Foam fenders is one kind of tough heavy-duty and unsinkable floating fenders system. They are often used for harbor, offshore and ship-to-ship applications. Foam-filled fenders have higher energy absorption with lower reaction force. Its performance is higher than the pneumatic rubber fenders and other marine fenders. Its self-floating characteristic ensures foam fenders are workable for ship-to-ship operation.
Netless foam fenders are without the chain and tire net.
Netted foam fenders are with chain and tire net protection. +
Floating Foam Filled Fenders Construction
Foam-filled fenders are filled with resilient, closed-cell foam. The skin is constructed of a urethane elastomer reinforced with nylon mesh.

HIGH ENERGY ABSORPTION FOAM CORE
The foam core is high-performance and quality 100% closed-cell foam, combined with our special laminating process, ensures the integrity of every fender core. This specific foam can provide high energy absorption with a relatively low reaction force. Even if the skin is punctured, it also is unsinkable without absorbing water.
TOUGH OUTER SKIN
Donut fenders have a rugged polyurethane elastomer outer skin, with nothing to snag hull protrusions or dock fittings. To provide added strength, the thick skin is reinforced with nylon mesh.
HIGH QUALITY STEEL STRUCTURE
Comprising through central steel tube and external load distribution flanges at each end. Heavy duty internal chain connecting the end fitting through central tube is applied to transmit tensile load through the fender. All end fitting of foam filled fenders are hot-dip-galvanized.
