The Ocean Guard™ netless fender design is the finest foam-filled fender constructed in the world today. The Ocean Guard™ nettles fender exemplifies state-of-the-art technology in fendering design and functuality. The Ocean Guard™ fenders construction consists of:
·A heat laminated 100% closed cell foam core that is high energy absorbing, with a low reaction force and cannot be ruptured. This fabrication process uses no adhesives, which decomposes after time therefore making the Ocean Guard™ superior in quality, durability and function.
·The Ocean Guard™ skin is constructed of tough and thick nylon filament reinforced polyurethane skin, which provides unsurpassed strength. The skins nylon tire cord is applied in a helix pattern during the coating that embeds the filament into the skin. This advanced process makes the Ocean Guard™ skin extremely durable to all weather, forces and marine conditions.
·The integral swivel end fittings provide secure point of attachment without obstructing, even when the fender is compressed. The fittings are constructed of top quality steel.
·The internal chain is a heavy duty, stud link chain that internally connects the integral swivel end fittings. The internal chain guaranties maximum pull through strength, even distribution of energy and stresses.
As the world's commerce gets smaller, higher demands on ports are made to provide safer berthing operations.
