Floating fender is a protective device used to protect the space between ships and docks. It is usually made of rubber, polyethylene and other materials and has good buoyancy and wear resistance.
Floating fenders are installed on the edge of the dock or on the water to buffer the collision force between the ship and the dock to prevent damage to the hull. It can reduce the impact and vibration caused by wind, waves, tides and other factors when the ship is docked, and protect the structural integrity of the ship and the safety of ship equipment.
Floating fenders usually take the form of columns or strips, which are installed on the fender frame at the edge of the pier and float on the water through buoyancy. When the ship approaches the dock, the floating fender plays a buffering and protective role, reducing damage caused by collision. At the same time, floating fenders can also provide navigation and docking references for ships, making it easier for ships to enter and exit the dock.
Floating fenders have certain elasticity and durability and can withstand long-term use and harsh environments. They are usually UV-resistant, salt-water corrosion-resistant and low-temperature resistant, making them suitable for a variety of marine and inland terminals.
In short, floating fenders are an important ship protection facility that can protect ships and docks from collision and damage, and improve the safety and efficiency of ship operations.
