King Fender Post

King Fender Post

A barge bumper engineered to allow smaller vessels to berth with an oil and gas platform

King fender posts are used in conjunction with our shock cells; composed of high quality steel they are mounted onto shock cells and come into direct contact with any berthing vessel or barge. As steel does not deform easily, king fender posts are most often used as boat landing systems for smaller vessels which usually have protective fenders installed onto their hulls.

Along with fabricating these sturdy fender posts in our own manufacturing plant to ensure their high quality, Trelleborg's engineered products operation also offers a range of unique services. We can use Finite Element Analysis to mimic our fender posts’ performance in adverse sea and weather conditions, tailoring a design to meet rigorous performance specifications. Our engineering team also take into consideration vessel displacement, berthing speed, uneven impact loads and tidal conditions to assure our king fender posts’ performance.

Trelleborg's engineered products operation can also design and fabricate other barge bumpers, such as fender posts and guide posts.
