The cylindrical fender is the most common fender shape. Built with stainless steel D-rings located at the top and a bottom strap, this fender can be positioned vertically or horizontally (Models C84 and larger will need to use a Long Side Cover to positioned horizontally). The Fendertex® cylindrical textile fender offers high abrasion resistance. They are ultralightweight, easy to handle, and can be deflated and folded to minimize storage space.
1 - Technical textile with low elasticity at the ends to compensate for the increase in air volume caused by high temperatures maintains a constant pressure of about 5.1 psi (350 mbh)
2 - Long side ring
3 - Highly elastic inner tube, water can be added to act as ballast for the fender
4 - A technical textile made from polyester with high abrasion resistance. Does not absorb salt, thus avoiding micro scratches on the hull. Easy to clean with water or in a standard washing machine.
5 - Retention strap to prevent deformation of the collar during compression
6 - Inflatable suspension collar with a maximum capacity of 1.5 tons of vertical tension
7 - Suspension strap is sewn into a cross for added strength
8 - 316 stainless steel D-ring

While skeptical at first, two years after outfitting a 75' trawler, I am a strong advocate for these fenders for many reasons. Besides the good looks, ease of handling, cleaning and storage (8 fenders in a large duffel bag compared with hauling 8 HTM-4's around the deck), I can attest to their durability and strength - no they won't pop and I get a lot of questions about that.
I look forward to outfitting all my vessels with Federtex Fenders as my clients experience for themselves the difference they make, and Tom with PYI Inc. offers great support to boot!
Experience them for yourself - you will not be disappointed.
Outstanding Support and Equipment. We purchased our new vessel and bought them fanciest fenders.
Excellent communication and speed of shipping. Overall a 5 star experience. Oh, and the Fendertex fender is fabulous.
Great fenders, will probably buy more!
The fenders themselves are very nice and customer service has been great, but the covers are taking easily 3 times longer than what was initially, and I’m still waiting on them. They should adjust the expectations listed for turnaround times accordingly
