Cell Fenders


Cell Fenders

Cell fenders are best employed for smallest to biggest Vessels where Reaction Force is an important criteria. Among all types of fenders, Cell fenders offer minimum reaction per ton-meter energy absorbed. The very geometrical shape gives it sturdiness, shear resistance, compact Structure and the capacity to absorb energy equally from all directions. The Cylindrical buckling column absorbs axial loads effectively and buckles radially. This results in multi directional dispersion of energy. Cell fenders are the most durable rubber fenders available and are currently the largest molded fenders made. 2000-2500 mm high cell fenders are typically used for LNG berths. In order to distribute the reaction force, cell fenders are typically supplied with large fender panels, which keep the hull pressure low. Our Cell Type rubber fender is installed on docks to absorb the collision energy between ship and dock at the time of berthing. In comparison to common marine fenders, the design compressive deflection of our Cell rubber fender is increased by 13%, the energy absorption is increased by 17%, and the E/R.H is increased by 15%, on the condition that the reaction force is not increased. With higher E/R.H, this marine fender can be used for off-shore docks, especially suitable for dolphin wharf. This super cell rubber fender has no impingement steel frame at the head, which greatly reduces the surface pressure. The surface pressure can be controlled below 25 tons per square meter, upon request, so our Cell marine fender is suitable for large ships.
