Trelleborg Marine Systems is a world leader in the design and manufacture of advanced fender systems. Our high-performance solutions combine low reaction force and hull pressure with good angular performance and rugged construction. High performance fenders are used wherever demands are greatest: LNG and oil terminals, container quays, RoRo berths and bulk cargo facilities.
Super Cone Fenders
Super Cone Fenders (SCN) are the latest generation of ‘cell’ fenders, with optimal performance and efficiency.
The behaviour of rubber under stress is unique. We've delved in depth into the effects of rubber compound composition on fender performance.
SCK Cell Fenders
SCK Cell fenders have a very long track record and remain popular because of their simplicity, high performance and strength.
Roller Fenders are usually installed to guide ships in restricted spaces like walls of dry docks. They can also be used on corners and lock entrances where lower energies are needed.
Cushion Roller Fenders
Cushion Roller Fenders are used to guide pontoons and floating structures quietly and gently up and down their guide piles.
Unit Element Fenders
Unit Element Fenders are high-performance, PIANC Type Approved modular marine rubber fenders. Element Fenders are versatile and can be combined in unlimited combinations of length and dir...
Wheel fenders are widely used on marine environments with exposed corners to help ships manoeuvre into berths and narrow channels such as locks and dry-dock entrances.
Modular Fenders (MV / MI)
Modular fenders are compression moulded from a high performance polymer designed for long service life and low maintenance.
Ladder Fenders are very robust but remain flexible to reduce accidental damage and help protect the wharf when small craft berth.
Parallel Motion Fenders
Parallel Motion Fender technology can reduce reaction forces by up to 60% compared with traditional designs.
Arch Fenders are a simple and rugged marine fender system, providing reliable and trouble free service for a wide variety of berths even under the most severe conditions.
Cylindrical fenders have protected ships for more years than any other fender type. Cylindrical fenders are a simple and versatile marine fender system as well as being easy to install.
Extruded Profile Fenders
Extruded fenders are simple rubber marine fender profiles, usually attached with bolts to the structure.
Composite marine fender systems are composites of rubber for resilience and Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE) for low-friction and wear resistant prope...
Marine Fender Bars
Marine Fender Bars can resist high impacts and are suitable for a wide range of general purpose applications.
Shear Fenders are unique because they have a linear load-deflection characteristic in shear but remain stiff in compression to support heavy loads.
Marine Protection Plates
Marine Protection Plates (MPP) are resilient bumpers designed for quays where small vessels are moored, protecting both the quay face and vessel from abrasion.
Tug fenders must work harder, for longer and under more extreme conditions than any other fender type.
