WORK BOAT FENDER, the required functions and characteristics of fenders to be installed to ships are not only those generally required but also other characteristics as well. The function of the ordinary fender is to absorb the shock energy of a berthing vessel. However, work boat fender must not only absorb the berthing energy but also must resist the strong pushing pressure exerted by the ship after berthing. In addition, it must minimize any possible damage to both the work boat and the ship while redistributing the pushing force to the ship with as little loss as possible. Yet, it is usually in such a state that easy damage is possible because it has been used over prolonged periods of time under severe conditions.

SHIBATA Work Boat Fenders have been produced after taking into consideration all of the above factors. The selection of materials and the shape and construction of the fender are based on long experience. All Shibata Fenders are products of latest technology. The reputation of Shibata Fender among its customers is testimony to its superiority. Shibata also produces fenders for pusher boats, barges, plying boats and supply boats and in each case applies the latest technology and knowledge gained in the manufacture of its fender.
