Safe for excess load
The reaction force of a floating pneumatic fender does not increase sharply even under excess load. Therefore, these fenders perform extremely well under such conditions and, as a result, protect ships and mooring facilities.
No deterioration or variation in performance
Because pneumatic fenders use the compressive elasticity of air, there
is no performance deterioration due to fatigue. The performance of
these fenders remains unchanged at extremely low temperatures,
even below -50°C.
Safety and reliability
Yokohama pneumatic rubber fenders are constructed using several layers
of strong tyre cord and are therefore extremely resistant to pressure and
cutting. The larger sizes (2.5m dia upward) are fitted with a safety valve to prevent accidents in the event of over compression.
