Rubber fender is the most extensive fender product
Aug 22, 2018

Rubber fender is one of the most widely used fender varieties at present, which has many advantages such as high energy absorption, flexible arrangement and appropriate installation scale.

The weight and energy absorption per unit product is second only to the super drum fender in the compressed fender, 3.5 times higher than the cylinder fender, 2.3 times higher than the D fender, saving materials.

In use, it often causes tearing and damage of the fender root, which becomes a major shortcoming of this product. In order to reduce the friction coefficient, reduce the shear force on the fender when ships are at berth, thus extending the service life of the product.

Design compression deformation is big (under the condition of the reaction is not increase), 20% higher than that of V, 8% higher than that of M type, increase energy absorption, so that products in the compression type fender series, arched fender (TD - B) unit weight (rubber consumption) high energy absorption, anchoring and apply to the ship, dock, the dock, such as wide application range.

The disadvantage is that the pressure acting on the ship side panels is high, so it is not suitable for ships (such as oil tanker, etc.) with low strength of the ship side panels.

The front fender of td-bb type fender (working face) is provided with anti-punching plate and PE laminate plate, which can reduce the surface pressure and friction coefficient with the ship board, thus greatly reducing the berthing shear.
