Tug Fenders

Bencros BTW Block Fenders, traditionally called “W-fenders”, are moulded rubber units mostly used on the bows and sterns of tugs, providing robust, heavy-duty protection.

BTW Blocks are also popular for pontoons and RoRo ramp ends. They are mounted via steel pins inserted through the twin holes which allows for easy installation and replacement.
