An essential consideration of a Quick Release Hook system is selecting a complementary fender system that effectively cushions and protects against impacts between a ship and other vessels, berth, jetties, and piers.
To meet the wide-ranging safety requirements of fender systems, Glen supplies all major classifications of fender types, including rubber fenders, foam fenders, pneumatic fenders, and tug fenders.
Glen’s fender system solutions meet all the quality and reliability standards recommended by the World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure, or PIANC – the leading global organization for guidance and technical advice for sustainable waterborne infrastructure to ports, marinas, and waterways.
Our fender systems are designed to meet a wide range of conditions and stresses, and manufactured from the highest quality materials to ensure reliable, resilient performance.
Highly experienced in recommending fender systems, Glen’s expert design team will recommend the most appropriate system that matches our customers’ precise requirements. To enable this, a number of technical considerations determine the suitable fender system for each vessel:
To select an appropriate fender system, Glen requests operators supply essential vessel and berthing data to aid our recommendations.
For existing quay structures, the additional information is required:
GLEN’s rubber fenders are manufactured from the highest quality natural rubber and other styrene-butadiene SBR based compounds, to satisfy various performance requirements. Other special rubber is also available upon customers’ individual requirements.
