IRM’s floating fender is a leading anti-collision piece of equipment for various marine applications in the world today. This pneumatic rubber fender functions as a critical protective medium against collision during Ship-to-Ship (STS) transfer operations and Ship-to-Dock (STD) berthing & mooring operations. Floating pneumatic rubber fenders also have the advantage of massive energy absorption with low unit surface pressure acted upon the ship. Hence, floating pneumatic fenders have become an ideal ship protection medium used extensively by large tankers, LPG vessels, ocean platforms, bulk carriers, floating structures, large docks, harbors, jetties & wharves.
To extract maximum life and performance out of deployed fenders it is imperative to service them at recommended periodic intervals. In the case easy access to the deployed fenders is complex, (offshore applications, remote installations etc.) ribbed fenders offer a reduced maintenance option. In the unlikely event of serious damage where onsite repair is needed, IRM’s site crew can be available at a short notice for repair or maintenance. Fenders manufactured by IRM are supplied with tools for inflation and basic repairs.
