Improved Buttfusion Round Floating Fish Cage
AquaTec Round Floating Fish Cage with improved butt fusion is a round cage where every butt fusion connection is added with additional wall thickness up to twice pipe thickness and equipped with leak-proof membranes, resulting in stronger and more secure connection than conventional butt fusion. Therefore, AquaTec cage is safer and more durable than conventional cage. If somehow there is a leak (for example: struck by a motor boat), AquaTec cage will stay afloat because water cannot pass through the leak-proof membranes. Improved Butt Fusion Round Floating Fish Cage is known to be able to withstand 3m wave and have a lifetime of minimum 20 years and up to 50 years with regular maintenance. Suitable for offshore use. Environmentally friendly and made of Prime Grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with anti-UV. Floating device is not filled with Styrofoam, HDPE joint is completely knock down. Available in 10 diameter (31m circumference) and 20 diameter (62m circumference).
