2. Advantages at Inclined Berthing
(a) Pneumatic Fender
(b) Solid Fender
(c) Foam Fender
Distribution of load is also comparatively even because of the molecular freedom of air and high flexibility of the multi-layered cord-reinforced rubber membrane. This makes the body of a pneumatic rubber fender more shape conformant compared to solid or foam fenders, and thus able to better distribute the load along the hull of a ship or jetty structure during inclined compression.
