Modular fendrs are compression moulded from a high performance polymer designed for long service life and low maintenance.
MV-elements are the foundation of many marine fender systems. These modular units are compression moulded from a high performance polymer which resists attack from ultraviolet light, ozone and immersion in seawater for long service life and low maintenance.
The MI-2000 fender systems suit very large vessels and high energy applications. They share the modular design concept with MV elements but with a modified fixing arrangement to allow greater deflections and efficiency.
Available in a full range of sizes, the geometry of the MV-element has been optimised for maximum energy absorption per unit volume of rubber combined with a low reaction force. Fully encapsulated steel mounting plates are vulcanised inside the MV-element to allow easy fixing. Bolts are located centrally on the base flanges to reduce stresses, but being recessed into pockets the fixings are well protected from damage.
The rubber unit is available in several standard lengths and rubber grades which, combined with the modularity of the MI system, provides designers with greater choice and versatility.
