Seaward To Distribute Sumitomo Marine Fenders In U.S.—Literature Available

Seaward International, Inc., Falls Church, Va., has expanded its line of marine fenders with the addition of the Sumitomo brand rubber dock fenders for which Seaward is now the exclusive U.S. representative.

Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd., makes a wide variety of rubber fenders, primarily for docks and piers, which complement Seaward International's line of foam-filled marine fenders.

Seaward manufactures the Sea Cushion® fender. More recently, Seaward International developed the Floating Donut piling fender and the Sea Guard fender in response to specific fendering needs of the offshore and marine industries.

Seaward will be offering Sumitomo's Pi and Lambda fenders.

The Pi fenders have two outstanding features. The span of the buffers of the Pi fender can be adjusted so that a larger rubbing board can be fitted in order to offer lower face pressures, meet wide tidal variations, or cover a wide area of quay wall.

The Pi fender can also be installed either vertically or horizontally without the need for additional specific supports.

The Lambda fender was designed so that its face contacts the ship's hull evenly, offering stable performance during berthing operations.

As exclusive distributors, Seaward International will be able to offer a full range of support services to the U.S. purchasers of Sumitomo fenders.
