Marine Fenders International, Inc. manufactures the Ocean Guard™ netless style foam-filled fender exclusively. The Ocean Guard™ netless fender design is the finest foam-filled fender constructed in the world today. The Ocean Guard™ nettles fender exemplifies state-of-the-art technology in fendering design and functionality. The Ocean Guard™ fenders construction consists of:

  • A heat laminated 100% closed cell foam core that is high energy absorbing, with a low reaction force, and cannot be ruptured. This fabrication process uses no adhesives, which decomposes with time – therefore making the Ocean Guard™ superior in quality, durability, and function.
  • The Ocean Guard™ skin is constructed of tough and thick nylon filament reinforced polyurethane skin, which provides unsurpassed strength.  The skin’s nylon tire cord is applied in a helix pattern during the coating that embeds the filament into the skin. This advanced process makes the Ocean Guard™ skin extremely durable to all types of weather, forces, and marine conditions.
  • The integral swivel end fittings provide a secure point of attachment without obstructing, even when the fender is compressed. The fittings are constructed of top-quality steel.
  • The internal chain is a heavy-duty, stud link chain that internally connects the integral swivel end fittings. The internal chain guarantees maximum pull-through strength, even distribution of energy and stresses.

As the world’s commerce gets smaller, higher demands on ports are made to provide safer berthing operations. The Ocean Guard™ foam-filled fender reduces port and vessel maintenance costs and makes surface transportation more profitable with custom and versatile designs. The Ocean Guard™ is rugged yet burst-resistant and extremely safe. The Ocean Guard™ can be installed simply and is constructed to the current US Navy and US Coast Guard specifications making it the latest and most advanced netless style foam filled fender available today. The Ocean Guard™ netless fender is “ENGINEERED FOR EXCELLENCE.”
