  • Lifespan: at least 10 years 
  • Guaranty period: at least 24 months
  • Certificate: CCS/EC


1. Pneumatic rubber fender make use of inside condensed air as buffer medium, absorb ship attack energy, good resilience, large energy absorb, low reaction force, little surface pressure.
2. Slant compression performance doesn’t lowing down.
3. Good floating performance doesn’t effect by tide scope, fender can be kept at an ideal waterline.
4. Installation and taking convenient, it widely used all kinds of vessel, barge, large scale dock and dock with large tide scope.
