The Rubber Company’s keyhole fenders are specially designed for Tug and Work boats but also used on quay and harbour sides. They are made from high abrasion resistance rubber with excellent resilience properties for the required application. These fenders are very tough but can still be curved around the hull allowing fixing of this product to be very simple.
Types of Keyhole Fenders
Standard keyhole fender systems are manufactured by extrusion or moulding. They will be extruded when in lengths and moulded when requiring blocks. They can be produced with either smooth or grooved face surface, the grooves providing a better grip. Like composite fenders, we can produce keyhole with a UHMW-PE surface plate to provide a low friction surface. We have a range of standard dies and can also custom manufacture keyhole fenders.
