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.
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.
