Our extremely light and strong custom-made fenders are ideal for all fast moving, light weight workboats, such as s all weather life boats, tenders, fast rescue, Heavy Duty RIB’s, Research and survey or Unmanned marine systems, due to the following key characteristics:
Up to 12 times lighter
The system offers a spectacular low weight alternative to normal fenders. The fenders are up to 12 times lighter than traditional rubber fenders.
Different dampening characteristics can be combined in one fender, each design is adapted to the vessel and its usage. The preferred way of fitting is bonding to the hull, since this is the fastest and easiest method. Besides some existing alternatives, we can also develop a custom mounting type that suits the application.
The light weight material leads to signicant fuel cost reduction. Besides that, the fender will not absorb water, making it easy to do an emergency repair to prevent further damage and keep the effectiveness optimal.
The perfect mix of materials
By adjusting the parameters of the different materials the fender has an improved contact area and is highly adaptable to the hull shape and intended vessel usage. The fender systems is suitable for ambient temperature between minus 30°C up to 55°C. Different temperature ranges on request.
