Elastic Rodes

The Hazelett Marine elastic rodes is a proprietary advanced elastomer technology that is proven and tested with 35+ years of experience. The Elastic Rodes comes in four sizes and two stiffness levels. It is used for a number of applications including swing moorings, docks/pontoons, wave attenuators, navigation buoys and floating solar arrays. When integrated into a mooring line, the Hazelett Marine Elastic Rodes provides unparalleled stability, constant tension and extends the design life of the floating structure. Tests conducted by a third party accredited testing facility conclude that a single Hazelett Marine Elastic Rode will withstand over 20kn (4,496 lbs) of force. The elastic can repeatedly elongate over 200% and return to original length.

The Hazelett Marine elastic rodes floats above the sea bed with a minimal environmental footprint, reduces point loads, reduces wind loads, increases mooring density, and provides a more gentle dock motion.

Inspection & Maintenance

The Hazelett elastic system has a 10-year life expectancy and requires minimal maintenance. Docks anchored with Hazelett elastics have uniform loads on the entire structure. Our single point systems reduce point loads and ensure boats stay pointed directly into the wind with a constant, gentle pull. While our mooring system requires minimal maintenance, we recommend the elastics be inspected on a yearly basis and after strong weather events such as hurricanes. Inspections should be conducted regularly by trusted and qualified mooring installers. If desired, we are partnered with quality inspectors who will be happy to travel to project sites to inspect moorings and guarantee the integrity of the mooring system(s).

Installation Support

Hazelett Marine strives to support our clients throughout the installation process. We value our customer relationships and strive to provide the best service possible. Hazelett recommends and can provide a professional, certified and experienced installer to be on-site to conduct or supervise installation. Hazelett installers can provide all necessary information and feedback to ensure a proper installation that will guarantee the structural integrity and reliability of the mooring system(s).

The Hazelett Elastic Mooring Rode offers a better solution. Because of its engineered ELASTICITY, it stretches out smoothly under the load of wind and sea, thereby eliminating the peak forces of a rigid chain rode. The Hazelett rode provides a new Home Arabian dimension in mooring systems – the dimension of elasticity. During storm conditions, this new dimension also protects against the effects of the sudden increases in water depth caused by storm surges or the impact of a break-away boat.

The elasticity within the mooring set-up eliminated entirely the ‘snatch’ associated with chain moorings during heavy weather and helps the boat to maintain a very stable position over the mooring in rough conditions. The Hazelett system eliminates virtually all moving parts, so reducing wear on the majority of components.
