Im after 12m of the bump in black and dont really want to buy 20. 4 tracks and 2 end pieces. Will you sell cut lengths??
Question by: andy on 3 Jul 2017 18:05:00Hi Andy,
Unfortunately, we do not offer a cut coil service and the sizes that we stock are the only ones available at this time. BUMP! 53mm is only availabke in 10m, 20m & 30m.
We can offer alternatives which closer match the profile and coil size you require:
BUMP! 65mm (15m):https://www.wilks.co.uk/marine/boat-fendering/bump/bump-65mm.html
47mm D Fender (15m): https://www.wilks.co.uk/marine/boat-fendering/d-profiles/pvc-49.html
53mm clip D: https://www.wilks.co.uk/marine/traditional-range/d-profiles/pvc-2085-6t-traditional-range.html
Hopefully once of these products provide you with an alternative option.
Please use the free sample ordering option should you wish further evaluation.
The Wilks TeamAnswer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 4 Jul 2017 08:40:00Question by: Mikeros@btinternet.com on 26 Oct 2016 15:02:00The track will not bend around 90 degrees, the profile would need to be mitred in order to fit such an angle.
Our BUMP! system has been developed to fit around an 80mm radius, such as found at the bow of a boat.
The track will bend around a tighter radius although the legs of the body may need to be mitred in order to retain the shape of the profile.
We have added an additional photo to demonstrate fitting around a radius and will look to add further imagery soon.
The Wilks TeamAnswer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 26 Oct 2016 15:55:00Question by: tony fabian on 22 Mar 2017 19:23:00When using self-tapping screws with our track we would advise drilling a small pilot hole first to avoid splitting the track.
We would suggest that a minimum screw size of 1” x 10 and bolts at a minimum of M5.
The substrate and thickness of substrate will influence this requirement.
A typical installation would require a 10-12 gauge screw but in some cases bolts may be the preferred option.
If bolts are to be used then access will be required when considering fixing points.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to discuss fitting options over the telephone as we will be happy to assist further.

Answer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 24 Mar 2017 11:20:00Is it necessary to apply heat to the track in order to bend it or how is it done? I wish to fit the Bump system to a 10ft dinghy used as a tender.Question by: alan thomas on 12 Oct 2017 17:05:00Hi Alan,
The track can be fitted without heating and is fitted using self-tapping screws every 15-20cm (6"-8") and will form around a radius up to 42mm. The body will then follow the track when fitted.
When fitting around corners/tight radius, the track can either be mitred to bend or else simply use two separate tracks on either side of the corner. In such tight areas, the body is liable to deform around the bend itself and may require mitring inside to assist with a good fit.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need any further guidance.
The Wilks TeamAnswer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 13 Oct 2017 10:05:00Hi,
could You give all dimensions of bump track? I think my existing track can be used with BUMP 53/65. I just want to be sure.
I need all three width and all three height values. Alternatively a 'real technical drawing' would be cool.
JoergQuestion by: Jörg Schubert on 16 May 2018 17:21:00Hi Jörg,
Thank you for your enquiry.
A dimensioned drawing has now been uploaded to: https://www.wilks.co.uk/marine/boat-fendering/bump/bump-track.html
The internal depth is 6mm (missing from the drawing).
We hope this assists but please do not hesitate to contact us for further details.
