Introduction to the categories and standards of rubber boat fenders

Boat fenders, also called boat handguards, are a kind of energy relieving installation, in order to retard the shock when the ships stop near the wharf or other ships, which prevents the ships or wharves from damage.

Rubber fender possesses the features such as good elastic, high capacity of soak, convenient maintenance, long service life, convenience to customized manufacturing, and so on., is widely applied in the countries containing Japan, Europe and America, and Southeast Asia. Not only does rubber fender can protect ships and wharves, but it also can decrease the horizontal load to wharves and improve the berth capacity of wharves, which makes wharves lighter, and decreases the building cost.

The size scope of the rubber fender is comparatively large. Matched vulcanizing equipment can be easily chosen for normal size products, but the investment of large-scale vulcanizing equipment needed by over-sized products is excessively high. Especially when the number of products is small, investment to purchase large-scale vulcanizing equipment is not worthy.

A float-type rubber fender is a comparatively new type of fender equipment. Compared with the solid rubber fender, its main features are large compressing deformation, large energy absorption, small reaction force, self-floating, easy installation, etc. It is usually used for occasions like ship-to-ship and ship-to-wharf barging, docking, and so on. Because of its self-floating characteristics, it is really suitable to install at a wharf with great change in tide level. Among them, the filled rubber fender is especially suitable for applications in harsh environments, such as offshore drilling platforms, because of its strengths of free maintenance and long service life.

  1. Rubber cylindrical fenders

Its features are low reaction force, slow surface pressure, rational energy absorption; When docking, the adaptability to the roll and pitch of ships is very strong, it is not influenced by the size of ships, with wide applications, convenience to install and maintain, and especially fits the old-fashion wharf.

2. d fendering

Its features are medium reaction force, energy absorption higher than cylindrical, convenience to install; because of the small size of the width of its bottom, it is pretty suitable for the frame wharf and the uses and installations of fenders.

3. DO type rubber fenders

Its features are reaction force and energy absorption higher than D type; its intensity of installation and service life are very higher than D type, and it is pretty suitable for the frame wharf.

Arch type rubber fender has features, like medium reaction force, high energy absorption, solid and convenient installation.

4. DA type rubber fenders

Its features are high energy absorption and low reaction force. The products have higher stress dispersion and long service life. Setting the defense board at the front can decrease the surface pressure. The specifications are entire, the ways of installation are various, it's convenient to change.

5. Drum type rubber fenders

Its features are a low reaction force, high energy absorption; its surface pressure is under 25 tons per 2 meters; it has a small reduction in mechanical properties of inclined compression.

∏-type rubber fender has the features like low reaction force, large energy absorption; easy installation; generally suitable for large and medium-sized wharves.
