Parallel Motion Fenders - Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure

Parallel Motion Fenders - Koolan Island


Trelleborg's Parallel Motion Fender technology can reduce reaction forces by up to 60% compared with traditional designs. 

The panel on this marine fender always remains vertical but can cope with large berthing angles – even at 20°, there is usually no loss in energy absorption. 

Parallel Motion is a specialist fender system and its selection can only be used in consultation with local offices.
