Rubber W fenders
W fenders are designed for use in extreme conditions and to absorb excessive bumps and knocks. This type of fender is very suitable for application on the bow and stern of tugs, workboats and icebreakers. The grooves on the top of the fender provide extra grip and low pressure while pushing. With two flexible legs also allow for easy installation of the W fender with a large or small radius by means of guide rods.
W fenders are made from extremely durable rubber. Lengths are often no longer than 2000 mm and they are produced by means of compression-moulding. The most common dimensions are kept in stock and can therefore be delivered at short notice. W fenders, M fenders and keyhole fenders are not interchangeable.
W fenders are relatively easy to install. Attachment is often done with the help of fixing pins through the two standard holes. W fenders are available in various lengths and they can be cut at an angle. If the fenders are longer than one meter an opening for a support strip can be added.
W fenders are used to protect:
• supply boats
• corners of quays
• bridge sections
