Filled foam fenders are floating compression fenders suitable for a wide range of applications. It consists of an outer polyurea protective layer, reinforced rubber nylon cord fabric, and an interior space filled with foam as a crash-absorbing medium. Filled foam fender outer layers have extremely low friction resistance and are highly resistant to wear due to their strength. Impact forces are effectively absorbed by the filled foam fenders, reducing the combined forces acting on the dock/vessel at the point of contact. In terms of application, this kind of filled foam fender can be used for tugboats, work boats, pilot boats, high sea terminals, gravity ports, especially large tidal terminals. Filled foam fenders are also a viable option for ship-to-ship (STS) operations.
