‘The Fender Quality Framework’ comprises research reports,
webinars and more. From design best practice to ingredient selection,
manufacturing to performance verification testing, it provides visitors with
access to Trelleborg’s near decade of in-depth marine research, which continues
to drive up standards for port equipment. The resource will be continuously
updated in line with Trelleborg’s marine systems operation’s ongoing efforts to
evolve best practice guidance for fender systems.
Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg Marine Systems,
said: “Ports need to have the confidence that their equipment is fit for
purpose to fully protect terminals and berthing vessels, while keeping the port
running safely and efficiently. Fenders are an essential part of this port
infrastructure and as such their ability to perform reliably day-in, day-out is
“Historically, the industry has undervalued this mission
critical equipment, with many often prepared to take a risk on low cost,
inferior alternatives. However, decision makers are increasingly giving whole
life costs greater precedence, which is naturally steering them towards high
quality, high performance fender systems. Trelleborg has long invested
significant time and resources to arm specifiers with the information they need
to take a smarter approach to fender specification, design and manufacturing.
