Foamed PUR: BasKette, the Fish Line Basket
Outdoor equipment made from PUR
KetteGear is the entrepreneur behind the product BasKette – a practical fish line basket intended for both deep-sea fishing and fly fishing. The product designer wanted to use polyurethane for this new outdoor product for active fishermen because of its unique properties. The result is a practical and multifunctional design.
Floats on the water
BasKette is cast as a sandwich construction from foamed black polyurethane and consists of a light core and a hard, firm shell. The basket is cast in one single piece in a specially developed aluminium mould and has various fine details like e.g. notches to hold the fishing rod, logo on the side, cones at the bottom and holes to drain off the sea water
BasKette easily floats on the water, and the lightweight material makes the basket easy to handle and transport. Thanks to the robustness of the material, the basket can also be used as a stool/seat.
Weather resistant – also under rough weather conditions
The polyurethane used for the manufacture of the BasKette is weather resistant and robust. The surface is tight and the material is resistant to e.g. salt water. BasKette is extremely impact-proof and therefore withstands the impacts it may be exposed to when used in the wild, close to stone, sand, ice and sea water. During the product development we endeavoured to create a product that withstands even rough weather conditions.
