What is floating fender?
Floating fenders are placed between the berth structure and the ship, including pneumatic fenders and foam-filled fenders.
What is a Yokohama fender?
Yokohama Pneumatic Fender was developed in 1958 based on our automobile tires and rubber aircraft fuel tank rubber technology. . . Yokohama fenders are designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions, and we are committed to contributing to the offshore industry by providing quality products.
Pneumatic rubber fenders are mainly used in ship-to-ship (STS) and ship-to-dock/dock (STD/J) projects. Pneumatic rubber fenders are also called Yokohama fenders/floating fenders/dock fenders. This Yokohama fender has become the world's leading collision avoidance device.
The pneumatic rubber fender is quick and easy to install, keeping a proper gap between the hull and the dock or ship. These ship fenders play a vital role in the safe operation of ships berthing.

Pneumatic Yokohama fender durability
Constructed with several layers of strong tyre cord arranged at optimum angles, Yokohama's floating pneumatic rubber fenders are designed to distribute load and stress evenly. Extremely resistant to pressure and cutting, they are able to withstand abrasion during adverse weather conditions meaning they are ideally suited to harsh marine environments. Larger sized fenders also come fitted with a safety valve as an added precaution to prevent accidents in the situation of over compression.
Yokohama fender performance
Reliant on the compressive elasticity of air, Yokohama pneumatic rubber fenders show no deterioration or variation in performance due to fatigue or extremely low temperatures (-50°C and below) thereby negating the need for owners to make regular replacements.
Installation is simple and inexpensive, fender is supported by its own weight in the water. As such, it can be moored easily by means of a guy rope or chain, it can be removed with ease for transfer to another mooring point.
