The material of manufacture is polyvinyl chloride, which has long proven itself as resistant to stress, abrasion, deformation, ultraviolet radiation and harsh weather conditions.
The task of the fenders is to serve as protection for the ship's hull during mooring or joint mooring. They are suspended on chains or ropes from one side or around the entire perimeter of the ship, creating a series of shock-absorbing buffers to protect the expensive coating of a yacht or boat from friction and impacts.
Different types of fenders exist: hydraulic, stationary, inflatable. It is inflatable protective devices that boat owners buy most often since they:
- take up little space when folded;
- are easy to move and transport;
- can be quickly brought to a ready state;
- are lightweight and do not require permanent fastening.
Before use, the fender is inflated using a compressor until the required pressure is reached. Can be stored for a long time in the inflated state, but most consultants advise periodically checking the internal pressure and not pump it too much so that it provides full cushioning.
