Fishing Rubber Fender With Chain And Tyre Net also called floating boat fender,pneumatic fender, rubber fender, yokohama fender,made by rubber & multi layer of rubber-dipped tyre fabric, is a leading anti-collision device for marine application in the world today.
Fishing Rubber Fender With Chain And Tyre Net have become an ideal ship protection medium against collision among ship-to-ship (STS), ship-to-berthing (STB) and ship to quay (STQ) . they are widely used for large tankers, vessels, docks, harbor wharfs and ocean platforms.
Fishing Rubber Fender
Fishing Rubber Fender which is made of synthetic-cord-reinforced rubber sheet with compressed air inside to enable it to float on the water and work as a shock absorber between two ships (ship-to-ship), or between ships and berthing structures when they come alongside each other on the water.
Note: Fishing Rubber Fenders have sometimes been colloquially referred to as "Yokohama Fenders" or "Yokohama type fenders" - ISO 17357: 2014 Ships and marine technology - High-pressure floating pneumatic rubber fenders.
Advantages of fishing Pneumatic Rubber Fenders
Fishing rubber fenders can be easily handled and installed with ropes or guy chains due to their light weight. It resists shear forces and maintains energy absorption levels when tilted to 15 degrees. At the same time, a low and relatively uniform hull pressure is provided.
Consisted of several synthetic-cord layers and tough abrasion resistant out rubber, they have consistent performance even under rough condition and cyclic load. The maintenance cost and damage risk are minimised too. The best material also ensure the self-buoyancy and extremely long service life.
Fishing Rubber Fenders Requirements
Fishing Rubber Fenders shall consist of an out rubber, reinforcement synthetic-tyre-cord layer, and inner rubber, vulcanized firmly.
The out rubber are used to protect the cord layers and inner rubber from abrasion and other external forces. This rubber compound have sufficient tensile and tear resistance strength to withstand anticipated weather conditions and severe usage.
The reinforcement synthetic-tyre-cord layer strong enough to maintain the internal air pressure of the fender
The inner rubber layer seals the pressurized air inside the fender
Fenders of diameter 2500mm and larger equipped with safety valve for releasing excess internal pressure when the fenders are over-compressed accidentally.
The properties requirements of outer and inner rubber material of floating pneumatic rubber fenders comply with ISO 17357: 2002.
Fishing Rubber Fenders' Type
Pressure requirements of floating pneumatic rubber fenders
We make floating pneumatic rubber fenders with 50kPa (pneumatic 50) and 80kPa (pneumatic 80) initial pressure. The internal pressure, endurable pressure, safety-valve setting pressure and hydraulic test pressure are also in compliance with the requirements of ISO 17357: 2002.
Test and Inspection for Commercial Floating Pneumatic Rubber Fenders
Acceptance testing and inspection for purchased floating pneumatic rubber fenders shall be based on the tests and inspections indicated below:
Material test of rubber - Conducted in accordance with the Physical properties of inner and outer rubber required by ISO 17357: 2002
Dimensional inspection - Shall be inspected at the initial internal pressure. Tolerance: +10%, -5%.
Air-leakage test - Shall be conducted at initial pressure for more than 30 min
Hydrostatic-pressure test - Shall be performed for 10 min at the hydrostatic pressure shown in "test pressure at 0% deflection". Maximum temporary elongation: 10%
Fishing Rubber Fender Performance
The performance of floating pneumatic rubber fenders shall be specified in terms of Guaranteed Energy Absorption (GEA), Reaction Force at GEA deflection, and Hull Pressure at GEA deflection.
All our Fishing Rubber Fenders are manufactured and third party (ABS, LR, BV, CCS) certified in compliance with ISO 17357: 2002.
