Due to their shape they are ideal for big bow flares and general vessels. A strong chain is used to attach the tug to the tug boat rubber fenders. For larger fenders the chains are completed by circumferential reinforcement (sleeved chains or webbing straps). They are placed in particular opening at equal spacing throughout the length. The ends of this type rubber fender can be conical for convenience. Compose fender (with vulcanized or bolted surface) is used in special boats and tugs. Grey rubber was designed in Navy’s demand.
