Donut Fenders are ideal for protecting locks, corners and berth entrances, and anywhere that ships warp along a berth.
Donut Fenders (also known as a ‘pile fenders’ or ‘monopile fenders’) rotate and float around a steel monopile. Its closed-cell, PE foam body absorbs energy and provides buoyancy. UHMW-PE stave bearings within the steel core allow the fender to move freely with changes in water level and keep rolling resistance to a minimum.
Built with the same Flosys technology as the rest of our company’s foam range, Donut Fenders are quick to install, and last for years with little or no maintenance. A full range of standard sizes, foam compounds and colours are available. We can also design custom Donut Fenders for specialis marine applications, such as submarine berths.
