Rubber fender, also known as rubber fender, is installed on a wharf or ship to absorb the collision energy between the ship and the wharf or the ship when it is docked or moored to protect the ship and the pier from damage.
Rubber fender classification: Usually rubber fenders can be divided into two categories according to their structure: solid rubber fenders (non-floating) and floating rubber fenders. Solid rubber fender (non-floating type) is an anti-collision device for dock ships with a long history of application and a wide range of applications. According to the force of the rubber fender, it can be divided into shear type, rotary type and compression type; according to the structure of the fender, the solid rubber fender can be further divided into D type, cone type, drum type, sector shape, rectangle shape, cylinder Shaped fenders and so on. Floating rubber fenders are free to float on the surface of the water and can be divided into: inflatable rubber fenders and filled rubber fenders depending on the internal cushioning medium. Inflatable rubber fenders use compressed air as the medium to consume collision energy by working with compressed air. Foam-filled fenders are also known as solid polyurethane fenders. The internal buffering medium is mainly closed-cell foaming materials, such as foamed EVA. , foamed polyurethane and foamed rubber, etc.
