Foam Filled Fender
Polyurethane Foam Filled Fender is a floating type compression fender that is highly versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications. It consists of an outer Polyurethane protective layer, a reinforced rubber nylon cord fabric, as well as an internal space that is filled with foam as a medium to absorb collision.
Foam fenders outer layer has an extremely low frictional resistance and is highly resistant to wear due to its strength. Impact force is efficiently absorbed by the foam fender, reducing the resultant force acted upon the wharf/vessel at the point of contact.
Application wise, this kind of fender can be used for tugs, workboats, pilot boats and is suitable for open sea terminals, gravity ports, especially for large tidal wave docks. Foam fender is also a viable option for Ship-to-Ship (STS) operations.
Types of Foam Filled Fender
There are mainly two types of such fender – Portable Foam Fender (usually small size) and Flange Foam Fender (usually for larger dimensions).
Flange-type foam filled fender can either come in a chain net, a chain net with tyres, or without the net (fender body only).
