Double Bitt Bollard
Mooring bollards are available in a wide range of shapes, load ratings, and materials, of which no single combination can satisfy all customers. Accordingly, Qingdao Lige provides a wide range of products.
The most commonly used style of bollards are the Single Bitt, Double Bitt, T-head, Staghorn, and Kidney, as well as simple cleats used for smaller vessels.
The particular type of bollard a customer requests, as well as the material used to cast the bollard, is usually a function of what has historically been used at the operator’s facility.
These differences can also be geographically dependent.
For example, T-head bollards are more prominent in some regions while Single Bitt bollards are more commonly used in others.
It may also be the preference of the consultant as they may have considered a particular bollard model, along with its particular shape, load rating,and anchorage, during the detailed design of the berth.
This choice must be respected to ensure the safe usage of the product.
Double Bitt bollards are useful when high densities of mooring lines are present.
The two column design allows two lines to be secured and independently released without having to compromise
the mooring of an adjacent vessel.
The opposing sloping columns are particularly useful for securing
of spring lines as their greatest strength is parallel to the berth.
