As a niche player, Fender Innovations has its focus on a wide variety of different market applications. We can build flexible fenders of any shape and size with different dampening characteristics to fit the individual requirements of your vessel. All fender applications have in common that they are spectacularly lighter and stronger then existing fender systems, leading to significant operational cost savings. In addition to that, the design and appearance of the fenders is elegant and the flexibility in the manufacturing process offers marine architects a new spectrum of applicable forms, rounding’s and curves.
Sleek design and freedom of form
The fenders can be made in one piece at any shape and lenght up to 20m (longer upon request). We can produce fenders in any shape build from a 2D cad, 3D cad or from a template for new builds and retrofitting. When no drawings or files are available, we can measure the fender on location. The seamless corners and customized fit give our fenders a sleek design. We offer different top-coats and the possibility for logo's to be crafted in to the fender.
Strong and flexible fenders
Different damping characteristics can be combined in to one fender, each design is adapted to the vessel and her usage. By adjusting the parameters of the different materials the fender has an improved contact area and is higly adaptable to the hull shape and the intended vessel usage. The fender systems are suitable for ambient temperatures between minus 30°C up to 55°C. Different temperature ranges are possible on request. 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.
Light weight and cost effective
Our system offers a spectacular low weight alternative to normal fenders. The fenders are up to 12 times lighter than traditional rubber fenders. Our fenders will not absorb water, making it easy to do an emergency repair to prevent further damage and keep the effectiveness optimal.
