Lord M a r i n e Fenders A re M a n u f a c t u r e d In 2 2 Sizes — L i t e r a t u r e A v a i l a b le

High-efficiency energy absorption is the advantage claimed for the F Series of marine fenders manufactured by Lord Corporation.

Intended for sheltered or exposed berthing facilities, these fenders are available in 22 sizes, with absorption capacities ranging from 1.4 to 124 foot-kips. They are used with wale or frontal systems, and capable of shear deflection with minimal change in energy capacity. F Series fenders are said to be maintenance-free; the elastomer used provides resistance to heat, cold, ozone, saline solution, and conforms to the ASTM D-2000 designation.

This fendering is a rectangular elastomer section with steel mounting plates permanently bonded to both ends. Used as a column under load, the long axis buckles, providing deflection and absorption of the energy imparted by a berthing vessel.

Some 7,500 F Series marine fenders are performing successfully at more than 200 facilities around the world. Shipowners and port authorities appreciate their performance, durability, economy, and maintenance-free dependability, the manufacturer says.
