Roller Fenders are designed to protect the structures while a vessel is approaching an entrance channel or coming for dry docking.
“IRM” DRF series Roller Fenders are designed to protect the structures while a vessel is approaching an entrance channel or coming for dry docking. Unlike “DR” Type fenders, the axes of these fenders are fixed.
“IRM” Roller Fenders are more resistant to wear and tear, by the virtue of its capability to rotate in the direction of the impact. These fenders can also be installed vertically to accommodate the rolling and pitching of vessels during loading and unloading of cargo.
“IRM” Roller Fenders are manufactured and assembled using a special technology for a uniform deflection of the rollers and a smooth rotational movement in the direction of the force – thus ensuring a safe passage of the vessels without damaging the structure. The superior moulding technology employed in the high-pressure thermic fluid heated hydraulic presses ensure long life and trouble-free performance.
“IRM” DRF series Roller Fenders are perfectly engineered and assembled in high tensile steel fabricated housing, coated with high build epoxy paint 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 of them.
