Roller Fenders (Series DR)

These Roller Fenders are more resistant to wear and tear, by the virtue of its capability to rotate in the direction of the vessels and move inside of housing in the direction of impact because of the special spring type design.

“DIPTI” DR series Roller Fenders are the right choice to protect your structures while a vessel is approaching an entrance channel or coming for dry docking. These fenders are quite robust and can absorb large impacts while guiding the floating vessels / barges without damaging the structure.

These fenders are more resistant to wear and tear, by the virtue of its capability to rotate in the direction of the vessels and move inside of housing in the direction of impact because of the special spring type design.

These fenders can be installed vertically keeping in mind the rolling and pitching of vessels during loading and unloading of cargo. In case of this modified version, since the Roller is capable of horizontal movement, it can absorb the impact more smoothly compared to the fixed type roller fenders.

“DIPTI” DR series Roller Fenders are manufactured using special technology for a uniform deflection of the rollers at its circumference and a smooth movement (rotation) in the direction of the force, thus ensuring a safe passage of the vessels without damaging the structures. The superior moulding technology employed in our high pressure thermic fluid heated hydraulic presses ensures a long life with trouble free performance.

“DIPTI” DR series Roller Fenders are perfectly assembled in high tensile steel fabricated housing coated with high build epoxy paint and a suitable lubrication system to ensure trouble free operations. If required, services can be provided for supervising the installation of the roller fenders. All roller fenders come with complete details of all parts/components as well as a Periodic Maintenance and Service Manual which enables the end users to get maximum service life.
