Formex® rafts are floating platforms for mussels and oysters sea farming. The product is conceived with the same geometry as the traditional mussel farming rafts: Rectangular structure formed by a system of beams and frames that have a flexible behaviour against the influence of the swell. The product is formed of standard modular elements and has been designed with improved safety compared with other systems (flat surface, anti-slipping texture…).
Made of Formex®, the high performance material registered by PREFFOR, these innovative aquaculture rafts are able to resist in adverse climatologic conditions and in different opened sea environments. The most relevant advantage of the Formex® rafts is its high durability.
The reduction in maintenance costs is very significant compared to other materials used, as the wood. The rafts made of Formex® are able to resist the high salinity of the seawater and the effect of the solar rays. Avoiding the use of wood implies a reduction of the forest destruction and the absence of using toxic products to protect it.
