Cylindrical Fenders

Cylindrical Fenders

Historically cylindrical rubber fenders have been the proven choice when it comes to berthing and hull protection. Common throughout the world these impact resistant, hard wearing fenders can be seen in all types of operating conditions.

At Bencros we have the machinery, processes and experience to produce all types and variations to suit your design requirements.
Extruded profiles of up to and including 300mm outer diameter can be supplied to any reasonable length, moulded fenders can currently be supplied up to 2000mm outer diameter in standard lengths. ( see chart for options ).
A third choice which is preferred by designers, is the rolled strip method, which involves wrapping high quality Natural rubber/SBR compound around a mandrill, providing the option to produce a tough, and flexible, impact resistant shock absorber, ideal for curving around bow sections, particularly on tugs and workboats.
Lengths of up to 13 metres have been achieved in the past depending upon which option chosen

Installation

Cylindrical fenders can be mounted horizontally, vertically or diagonally depending upon the application and working environment.
The fenders can be held in position by means of a tribearing bracket, steel plate with chains and shackles, or the simpler chain and mounting plate method which is the norm on the smaller diameter units.
In the case of vessel fenders the tubular sections are typically fixed to the hull by means of a strapping method.
