Pneumatic fenders

have a long and successful history of protecting vessels in mooring operations. Pneumatic fenders are ideal for permanent and semi-permanent port applications and for offshore ship-to-ship transfers requiring minimal maintenance, so costs are kept down.

Critical properties of Pneumatic fenders are energy absorption, hull pressure and reaction force. This means tha the pneumatic fender absorbs significant energy, reducing the forces on both the vessel hull and jetty structures.

Pneumatic fenders utilise the compressibility and elasticity of air to absorb energy. Therefore, the energy absorption capacity is substantially increased.

Maintenance costs are drastically reduced. Pneumatic fenders can be moored to the ships and docks with wire or chain line easily.
