Rubber Fenders/Rubber Buffers are usually installed on dock or ship, which could absorb collision energy during ships are landing. This will protect both ship and dock.
Normally there are two types of rubber fenders: Solid rubber fender and floating rubber fender. Solid rubber feners has been used for a long history since it is easily to be made and long time life.

Floating rubber fender has a short history but because their good property, now floating fenders are widely used in ship industry. Commonly there are two type floating rubber fender: Pneumatic rubber fender and Filled rubber fender.
1.low reaction force,high energy absorption
2.performance free from the influence of ship inclining
3.applicable for dry docks and corner wharf
