LAMINATED BOW FENDERS
SEE DETAILS BELOW
Please specify hot rolled, cold rolled, alloy or stainless steel construction. Aluminum and hot-dip galvanizing also available.
SINGLE LAYER BOW
Model 100 A
DOUBLE LAYER BOW
Model 100 C
These fenders were originally designed by Schuyler, and are custom-built of durable nylon cloth-reinforced synthetic rubber – no other rubber is stronger. The rubber laminates are compressed onto high quality steel rods, welded or attached with nuts to end plates. The steel rod and plate frame is allowed to flex through the use of a patented hinge type assembly system. Chain links are installed top and bottom as specified, and the end plates can be flat or angle. Our fenders are manufactured for a tight hull fit. These models are also available with weld-tabs.
HALF ROUND BOW
This fender takes the place of old tires in tire type bow fenders. This fender is versatile and can be used in a number of places, including push knees.
The turk’s head is a universal bow fender, designed principally for the lower bow. It fits almost any bow in as much as it is adjustable and takes the shape of the boat as it is being drawn into place. It comes in two widths, 9” or 11”.
More durable and economical than extruded rubber. All weld-tabs (or continuous flatbar) fit over and are welded to existing bow box.
CROSS BLOCK BOW
Model 100 D
The rubber laminates are laid at 90º to each other and retained with a combination of steel rods and/or cable. This fender was designed for increased strength and durability required by large-radius bows and remains the most economical and durable alternative to extruded rubber.
