Yokohama fenders

One of MAX/ IST Groups’ top-selling product is our ISO17357 pneumatic rubber fender/pneumatic fender/boat fenders, a leading anti-collision device for marine application in the world today. These compressed air fenders are used as protective medium. Therefore, pneumatic fenders/boat fenders serve as protective medium against collision when ship-to-ship contact (STS) and ship-to-berthing (STB). A pneumatic fender has the advantages of massive energy absorption with low unit surface pressure acted upon the ship. It has become an ideal ship protection medium used extensively by large tankers, LPG vessels, ocean platforms, large docks, harbour and wharfs. The most appropriate type will depend on its application and the requirements of the equipment/facilities.
