Rubber D Fenders
Harbours, ports, boats and vessels endure on-going strain from knocks and bumps, which cause damage and erosion. This requires continuous upkeep to maintain the structural integrity of vessels and structures. Aquaseal’s rubber D fenders and cylindrical marine fenders form a protective barrier for structures and vessels to minimise the damage caused by impact.
A D shape boat rubber fender works by absorbing the kinetic energy of a boat or vessel berthing against a jetty, quay wall or other vessel, preventing damage.
Fenders can also be used at loading bays for lorries, trucks and any other unique applications where a protective barrier is required.
We use a specially compounded 70-shore Hardness EPDM rubber for our rubber d fenders. This makes them resistant to degradation, UV radiation, seawater and other environmental factors. This ensures that our marine fenders are a sturdy and long lasting product, built to stand the test of time.
Marine fenders can be installed either into a channel or bolted onto the required surface. Installation can be horizontally, vertically or diagonally. This is a practical and versatile solution for many industries and environments.
Our marine fenders can be pre-drilled, pre-curved, chamfered and cut to specific lengths. This will assist installation and meet requirements of application. Our rubber D fenders have a flat rear surface, so they easily install on to flat surfaces.
Aquaseal produces each boat rubber fender through a die, using the extrusion method. In addition to our range of standard sizes we can help design bespoke fender profiles for your own special requirements.
Our rubber D fenders and cylindrical fenders come in a wide range of sizes:
- D fenders – from 20mm to 300mm in various D formats
- Cylindrical fenders – variety of sizes up to a maximum outside diameter of 500mm and a maximum length of 5m long
