Marine fenders and leading jetties
Marine fenders are meant to have a steering and leading function, for when a ship is close to coming in contact with a bridge, art work, sluice or another vulnerable construction. The construction of the jetty is place in a way that the ship cannot cause damage, or even worse, can cause unsafe situations. A marine fender can also be used as a mooring construction, for when a ship is waiting in front of a sluice. For the construction of a marine fender, wood is the best solution. When a ship comes into contact with wood, there is less (varnish) damage than when a ship comes into contact with a marine fender that's made out of steel, for example. Due to this, the wooden marine fenders are more user friendly, also when a marine fender is used to moor. Regge Hout has a lot of expertise concerning wood in hydraulic engineering. We offer all necessary wood products and total solutions to be able to make a good marine fender.
