Aquaflex 250 Pen

The proven and highly successful Aquaflex 250 system covers pen sizes from 35-80m circumference and utilises 250mm diameter flotation pipes. Incredibly robust and featuring a modular design, Aquaflex pens have been engineered to give farmers peace of mind so they can concentrate on rearing quality fish. Aquaflex is the ideal system for inshore sea farms, freshwater farms, pilot farms and for rearing juvenile stock.

Features:

  • Manufactured utilising the security and safety of our proven three-ring system.
  • Pen manufacture utilises butt fusion and electrofusion process and control.
  • A flexible yet robust and durable polyethylene structure, built for challenging environments.
  • Both inner and outer rings are polystyrene filled for added security.
  • A heavy-duty moulded base unit.
  • Low maintenance design resistant to saltwater corrosion.
  • Heavy gauge handrail pipe used to resist deformation.
  • Incorporates a full slip-resistant, modular decking system compliant with current HSE guidelines.
