What Are the Advantages of Polyurethane Fenders?11/14/2023
Foam fender is a protective device used in marine engineering and offshore facilities. Its main function is to protect ships, docks, floating bodies and other structures from collisions and external impacts, and to reduce damage and injuries caused by collisions. Usually made of high-density polyethylene foam, it is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, pressure-resistant, and energy-absorbing.
Foam fenders have a variety of applications in marine engineering, including:
- Dock and ship protection: Installed on the edge of the dock or at the docking position of the ship, it is used to reduce collisions between ships and docks and protect the hull and dock structures from damage.
- Offshore facility protection: Used to protect offshore floating structures, such as floating docks, floating wind power equipment, floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, etc., to reduce the impact of external collisions on facilities.
- Water sports facilities: Set up foam fenders in water sports venues such as yacht clubs and sailing bases to ensure that ships are effectively protected during docking, take-off and landing.
- Marine engineering construction: In marine engineering construction and maintenance, foam fenders can be used as temporary protective devices to ensure the safety of construction personnel and equipment.
In general, foam fenders play an important role in the field of marine engineering, effectively protecting offshore structures and ships from damage and improving the safety and reliability of marine engineering.
