As any boat operator knows, fenders are a type of bumper that protects the marine vessel from damage when it bumps against a wall, jetty or other vessel. These fenders can be constructed from a variety of materials, many of which have very specific applications. One option that you should consider when you consider marine vessel fenders is timber. Learn more about these timber fenders, including the benefits versus other materials, and let our experts at Coastal Timbers help you choose the right fender for the job.

Benefits of Timber Fenders

One of the biggest benefits of marine vessel timber fenders is that they are easy to remove and replace. If your barge or vessel is out on the water, it is bound to encounter some trouble eventually. The timber fender will protect your barge or vessel from these unexpected accidents, and if the fender suffers damage, it is easily repaired. Another big benefit to timber, when compared to rubber or plastic fenders, is that a marine vessel timber fender system has an unbeatable ability to deviate the severity of an impact. Much of the energy is deflected upwards, maximizing the protection when it reacts. Quite simply, timber fenders are one of the best performing fender systems on the market.
