How to effectively reduce the damage of dock rubber fenders

The main reasons for the damage to the rubber fenders of the wharf are in three aspects: design, construction and use management. As long as these three aspects are done well, the damage to the dock fenders can be effectively avoided or reduced.
1. In the design, attention should be paid to the selection, arrangement and fixation. The type of wharf fenders with advanced performance, reasonable structure and convenient use should be used first, and the position and spacing of the wharf rubber fenders should be reasonably arranged according to the wharf's structural type, designed ship type and natural conditions, so as to avoid the wharf fenders blocking the ship. The equipment for fixing the wharf fenders should be reliable, and at the same time, it should be easy to repair and replace, so as to prevent the wharf fenders from being damaged due to poor fixing.
2. During the construction, the work should be carried out in strict accordance with the design requirements and relevant professional specifications. Whether it is the production or installation of the wharf fenders, it should meet the design requirements and ensure the construction quality.
3. In terms of use management, we should focus on two aspects of work. The first is to strictly manage the use of berths, and try to berth according to the design ship type and tonnage requirements. For the berthing docks with large differences in tonnage and size from the design ship type, the berthing speed and berthing angle should be strictly controlled, and the berthing speed and berthing angle should be strictly controlled. To prevent the small boats from berthing at the big wharf, so as not to cause damage to the wharf fenders; the second is to strengthen the repair and maintenance of wharf fenders, and repair the wharf fenders that have been damaged in time to avoid further damage. damage.
