Timber Fender System

Bayou Forest coordinates manufcaturing and treating expertise to build material for Port of Houston

Houston, Texas is an epicenter for international trade, facilitating trade through the Gulf of Mexico. The Port of Houston's facilities are protected on the ship channel by fender systems, shown above, which must be periodically repaired or replaced. 

Recently, Bayou Forest Products supplied the treated timber pieces for a new fender system installation. Our customer constructed a steel structure, and from the blueprints of that structure, Bayou Forest worked with our partner millwork shop and treating plant to manufacture and treat timber pieces to fit perfectly onto the steel structure. The timbers had to be chamfered then precisely drilled and countersunk for shear plates and bolts. 

After the pieces were treated and shipped to the project site, the contractor attached the timbers to the system and installed the entire structure.
