Design, Manufacture & Testing

ESC can complete a preliminary assessment and design of the most appropriate fender system to allow budgeting and estimation for projects. ESC can complete this even with a limited information set.

Preliminary Design & Budgeting
Quality Assurance & Testing

Marine Fender Rubber is an engineered material that exhibits optimal properties in terms of cost, energy absorption, wear resistance, UV resistance and more. An engineered mixture of additives is used to improve the overall mechanical and wear properties of the material. The rubber utilised comes from the highest quality sources and is inspected and testing in accordance with the ISO 9001 Quality Management System. Some parameters tested are: tensile strength, elongation at break, compression set, hardness, density, seawater resistance, tear resistance, ozone resistance, abrasion resistant, bond strength and ageing. 

Marine Fender System Detailed Design

ESC has developed software that assist in calculating berthing energies for the project's complete vessel range which are then used to specify the optimal fender configuration which includes - rubber fender selection, frontal panel sizing and location, chain and anchor design and if appropriate cathodic protection design. These calculations are completed to PIANC guidelines by default with some special references to other standards such as Full manufacturing and layout drawings are produced to enable high quality production and comprehensive detailing for installation on site.

ESC's fender product line is comprehensive, with over 50 profiles and 5 rubber grades (low reaction to super high reaction force) to select from. The frontal pad fabrication facility (complete with blasting and painting) is in close proximity to the fender facility which makes factory visits and ex-mill logistics more convenient and efficient. Components such as chains and anchors are produced by pre-qualified manufacturers also in close proximity to the facilities.
