with EPS.  Wave Defender® float shells have molded-in slots and very tough flanges to meet forces felt by wave action for years.  The EPS-filled float has a maximum buoyancy of 1130 lbs.

Wave Defender® features:

  • Rugged, with 33% thicker walls than standard floats
  • Resistant to sun, oil, gas, debris, and marine life
  • Double flanged with thick mounting flanges for long life and slots for easy installation
  • Floats filled with foam for maximum buoyancy even if breached
  • Neutral buoyancy shells filled with water stabilize your dock while maintaining freeboard 
  • Size of floats and shells: 48 x 36 x 20 inches

The Wave Defender® dock stabilization system can be easily attached to almost any new or existing wood, steel or aluminum dock system.  Cellofoam North America Inc. has been producing Permafloat® dock floats and Wave Defender® dock stabilization systems for decades and thousands of dock owners can attest to Cellofoam’s superior quality and performance.
