Our marine team recently supplied six foam filled orange fenders to a port in Southern England. They needed fenders able to produce a specific standoff distance between the quay wall and any vessel that may want to berth in the port.
The customer could not use inflatable pneumatic fendering, which is the traditional choice, as they are made to a standard size and our customer required flexibility in the diameter.
Our marine team were able to provide a bespoke solution that ensured the customer was supplied with fenders to their exact requirements. We were able to do this as our manufacturing processes are flexible, which enabled us to produce products that had the precise dimensions required to produce the minimum standoff distance.
To ensure the solution matched our customers requirements, our team calculated:
- The precise energy absorption
- Exact foam density
- Reaction forces that met specifications
Once produced, as standard our fendering is:
- Easy to install
- Highly abrasion resistant
- has non-marking skin
