The design offers generous mounting options, in horizontal, vertical and diagonal positions. These features provide an exceptional and flexible barrier between the berthing station such as anchoring docks and different types of vessel. When it comes to flexibility, our cylindrical fenders present meters-long stretching ability.
Here are the available categories of D fenders:

● O-shaped, also with an inner chamber
● Solid, with no inner chamber
The delta fenders provide a minimal surface for berthing contact, while providing a reliable vessel protection. The design offers easy installation with several mounting holes, both at the top and bottom surfaces. Furthermore, the performance is enhanced by accommodation of a large inner chamber that results in a higher shock absorbing property.
Cylindrical fenders are easily installed and offer outstanding shock absorption. As the name indicates, they are constructed with cylindrical shape and can be mounted in horizontal, vertical and diagonal positions- according to versatile task requirements. They also provide excellent progressive reactions for both large and small vessels.
A square fender is made for rugged applications, when a more sturdy berthing protection is called for. They are a perfect replacement for D fenders, used in a wide range of heavy duty operations, used as belting tugs and workboats fenders. The design is robust, featuring a circular bore to increase the wall’s thickness and service life cycle.
A keyhole fender is structured to provide progressive reaction to greater forces, hence used as a shocks and impacts fender forlarge ships and other heavy duty industries. The construction features two standard holes for fixtures on the boat or even quay walls. They are usually installed vertically and by using fixing pins.
For optimal protection to the bow and stern of the vessel, the composition is further reinforced with an Ultra High Mechanical Polyethylene coating.
The M fenders are versatile in application and used to bring protection to a variety of berthing surfaces. M fenders are one of the best boat fenders, installed by using three reliable opening and fixing pins, on the bow or stern ofboats, pontoons, quays, etc.
These fenders are usually installed vertically with great flexibility to cover the contour of different shapes of the bow or stern. They are also a perfect replacement for W fenders, where a less-heavy fender edition is required; M fenders are lighter and cover a smaller space when mounted.
The W fenders are particularly designed for absorbing heavy force and shock and withstand the most challenging environmental conditions. These sturdy fenders are arranged for utilizing around workboats, including pipe and cable laying vessels.
