Marine Foam Fender
Luhang Marine foam fenders are designed to absorb the berthing energy of ships, whether at quay side or during ship-to-ship operations. Being manufactured from closed-cell polyethylene foam, Luhang Marine fenders and buoys will not absorb water, and are therefore virtually unsinkable - even when the outer protective, nylon reinforced, polyurethane skin is breached.
The foam is capable of absorbing high loads of energy, complemented by low reaction forces, making berthing easier, more gentle and safer - especially in difficult conditions. In general, Luhang Marine fenders and buoys require little maintenance. However, periodic inspection for damage and wear is required. Although our fenders cannot burst
or sink, they can be damaged. The precautions and maintenance guidelines are mentioned in the following sections, ensuring that your fenders and buoys will give you the maximum return on your investment.
Luhang Marine Foam Fender Features
Luhang Foam Fenders are manufactured to a system which is compliant with ISO 9001: 2000. We have also recently received a favourable CCS and BV inspection report on our manufacturing process, and have obtained independent laboratory-verified data on the materials we use and the performance under compression of certain fender sizes.
2. Performance and Characteristics
The high energy absorption and low reaction forces of Hippo foam fenders mean that the berthing speed of the vessel is cushioned upon contact with the fender - rather than the fender causing the vessel to bounce off it violently. This can be particularly important during inclement weather conditions.
Luhang foam fenders will never burst, and are unsinkable - even if damaged beyond repair. This gives the operator great peace of mind when it comes to ensuring both vessels and berthing facilities are protected at all times.
4. Infinite Range of Sizes, Colours and Densities
Our flexible manufacturing process allows us to build virtually any size of fender. Fender colours are typically black or orange – but the polyurethane coating can be mixed and applied in any colour required. The standard core density is 70kg/m – but we an offer higher core densities upon request.
5. Easy To Install and Maintain
Whether on the quayside or floating in the water, Hippo fenders are easy to handle and install. In the event of minor skin damage, this can be repaired easily and economically with a range of Luhang repair kits. Should extra protection be required, Hippo fenders can be supplied with chain and tyre nets.
6. Reliability and Peace of Mind
Customers around the world have been using Luhang foam fenders for over 15 years now - and we are not aware of any Luhang foam fender having ever failed in the field when used within the recommended guidelines. Even those fenders which have been severely abused still retain their buoyancy and ability to protect.
In addition, all Luhang foam fenders are supplied with a guarantee against manufacturing defects for 12 months from the date of purchase.
