The fenders have being designed with thick external walls which are highly resistant to tearing. This provides a solution which is both cost-effective and durable,” says Israel Mohlabakoe, Director, Gauteng Rubber and Seal Company.
Trelleborg Marine Systems is one of the few marine fender manufacturers in the world to carry approval from Pianc- the International Navigation Association - for its products. “Pianc certification lets you know that you have acquired a quality product.
