Shear Fenders have a linear load deflection characteristic in shear but remain stiff in compression to support heavy loads. The top and bottom steel plates are fully encased in rubber for protection and for minimising maintenance. Piles and simple frontal panels are often used in conjunction with Shear Fenders. Movement in shear should be limited by chains or other mechanical stops to prevent overload.
The main features our Linear reaction curve Omnidirectional Supports large weights. Applications Cargo berths, ferry terminals, offshore boat landings and bridge protection.
