D Fenders

Trident D fenders are the commonly used rubber bumpers across the world and they are produced by means of extrusion in an extensive range of designs and sizes. The flat back of this type of fender facilitates the easy installation of D fenders on various surfaces for the protection of ships and docks.

Types

There are three standard types of D fenders available:

  • DD fender with a D-shaped inner chamber
  • DO fender with an O-shaped inner chamber
  • Solid D fender without an inner chamber

Processes

D fenders can be fitted by means of bolts and/or strips in various manners: horizontally, vertically or diagonally.he mounting holes required are made through the side or through the top and bottom of the fender.

Trident finishes the fenders in accordance with your requirements and drawings. D fenders can also be produced vulcanized with required radiuses, which allow them to be fitted properly to a circular bow or stern. D fenders can be provided in specified lengths and the ends can be bevelled.

Applications

Workboats I Tugboats I Pilot boats I Fishing boats I Pontoons I Quays I Piers I Loading bays I Car parks trucks I Building interiors

Delta Fenders

The delta fender is a proven effective rubber profile for use in both marine and industrial markets and they can be used for various purposes, both inside and outside. This type of fender has a minimal contact surface and they are easy to assemble. A properly mounted delta fender has the capacity to absorb high levels of energy through the presence of a relatively large hollow chamber.

Processes

Delta fenders are generally mounted against a construction or wall with the flat bottom. The mounting holes required are made through the top and bottom of the fender. This part of the production is done according to your requirements and drawings. Delta fenders can also be produced vulcanised in a specific radius to ensure that it fits properly around a bow or stern of a ship. Most Delta fenders can be provided in specified lengths and the ends can be bevelled.

Applications

Various types of boats I Quays I Pontoons I Piers I Car parks I Warehouse and shop fittings I Bodyworks

Square Fenders

Square fenders are produced in various designs and sizes and they can be used for a wide range of purposes. The production takes place by means of extrusion. When compared to D- fenders, square fenders are used when a more rigid and stronger bumper is required for use in more severe conditions.

Types

There are three standard types of D fenders available:

  • SD fender-provided with a D-shaped inner chamber
  • SC fender-provided with an O-shaped inner chamber
  • SS fender-without an inner chamber

Processes

Square fenders can be mounted in several ways by means of bolts and/or strips. The mounting holes required are made through the side or through the top and bottom of the fender.

The fenders are finished in accordance with your requirements and drawings. Square fenders can also be produced vulcanised in a specific radius to ensure that it fits properly around a bow or stern of a ship. Square fenders can be provided in specified lengths and the ends can be bevelled.

Cylindrical Fenders

Of all the different types of rubber fender profiles, cylindrical fenders have been in use for the longest period of time already. This type of fender is well capable of absorbing forces and loads.

The wide choice of sizes and lengths also make them highly effective and suitable for the protection of the quays for the mooring of large and small vessels. Cylindrical fenders provide protection for embankments and they are also commonly used on the bows or sterns of tugboats and workboats. These fenders are easy to install and maintain and they can be replaced when necessary.

Processes

Cylindrical fenders can be attached to a wide variety of structures and in different manners. Installation is relatively simple and they can be mounted horizontally, vertically or diagonally using chains or rods. Cylindrical fenders can be provided in specified lengths and the ends can be bevelled.

Applications

Workboats I Tugboats I Quays I Pontoons I Piers

Composite Fenders

Composite fenders consist of a rubber profile with a wear resistant UHMW-PE coating with a low coefficient of friction. The two materials are connected to each other by means of vulcanisation to form a permanent connection. The rubber profile absorbs energy while the UHMW-PE coating provides low friction and appropriate sliding properties. Composite fenders are suitable for the protection of various types of ships and quays, especially where a bumper is required with a wear-resistant surface with low friction properties.

Types

Trident produces a standard range of composite fenders in block, keyhole and trapezoidal form:

  • Block composite fender
  • Keyhole composite fender
  • Trapezium composite fender

Processes

Composite fenders are normally mounted between two strips or in a U-beam. The required mounting holes are made through the side of the fender. Composite fenders can be supplied in any desired length and the ends can be bevelled.

Applications

Workboats I Barges I Tugboats I Pontoons I Water locks I Ports I Quays I Piers

Rubber M Fenders

M fenders are widely used on the bow or stern of boats or on the corners of docks or pontoons. The M shape of this fender provides flexibility and it can therefore easily follow the contour of a bow or stern.

This type of fender has a wide and flexible contact surface. The grooves on the top provide extra grip and three flexible legs to ensure good contact and sturdy attachment. M fenders can be mounted on a small radius and they are relatively lighter than W fenders. The three mounting holes in M fenders facilitate easy and accurate installation.

Processes

M fenders are relatively easy to install. Mounting often takes place with the help of fixing pins through three standard openings. M 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.

Applications

Tugboats I Workboats I Icebreakers I Barges I Supply boats I Pontoons I Corners of quays I Bridge sections

Cylindrical Bow & Stern Fenders

Cylindrical fenders on tugboats and workboats are often mounted on bow and stern mounted as the main push fenders. These fenders are often used on the bow in combination with Keyhole, M or W fenders.

Processes

Cylindrical bow & stern fenders with a diameter up to 1000 mm are attached to a vessel by a chain through the round chamber. Fenders with a larger diameter are provided with grooves in the circumference of the fender for additional mounting options with the aid of nylon straps or cables.

Applications

Tugboats I Workboats I Icebreakers I Supply boats

Types and processing of rubber fender bars

Trident produces fender bars in different shapes, sizes and lengths made from durable rubber. This type of fender is a moulded product.

Rubber fender bars are fitted with a steel plate at the bottom, which is vulcanised inside the rubber. The steel plate contains mounting holes so that the fender bar can easily be attached to any type of construction.

Applications

Ports I Quays I Corners of quays

Push knee & Protection plates

Protection plates are mainly used for the protection of barges and quay walls. This type of fender consists of a steel plate with a durable vulcanised rubber layer of various thicknesses. These protection plates are particularly suitable when the distance between boats or between boats and quays must be as little as possible.

Processes

Protection plates can easily be attached to the desired construction by means of bolts or in the case of barges it can be welded onto a construction.

Applications

Barges I Tugboats I Quays I Ports I Water locks

Arch & Element Fenders

Arch and element fenders have been successfully used across the world for many decades already. The relatively simple and very strong construction and durable rubber quality of these fenders provide very good protection for quay walls and corners.

Types and processing

Arch fenders consist of a single part and they are available in various heights and widths. The base of this type of fender consists of a steel plate with mounting holes for bolts which is vulcanised inside the rubber. As standard fenders are delivered made entirely from rubber

Element fenders are available as standard in various sizes and, as with arch fenders, they are produced in a mould. Both ends are fitted with steel plates, which is vulcanised in the durable rubber. The steel plates contain mounting holes for attachment to walls and panels. The panel on the front side can consist of a UHMW-PE sheet or a steel panel.
