Pneumatic Fender

Pneumatic fender have different initial internal pressure in 50kPa and 80kPa which manufactured should be according to ISO 17357-1:2014. Traditional pneumatic fender structure has outer rubber layer part,synthetic tire cord part and inner rubber layer part. Based on actual application scenarios and improving the safety factor, SunHelm not only strives for perfection in raw materials, but also optimizes the structure and production technology to make it have higher safety and reliability. 

Nowadays it has been accepted by the market has been widely applied in STS operation ( Ship to Ship ) and ship to shore operation. It has become an ideal ship protection medium used extensively by large tankers, LPG vessels, ocean platforms, etc.
