Our product range comtains a wide range of Yokohama pneumatic floating fenders, Floating foam fenders, Naval lightweight grey fenders, Pneumatic floating submarine fenders and mooring buoys
Supplied by Fendercare to protect ships and mooring facilities, Yokohama fenders, which have been used effectively for worldwide ship-to-quay and Ship-to-Ship applications since 1958, are proven to perform safely even when excess load is applied to them. Yokohama fender durability Constructed using several layers of strong tyre cord arranged at optimum angles, Yokohama's floating fenders are designed to distribute load and stress evenly. Extremely resistant to pressure and cutting, they are able to withstand abrasion during adverse weather conditions meaning they are ideally suited to harsh marine environments. Larger sized fenders also come fitted with a safety valve as an added precaution to prevent accidents in the event of over compression. Yokohama fender performance Reliant on the compressive elasticity of air, Yokohama pneumatic fenders show no deterioration or variation in performance due to fatigue or extremely low temperatures (-50°C and below) thereby negating the need for owners to make regular replacements. Installation is simple and inexpensive, as the fender is supported by its own weight in the water. As such, it can be moored easily by means of a guy rope or chain, and can be removed with ease for transfer to another mooring point. Whilst some manufacturers of pneumatic fenders claim compliance with the internationally recognised ISO 17357 manufacture, testing and performance standards, despite failing to meet certain key criteria, Yokohama affords customers complete confidence by demonstrating full compliance with PIANC 2002.
Fendercare Marine is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of floating foam fenders. The use of memory foams for the fender core, which have high compressive strengths, results in an ability to absorb a great deal of energy during marine operations. This is complemented by low reaction forces, making berthing operations easier – especially in difficult conditions. Users also gain peace of mind from knowing that the closed cell structure of the foams used means that these fenders are virtually unsinkable and will keep functioning – even if damaged beyond viable repair. Although fitted as standard with highly durable nylon reinforcement to the outer skin, we are now uniquely able to offer Kevlar™ reinforcement systems to those customers seeking the highest possible level of protection from in-service damage and therefore, the best possible return on their investment.
Fendercare Marine developed the naval lightweight grey fender in co-operation with The Yokohama Rubber Company following extensive trials and input from the UK Royal Navy. Fendercare Marine has supplied Yokohama onboard fenders to many navies around the world, including those of Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Jordan, Malaysia, Norway, Oman, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the USA . In the past 10 years we have supplied the UK Royal Navy with over 2000 fenders, representing approximately 180 complete ship sets. Application of Naval lightweight grey fenders: Vessels carry the naval lightweight grey fenders with them at all times, for use at home, at sea and in foreign ports as utility fenders. These specially designed fenders are used primarily for two applications; ship-to-quay and Ship-to-Ship. For ship-to-quay applications the fenders are used to berth a vessel alongside a quay or wharf. For Ship-to-Ship applications the fenders are used to berth or moor two vessels side-by-side (double-banking) in port or at sea.
Fendercare Marine provides Yokohama pneumatic submarine fenders, which are used extensively by navies across the world. Fendercare Marine has supplied Yokohama submarine fenders to many navies around the world, including those of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Greece, Japan, the United Kingdom and the USA. The Yokohama submarine fender was launched in 1984 and since then has been extensively used by navies across the world. Advantages of fenders over alternative, traditional berthing methods include: Cost effective replacement for deep water catamarans Easily moved to provide flexibility in berthing Easily transported to provide emergency berthing facilities Maintenance requirement almost non-existent Unaffected by extreme climatic conditions Bespoke sub-surface flotation: Fendercare Marine can also provide bespoke sub-surface flotation for submarines. We were involved in detailed consulting, design and manufacturing for the most complex sets of submersible buoyancy ever produced, for our sister company JFD's deep search and rescue (DSAR) submarine rescue vehicle .
We offer a best-in-class mooring buoy solution to our customers' requirements, either from our vast stock of standard products, or designing bespoke solutions to meet specific applications. As well as standard steel cast buoys, Fendercare Marine has pioneered the development of advanced materials for superior performance in challenging conditions, including rotationally moulded polyethylene and elastomer type buoys.
We design and manufacture our sub-surface buoyancy solutions to suit the application and depth rating performance requirements of our customers, ensuring maximum product life and integrity at minimum cost. Fendercare Marine provides sub-surface buoyancy solutions for a range of applications, including: Pipeline installation buoys Modsyn™ top-up buoys, general subsea installation buoys Transponder collars Modular subsea buoys Distributed buoyancy modules Submersible/ROV/AUV buoyancy systems
Our open link mooring chain is available in self coloured, black bitumastic painted or galvanised finish as required, manufactured to the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) guidelines and fully tested and class certified.
