These Fenders offer excellent energy absorption characteristic and do have a Linear load deflection characteristic. They are very easy to install, remove and handle for various applications.

These Fenders are generally equipped with chain nets and tyres or with wire rope nets, end rings, Towing Rings and Swivel Joints with suitable D-Shackles at both ends for better life. Sling type Fenders are also available on specific request. These Fenders offer excellent resistance to shear force, inclined compression and are highly reliable.

The carefully crafted high abrasion resistant external layer prevents atmospheric ageing and nylon tyre cord layers ensure high mechanical strength under heavy compression. Internal rubber layers ensure a positive seal to maintain the desired internal pressure. The latest moulding technology, a combination of heat, pressure and accurate process parameters makes our pneumatic fenders extremely reliable and ensure a trouble free long life. These Fenders are also supplied in grey colour for non-staining / Naval applications.

Variations

I.CTN Type

Pneumatic Fenders are usually supplied with a protective Chain & Tyre Net (CTN) fitted around the body giving extra protection to the body of the fender. The CTN is assembled out of galvanised chains and shackles covered at the joints with used truck tyres (or aircraft tyres on request) and along the length of the chain with rubber tubes. Anti-scratch matting can also be supplied inside the tyre centers for added protection if specified. On smaller diameter fenders a chain net or rope net can also be installed.

II. Sling Type

Pneumatic Fenders that are supplied without a factory fitted CTN are referred to as a sling type, this fender has modified end fittings to allow the fender to be lifted and installed efficiently.

III. RIB Type

If a low-maintenance options is specified the fender body can be manufactured with reinforced rubber ribs crossing the body in a grid format. This provides extra protection for the fender body but does not suffer the wear and tear of conventional CTN protection.

IV. Fender body color

Generally fenders are manufactured in black, however various color options are available on request
