Magnets for Pilot Ladder Safety: Yellow Mag II

Ladder Magnets, also known as Ship, Hull Magnets or Boom Magnets and Pilot Ladder Anchoring Magnets, protect lives and help minimise spill damage at sea. Improved Yellow Mag II is Patent Pending and is now lighter and easier to use.

Every day, sea pilots board large vessels to assist in bringing them to safe harbour. Their job involves a sometimes precarious transition from a pilot boat to the ship, via a pilot ladder.

These men and women are experts at this transition but nonetheless, safety is paramount. Serpent and Dove's Pilot Ladder Magnet has been specially developed to make life safer for sea pilots by providing removable anchor points for the ladders on the ship's side.

These Pilot Ladder Magnets are designed to withstand aggressive marine environments and have no internal moving parts or entry points for seawater - a natural enemy of neodymium magnet material. Powder-coating in safety yellow for high visibility and resin encapsulation of magnetic elements makes the product seaworthy.

In addition, they are lightweight at around 3 kgs, yet immensely strong, providing more than 350 kgs of clamping force even through many layers of paint and salt scale and grime on a ship's hull. A Delrin roller makes the Hull Magnet simple to attach and release. Hull magnets are also used to anchor floating spill booms and maintenance vessels and are also known as Boom Magnets. Patents apply to some versions of this product.


Our consultants will provide knowledge and sensible answers.
