Tug Boat Rubber Fender
Tug boat rubber fender are often used on the bow and stern of tugs as primary pushing fenders. Their circular shape makes them ideal when working with container ships etc. They are fitted to the tug hull with a longitudinal chain running down the fender bore. On large fenders, these chains are supplemented by circumferential restraints – either sleeved chains or webbing straps, which sit in special grooves moulded into the fender body at intervals along its length.
Tug boat rubber fender has no damage to the paint as well as ship hull due to low face pressure and it is adjustable to any variety of shape with the flexibility. It is easy to install the grooved body with simple chain, wire or rope.
