The ParmaFender flexible dock fendering system is designed to eliminate the need for normal dock fenders.

The system – launched by Barrow International - consists of a continuous chain of air filled segments with a valve hose going through all of them to ensure fast and simple filling of air through the whole chain in one operation.

It is delivered in complete adapted lengths or coils which can be cut by the installer.

“It provides superior protection at marinas, fuel docks, private docks, quays or jetties – virtually anywhere accidental damage to an approaching boat or yacht could occur,” explained David Barrow of Barrow International.

In between each segment, there is a mounting surface for punch holes, mount screws or nails, without damaging the fender.

And by using adapted fastening strips, the fender can also be mounted without making holes in the mounting surface, such as for steel cantilevers.

It can also be placed around 90° corners.

“The thermoplastic polyurethane material is soft, tough and extremely durable compared to the materials that are commonly used for fendering products, even at temperatures as low as -50°C,” added Mr Barrow.

The fenders are coated to prevent staining of a vessel’s gelcoat.
