Why do we use fenders?
Fenders offer real protection for the vessel and the dock from being damaged by the heavy and abnormal impacts during mooring and berthing periods. The abilities to absorb energy and reduce the reaction forces yielded by the abrasive action provide more advantages in terms of extending the life and usefulness of the port. Selecting the right fenders provides benefits to the contractors in terms of saving on the material costs like steel and concrete. Therefore, the conditions such as the structure of the wharf and the size and type of berthing ship must be considered.
Why SLP Fenders?
