SLP D Fenders: Protecting Your Berthing Structures and Vessels

When it comes to marine safety, D fenders often come to mind. D fenders, as the name suggests, come in the shape of the letter D with a cavity in the middle. DD fenders have D-shaped cavity in the middle while DO fenders have O-shaped middle cavity.

D fenders can be produced as follows:

  1. 100% rubber (without steel plate), usually to be installed on vessels
  2. Using steel plates, usually to be installed on berthing structures.

Because of its compact shape, D fender is suitable for relatively small berthing structures, either wooden, concrete or floating docks serving small and medium-sized vessels. D fenders can also be mounted on harbor tugs, fishing boats, and barges as bumpers.
