Description

The Wheel Fender is more complex than the simply constructed Roller Fender. They are designed with maintenance-free bearings, typically from stainless steel, and composite material. Due to the Wheel Fender's design, using additional backrollers and a sliding shaft, they provide a higher energy absorption.

Wheel Fenders can be installed in various combinations such as

Stacked double or triple fender to cover larger heights in tidal areas
Side by side to guide the vessel through a narrow passage
Installed with an angle to cater for flare angles of the vessel hull

Wheel Fenders come in certain standard sizes but typically each project requires a unique design. ShibataFenderTeam would be pleased to receive your design input allowing us to engineer the correct type, size and overall layout of the Wheel Fender.
