TUG
FENDERS
Tug fenders must work harder, for
longer and under more extreme
conditions than any other fender
type. Tugs may be fitted with up to
four types of fender each type
serving a particular application.
As many tugs become more
powerful, some exceeding 100t
bollard pull, choosing the right type,
size and arrangement of fenders
becomes critical.
When selecting fenders, designers
should consider:

Cylindrical fenders
Fitted to the bow/stern of
tugs and usually used to push
against flared hulls and in open
sea conditions.
Pushing fenders
Block, Cube and W- and Mfenders provide large contact
surfaces for low hull pressures.
Their grooved surfaces
provide exceptional grip.

Side beltings
D, Square and Wing-D fenders
are often used as side beltings
to protect the vessel during
escort duties and when coming
alongside.
Transition Blocks
Transition Blocks are used to
provide a smooth interface
between side beltings and
bow/stern fenders.

information and advice.

TUG
CYLINDRICALS
Large cylindrical fenders are often
used as the primary pushing fenders
on the bow or stern of modern tugs.
Their round shape is ideal for working
with large bow flares (like container
ships), but are equally good for
pushing flat-sided vessels.
Tug Cylindricals come in diameters
to 1000mm and in very long
continuous or spigot-joined lengths.
A longitudinal chain runs down the
centre of the fender, supplemented
by circumferential straps or chains
which are recessed into grooves.
Tapered ends are also available.

Attachment
Smaller fenders (500mm diameter) are
usually fixed by a longitudinal chain through
the bore of the fender, connected to the hull
by turnbuckles to tension the chain. Larger
fenders often use supplementary chains or
straps around the fender.

Curve Radius
Tug Cylindrical fenders are made in straight
lengths but can be pulled around the bow or
stern radius.

M-FENDERS
M-Fenders have a large and flexible
contact face which exerts a low
pressure during pushing operations.
The grooves provide extra grip
and the triple legs give a strong
attachment to the tug. M-Fenders
can also be fitted around tight
curves, whilst their relative low
weight adds to tug stability.

W-FENDERS
W-Fenders are made for the most
extreme operating conditions.
Originally developed by Trelleborg
Bakker, the W-Fender is one of the
most successful fenders for tugs
in the world today. It has a unique
open bore design which makes
installation very simple. The flexible
legs allow W-Fenders to be curved
around most hull shapes.

BLOCK
FENDERS
Block and Cube Fenders have a
traditional keyhole profile which
is strong and ideal for heavy-duty
applications. There is a choice
of grooved or flat face fenders
depending on the required friction
levels. Where very low friction is
needed, Block and Cube Fenders can
also be made as Composite fenders
with integral UHMW-PE faces. This is
useful for tugs that operate in heavy
swell and storm conditions.

COMPOSITE
FENDERS
Composite fenders* combine
rubber for resilience and UHMW-PE
for low-friction and wear resistant
properties. The two materials are
bonded with a special vulcanising
method stronger and more reliable
than a mechanical joint. Composite
fenders are used where the
simplicity of extrusions are required
but with lower shear forces.

EXTRUDED
FENDERS
Square and D-section extruded
profiles are widely used as beltings
on tugs and other workboats.
DC and SC fenders have a circular
bore for extra wall thickness and
durability. DD and SD fenders have a
D-bore for securing with a flat bar.
Extruded fenders are available in
many other sections as well. All can
be cut to length, drilled, angle cut or
pre-curved as required.
