Commercial vessels benefit with Manuplas sprayed or cast fender systems. Both systems being robust and highly durable in the harsh and unpredictable Marine environment. Manuplas can provide fendering for application to the bow and/or sides of a vessel. Manuplas commercial vessel fendering is suitable for a wide range of vessel types including: Wind Farm Support Vessels, Workboats, Pilot Boats, Lifeboats, Patrol Boats and Military Vessels.

Construction:

  • Manuplas fenders are manufactured from a high performance physically cross-linked polyethylene foam core.
  • A unique protective polyurethane elastomer coating is either cast or sprayed applied to the core.
    • Cast fendering requires in-house manufactured tooling to produce the fender.
    • Cast fendering is appropriate when a high quality, smooth surface finish and tighter design tolerances are necessary.
    • A sprayed finish allows flexibility on the shape, size and technical specification of the fender to be achieved without the need for investing in mould tooling.  A tailored solution for each boats’ individual characteristics can be designed and manufactured.
  • Manuplas can also offer vessel fendering with a seamless polyurea coating which can be applied very thinly if necessary and provides a highly visual impact.
  • Manuplas can provide a wide range of rubber fender types including hollow D fenders, solid D fenders, cylindrical fenders, square fenders, M fenders, keyhole fenders and composite fenders.

Features:

Cast Fendering Benefits:

  • High quality, smooth  and consistent surface finish for maximum visual appeal
  • Less than 1/3 of the weight of rubber fenders, helping  to improve vessel speed and fuel consumption
  • Custom designs to suit budget and application
  • High impact and abrasion resistance prevents damage to the vessels structure
  • Male and female joint system supplied as standard
  • Tooling manufactured in-house enabling tight controls of quality and lead times
  • A virtually non-marking external finish
  • Variable core densities to suit vessel usage or specific location on vessel
  • Custom moulded bow and corner sections
  • Square, snaped or custom shaped terminating ends available
  • Easily bonded to the hull for quick installation
  • Rapid lead times

Sprayed Fendering Benefits:

  • Can be manufactured and installed as a single piece or as a series of multiple modules to suit the specific vessel.
  • Considerably lighter (up to 60% compared to traditional rubber D fenders), improving both speed and fuel consumption of vessels.
  • Highly impact absorbent with the ability to withstand the harsh offshore environment. It is therefore particularly suitable for allowing safe access to wind turbines and makes berthing safer and easier.
  • High abrasion resistance as a result of in-house development of a bespoke outer coating
  • A virtually non-marking external finish
  • Optional extras such as anti-slip coatings can be offered to enhance safety
  • Optional Kevlar reinforcing of elastomer skin increases tear resistance and extends life of the fender in harsh marine environments
