Shear Fenders for low energy applications - Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure

Shear Fender


Shear Fenders are unique because they have a linear load-deflection characteristic in shear but remain stiff in compression to support heavy loads. 

Trelleborg's Shear Fenders are easy to install and ideal for low energy applications. The top and bottom steel plates are fully encased in rubber which protects them from corrosion and minimizes maintenance. Piles and simple frontal panels are often used in conjunction with Shear Fenders. Movement in shear should be limited by chains or other mechanical stops to prevent overload.
