Timber Fender System
Bayou Forest uses manufcaturing expertise to build material for Port of Houston
Houston, TX is a major epicenter for international trade. The Port of Houston facilitates that trade with is access to the Gulf of Mexico. Facilities at the port are protected on the ship channel by fender systems, which must be periodically repaired or replaced.
Recently, Bayou Forest Products supplied the treated timber pieces for installation as part of a new fender system. Our contractor constructed a steel structure. From blueprints of that structure, Bayou Forest was able to manufacture and treat timber pieces that fit perfectly onto the steel structure. Our mills built the timbers for shear plating, drilled and countersunk holes for bolts, and chamfered edges on the pieces. All the millwork had to be completed within very precise tolerances so that the pieces would fit perfectly on to the steel structure.
After the pieces were treated and shipped to the project site, the contractor attached the timbers to the system and installed the entire structure.
