Roller fender is usually used to guide the ship to enter space-restricted areas. They are widely installed on the walls of dry docks and other restricted channels to help guide ships and prevent hull damage. It is also used to require lower energy capacity berth angles and lock ports.
Roller fender is also used to mount on a fixed axis supported by a special frame. It has a sliding shaft with a post latent wheel to absorb as large energy as possible. The roller fender has a fixed axis that makes it very suitable for the pier and the wall of the lock. The main characteristic of the marine roller fender is that when the ship is berthing, the fender can rotate with the ship’s displacement, and produce a certain deformation to absorb part of the impact energy of the ship. Roller fender is suitable for docks, locks, all kinds of restricted waterways, and protruding corners of docks.

What types of marine roller fenders can we provide?
Our Roller Fenders have two types, roller fender type A and roller fender type B.
Type A Roller Fener
Type A roller fender can rotate with 20% deflection during berthing which makes it can absorb part of impact energy.
Type B Roller Fener
Type B roller fender can rotate on three fixed axles, it has a sliding axle in front of two idler rollers to absorb the greatest possible energy during compression of the wheel into the casing.
Roller fenders can be installed in various combinations, such as:
- Stack double or triple fender can cover a larger height of the tidal area.
- Parallel to guide the vessel through a narrow channel.
- Tilt installation to accommodate hull.
