SHD Marine Fender
OCEAN GUARD SMALL HEAVY DUTY FOAM FILLED FENDER
Marine Fenders International, Inc. manufactures the Ocean Guard™ SHD-Small Heavy Duty foam filled fender exclusively. The Ocean Guard™ SHD design is the finest foam-filled fender constructed in the world today. The Ocean Guard™ SHD foam filled fender exemplifies state-of-the-art technology in fendering design and functionality.
The Ocean Guard™ SHD 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™ SHD superior in quality, durability, and function.
- The Ocean Guard™ SHD 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™ SHD 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 and an even distribution of energy and stresses.
