Cylindrical fenders for mooring areas are used to absorb impacts and shocks resulting from the contact of the ship's hull and the moorage wall (quay pier). They are made of stiff EPDM rubber, with an internal center-axial through hole. Cylindrical mooring fenders can be of various diameters, they are highly resistant to seawater and UV radiation and retain their characteristics at temperatures from -30 °C to + 45 °C. The standard ratio between the outer and inner diameters of the fender are 2: 1 and 1.75: 1.
Cylindrical fenders for ships, tugboats, fishing boats have good performance in terms of emerging resistance loads. Marina fenders can be of various diameters and configurations and are installed vertically or horizontally in one or two rows. These fenders are installed permanently usually in the bow and stern of tugs and icebreakers. Conventional ships are predominantly equipped with removable fenders.
The through hole of the fender acts as a spring, which creates a shock-absorbing effect and all resulting loads and impacts are smoothly distributed along the entire body of the fender, thus protecting the hull and the moorage wall (quay pier) from damage.
Our company performs complex works on the installation of cylindrical fenders for tugs and mooring areas in accordance with the regulated technical requirements and operating environment
