Where it all began – PVC 1 – a flexible PVC U fendering profile designed to fit over a 9mm plain flange to provide protection to boats.
Manufactured in a UV stabilised, phthalate free, and 100% recyclable compound, our products are as kind to the environment as possible whilst delivering excellent in use performance.
Our non-marking PVC material provides the perfect alternative to rubber U fendering which is prone to leaching its colour on both your own boat as well as those around you.
This is the softer material grade to provide an easier product fit and mimics the feel of rubber. This profile is also available in as PVC 1/2 which is a harder grade of material that requires heating prior to fitting.
Flange Thickness: 9mm
Material: PVC - UK manufacture

The Wilks TeamAnswer by: Wilks Team (Admin) on 7 Aug 2017 10:59:00The flange I need this to fit on is 11mm thick.Will this be okay for the slight increase in thckness.Regards DavidQuestion by: DAVID JONES on 29 Oct 2017 17:09:00As you are aware, PVC 1 has been designed to fit a 9mm flange and whilst it can be opened beyond this size the final fit may not be ideal.
We would suggest ordering a free sample using our online service so that you can evaluate the profile for yourself in situ. PVC 6 and PVC 286 are both designed for 12.5mm flanges and would be worth obtaining samples of to see which profile meets your needs the best.
