Main areas of use and tips for rubber fenders
- Jul 23, 2018 -

Some anchor bolts for rubber fenders are designed with replacement in mind, but are often less than ideal in practical use. The original design of the rubber fender is intended to facilitate the repair and replacement of the anchor bolts. However, in actual use, it cannot be replaced due to corrosion of the iron parts, deformation of the bolts, etc., thereby affecting the quality of the rubber fenders and causing the rubber fenders. Fall off and peel off.

If the rubber fender is loose, out of position, falling off into the sea and other abnormal phenomena. The main cause of this phenomenon is that the technical conditions of the bolts or chains that anchor the fenders are not good, or the maintenance has not kept up. Metal materials such as anchor bolts and chains of fixed fenders are extremely rusted in the marine environment and are not easily replaced, resulting in poor fixing of the rubber fenders, which may seriously affect the normal use of the fenders.

Rubber fenders are usually used in ships, ships, ships, docks, etc.; due to their self-floating characteristics, they are also particularly suitable for docking devices with large tidal levels. Among them, the filled rubber fender is especially suitable for applications in harsh environments due to its maintenance-free and short life. The floating rubber fender is a relatively new type of fender equipment. Compared with the solid rubber fender, its main features are large compression deformation, large energy absorption, small reaction force, self-floating and easy installation.
