UHMW PE Sliding & Panel Fenders

 

UHMW-PE Sliding Fenders

Construction:
DockGuard’s Sliding Fenders are UHMW-PE rubbing strips manufactured and machined in sizes to suit your application. Extremely hard wearing and highly resistant, they are an environmentally beneficial alternative to timber or rubber facings as well as providing a low maintenance, low friction and low cost solution.

Energy/Technical:
UHMW-PE Sliding Fenders can be supplied pre- drilled for easy installation and chamfered to avoid snagging. They are available in a full range of colours – either to suit the aesthetics of the installation, to match corporate colour schemes or in high visibility colours for added safety and easier quay/jetty identification.

Key benefits: UHMW-PE fenders are an environmentally responsible alternative to tropical hardwoods and are fully recyclable. They also provide the benefits of higher wear resistance (even greater than steel) and lower maintenance; as they do not split or rot and are fully resistant to infestation from marine borers.
The low friction coefficient and high abrasion resistance of UHMW-PE provides an ultra smooth surface for the vessel to slide easily along the face of the fender.     

                                                                                                                          
Applications:
UHMW-PE Sliding Fenders are used in many applications including the replacement of timber piles, beams and dolphins, as well as other applications where lumber would have been the traditional fendering material. They are also ideal wherever the requirement is for a durable sliding surface rather than energy absorption.


UHMW-PE Panel Fenders

Construction: DockGuard’s panel Fenders are UHMW-PE 1000 Grade manufactured and machined in sizes to suit the panel. They fixed to the panel generally with M16 St St studs that are welded to the skin of the panel. The minimum wear allowance on the PE is 12mm


Energy/Technical: UHMW-PE Panel Fenders are supplied pre- drilled for easy installation and chamfered to avoid snagging. The PE normally arrives on site pre fitted to the steel panel. They are available in a full range of colours – either to suit the aesthetics of the installation, to match corporate colour schemes or in high visibility colours for added safety and easier quay/jetty identification.

Key benefits: UHMW-PE Panel fenders provide the benefits of higher wear resistance (even greater than steel) and lower maintenance; as they do not split or rot and are fully resistant to infestation from marine borers.
The low friction coefficient and high abrasion resistance of UHMW-PE provides an ultra smooth surface for the vessel to slide easily along the face of the fender.
