FOAM FENDER AND

Trelleborg Foam Fenders, Donuts and Buoys


all share the same construction technology
centred on a closed-cell polyethylene
foam core and an outer skin of reinforced
polyurethane elastomer. The foam absorbs
the impacts whilst the skin resists wear and
tear in an aggressive environment.

BUOY TECHNOLOGY

High energy, low reaction

Strong reinforcement

Safety rst

Core foam comes in many different


types. Lower density foams are
softer and generate lower reaction
forces. Higher density foams are
stiffer and can absorb more impact
energy. The micro-cell structure of
the foam contains millions of tiny air
bubbles. These reach an equilibrium
after a few compression cycles one
reason why the performance of all
foam fenders should be rated after
at least three full deflections.

Skin and reinforcement are


applied simultaneously a
method pioneered by and unique
to Trelleborg. Nylon filaments are
individually applied at the optimum
angle. Multiple homogeneous layers
increase strength, and additional
reinforcement is applied to both
ends where stresses are highest.
This system gives a final strength
impossible to match with fabric
layering methods.

No matter how badly abused,


Trelleborg Foam Fenders, Donuts
and Buoys will not burst or explode.
Damage is rare, but if the worst
should happen there is the comfort
that Trelleborg fenders and buoys
will still function until repairs are
possible.

Unsinkable

Wear resistant

The closed cell foam structure


makes punctures a thing of the past.
Every cell is separate and so water
cannot migrate into the foam. Even
after many years active service, the
foam core can be returned to the
factory, re-skinned and made ready
for a new lease of life.

The polyurethane elastomer is spray


applied. This creates a high quality
and homogeneous skin matrix
combining extreme wear resistance
with non-marking properties and the
option of high visibility colours.

SEA
GUARD
SeaGuard fenders can be deployed
floated or suspended, against a quay wall
or for ship-to-ship operations. SeaGuard
fenders suit all sites with small or large
tidal changes. They also work just as well
on new or old structures.
Hull pressures are very low, making
SeaGuard fenders gentle on soft-skinned
ships. The skin is very tough but also
non-marking, even against white-hulled
yachts and cruise liners.
Low maintenance comes as standard
because the polyurethane elastomer is
highly resistant to the effects of ozone
and ultra violet light. SeaGuard fenders
will never sink or deflate. Even at the
end of their first service life they can be
returned to the factory for refurbishment
before going back to work.

All physical properties are typical values which


can be adjusted to suit specific applications.
Foam density can be increased for higher energy
absorption or reduced for lower reaction force
and hull pressure. Additional reinforcement layers
can be added for extreme duty applications. The
polyurethane elastomer skin can be increased or
reduced in hardness to adjust friction and wear
resistance properties. The standard fender skin
colour is black. Orange, red and yellow skins are
widely specified for maximum visibility, grey is
common for navy applications and almost any other
colour is available on special request. Please ask for
further details.

on 1st cycle performance. Always use
3rd cycle performance depending on
application, required safety factors and
other parameters.

SEA
CUSHION
SeaCushion fenders are designed
for hard work. The superior grade of
foam core, an extra tough skin plus
chain-tyre net make SeaCushions
the most rugged floating fender on
the market.
This means SeaCushions are
perfect for the most demanding
applications: open water ship-to-ship
operations, offshore structures or
anywhere needing absolute fender
reliability. Whatever else happens,
SeaCushion will not deflate, burst or
sink.
Efficiency is excellent too. For the
same energy, SeaCushion fenders
have lower reactions than pneumatic
types. Hull pressures are very low
too at just 172kN/m2 for STD-grades
(even less for LR-grades) well within
PIANC guidelines for LNG vessels.

DONUT
FENDERS
Donut Fenders are an effective
solution for simple berthing dolphins,
guiding and turning structures. The
buoyant Donut floats up and down a
single tubular pile and freely rotates
to help align or redirect ships.
The internal casing has long
lasting, low-friction bearings which
need minimal maintenance. The
foam is unsinkable and cannot
burst or deflate. The Donut skin is
durable polyurethane reinforced with
continuous nylon filaments.
Donut Fenders are custom
designed for every application. They
can have supplementary buoyancy to
present a raised contact face. The
body can be additionally protected
with SeaTimber rubbing strips to
cope with ferry beltings. Bright
colours are often used to improve
visibility and safety.

SEAFLOAT
SeaFloat buoys are resilient
surface floats for inland waterways,
navigation channels and offshore
applications. Various types of
SeaFloat are available, each sharing
the same robust construction and
high performance materials.
They also offer significant
advantages over conventional steel
buoys. SeaFloat buoys are lighter
and easier to handle. They offer
better corrosion resistance. Being
foam filled, SeaFloats will never sink
or burst. They can even withstand
collisions by passing vessels with
little risk of damage.

SEAFLOAT
Built to last
Reinforced elastomer skin
SeaFloat buoys have a nylon filament reinforced
polyurethane skin which has excellent resistance to water,
oil, ice, strong sunlight and abrasive surfaces. It remains
flexible even at -40C (-40F) making it suitable for
Tropical or Arctic operations.

Energy absorbing
The SeaFloat buoy absorbs impact energy so colliding
vessels will not damage the buoy or themselves.

Unsinkable foam
Only closed-cell foams are used in SeaFloat buoys. The
closed-cell matrix of the foam means it does not absorb
water even if cut or damaged. This makes SeaFloat buoys
impossible to sink.

Permanent colours
The polyurethane skin is pigmented through its entire
thickness, so colours will not wear off and will never
need repainting. A wide choice of bright colours can help
improve safety and identification.

Custom engineered

Optional tting

Every SeaFloat is engineered to suit the application. We


can advise on operating needs, load requirements and
other features to suit every case.

End ttings
A variety of SeaFloat end fittings are available. All are
made of steel either galvanised or painted to protect
against corrosion.

Quality
SeaFloats must be reliable. We closely monitor all raw
materials and manufacturing processed from start to
finish for a highly dependable, long lasting product. At the
end of their service lives, most buoys can be returned to
the factory where they can be remanufactured as good
as new.
