Wheel fenders are widely used on marine environments with exposed corners to help ships maneuver into berths and narrow channels such as locks and dry-dock entrances.
The main axle slides on bearings and the wheel reacts against back rollers to provide high energy and minimal rolling resistance, whilst the stainless steel and composite Trelleborg Orkot® bearings are almost zero maintenance.
