Pneumatic Rubber Fender/ Floating fender/ Foam fender
Foam fenders work equally well in harbors or between vessels. Low hull pressures protect soft-skinned ships. Foam fender combines a Durable, Non-marking finish with Low maintenance, Low reaction and high energy absorptions, No chain/tire net required, Virtually indestructible, Unsinkable design, Non-marking even against white hulls, Maintains safe stand-off distances, Low hull pressures, Wide range of standard and custom sizes, Well proven design and low maintenance and operational cost.
1. Using compressed air for buffering, the pneumatic rubber fender deforms gently while being squeezed and pressed. It offers a large contact surface, low reaction force and large energy absorption.
2. When a ship is berthing at an angle, the pneumatic rubber fender can achieve oblique contact with the ship due to its unique structure, thus better protecting the ship and the dock.
3. The fender is floating on water all the time, allowing a ship to safely berthing at any time without influence from the rising and fall of tidewater and sea wave, etc. Meanwhile, floating on water ensures small friction force, which ensures no damage to ship's external coating and the rubber fender itself.
4. It is very easy for installation. Bolts and nuts are not required. The one thing we need to do is to use rope to tie the marine fender to the dock or the anchor post of a ship.
typically, the pneumatic rubber fenders are tied to docks and ships to protect docks and ships from being damaged during berthing process. In addition, they can also be used as buoys, for pipe sealing and in the processing of transporting goods.
