Description FAQ

Foam Filled Fender is a type of floating compression fender. It is a new type of marine rubber fender that adopts the high tech and high elastic foaming EVA as the buffer medium as the core, spiral reinforcement in the middle, and polyurea coating outside with USA-imported special spraying equipment. Its skin is made of polyurea fabric, which is very wear-resistant and has low frictional resistance. The interior is filled with foam, which has high density and can easily absorb energy.

Foam filled fender has good floating performance, it will not be affected by the tide and the fender could be kept at an ideal water level. With high energy absorption and low reaction force, it provides the ultimate protection for ship-to-ship and ship-to-dock applications, absorbing shock even in corrosive environments. Applicable for pier and dock with large tide scope, and emergency standby purpose between ships.

Boomarine is a leading manufacturer and supplier of foam filled fenders, we offer a variety of foam filled fenders to provide cushioning and protection for vessels. By means of foreign advanced experience, we further developed the fender by using closed-cell and hydrophobic EVA as the core and polyurea fabric as the skin. This fender is widely used for big vessels, yachts, marine platforms, and ports. Since there is no air pressure inside the fenders, there is no risk of deflation, popping or sinking. No matter the level of abuse, our foam fenders will not burst or explode.


 

Features of Foam Filled Fenders:

 

-  Good floating performance, not influenced by tidal range.
-  Could provide various colors according to the client’s requirement.
-  Don’t need to check when using. No need for air inflation, good resistance to seawater, acid, and alkali.
-  No risk of blasting, high safety.

-  High energy absorption and reaction force from small to large, it’s suitable for open sea terminals, gravity port, especially for large tidal range docks and ship to ship, ship to dock.
-  Long service life up to 10-15years.


 

Applications of Foam Filled Fenders:

 

- Cruise ships
- Container vessels
- Ro-Ro and ferries

- Oil and gas tankers
All types of Berths



Construction Parts of Foam Filled Fenders:


Foam Core
The closed-cell EVA foam core used inside offers unsink ability during operation.

Outer Polyurethane Protective Layer + Nylon Cord Fabrics 
Specifically designed to seal EVA foam inside and to prevent any leakage.

Polyurea Spraying Coating
Permanent spray-on coatings that protect the surface of the fender body. It is more durable than rubber and flexible in all weather conditions; with no softening in heat or becoming brittle in cold.

What Types of Foam Filled Fenders Can We Provide?


There are two main types of foam-filled fenders:
Portable foam filled fenders: without nets (only the fender body), usually smaller in size.
Flanged foam filled fenders: can be equipped with chain nets, chain nets with tires, or without nets, usually used for larger sizes.



Installation Methods of Foam Filled Fenders


Fixed to the pier wall with constant water level

Foam Filled Fenders Fixed to the pier wall with constant water level

This is the recommended securing mechanism for fenders installed in ports with consistent water levels (such as locks) or seas with low tides (ie the Mediterranean). The chain is usually fastened to the top of the dock.


Fixed to dock walls in tidal range

Foam Filled Fenders Fixed to dock walls in tidal range

This is our recommended method when the fenders are installed on quays and/or jetties that are prone to tides. Vertically mounted "guide wires" are attached to the plates at the highest and lowest tide levels, which will keep the fender afloat and stay on top of the water at all times.
