  • Reinforced laminated rubber sections compressed onto 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" steel rods and secured with heavy-duty steel flatbar or angle
  • Entire length of fender can be welded directly to push knee structure
  • Provides up to 500% more rubber protection (1" vs. 2") as compared to molded rubber
  • Tough plies of reinforced rubber virtually eliminates chipping, unlike molded rubber or wood plank bumpers
  • Compression tests have demonstrated maxi-mum impact absorption and reflection (see insert for load deflection/energy absorption)
  • Air cells can be punched into rubber sections to increase "softness"
  • Unaffected by salt water, ozone, and oil • 100% of rubber content is certified to be recycled

D-Guard Push Knee Fenders

Model 114B

  • Reinforced rubber D-guard sections are compressed onto 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" steel rods and secured with heavy-duty flatbar or angle
  • Weld tabs are compressed onto steel rods and are welded directly to hull
  • Each weld tab floats and works independent of other weld tabs thereby providing quick installation on irregular and damaged hulls
  • Rubber is tapered at ends to provide tight joint when two or more units are used (optional)
  • Provides up to 500% more rubber protection (10" vs. 2") as compared to molded rubber
  • Tough plies of nylon reinforced rubber virtually eliminates chipping, unlike molded rubber or wood plank bumpers
  • Fenders come complete with weld tabs — no need to incur costs associated with pinning extruded rubber into channel
  • Mounted vertically on push knees
  • Mounted horizontally as side, stern, and bow fenders
  • Compression tests have demonstrated maximum impact absorption and reflection
  • Unaffected by salt water, ozone, and oil
  • 100% of rubber content is certified to be recycled


Ship Assist Wrap Around Push Knee Fender


Covers top and one or both sides of knee structure — prevents damage during ship assist and empty barge service


Tow Knee Pads


Compressed rubber pads and steel bars or rods are totally enclosed with steel plate to form an integrated steel box which is welded directly to knee or fully integrated weld tabs every 12" which allow for quick and easy installation.
