Fendertex® Fenders are manufactured in France.
More than 4 years of R&D testing.
Yes. All fenders are inflated to 350mb for 48 hours before delivery.
The fender is recyclable and the French production facility meets REACH standards.
Yes. Custom fenders are available using the following guidelines:
Both a rigid and elastic polyester are used.
No, but salt can. The Fendertex® fender is made of a textile specifically designed to not retain salt.
We use a highly durable dying process; every filament of the thread is tinted before being spun into yarn. This allows the fender to retain the color for many years.
Not at the moment although we are currently working on making this feature available.
Alternatively, you can add the boat name or logo to the following:
It is the air chamber of the fender; it serves only to retain air in the textile chamber.
Polyurethane. This material has a very low porosity and is able to keep the fender inflated at the same pressure for several months.
Yes. The Fendertex® fender is more durable than PVC fenders. The textile is knitted in one piece, with no seam or weld, allowing no points of weakness.

The Fendertex® fender can perform in temperatures ranging from -30°C (-22°F) to +130°C (266°F)
The portion of the fender that comes in contact with the hull and the dock is knitted with rigid wire which is highly resistant to friction. When docking on an abrasive dock the use of a cover is required.

The fender is designed to withstand temperature variations without needing to manually inflating or deflating. The elastic thread located on the top and bottom of the fender will manage the air volume by expanding or shrinking the fender size, allowing the air pressure to remain constant.
No. A manual pump can be used for models C52 / C73 / S60 as the fender is inflated at low pressure. For the other sizes an electric pump is recommended.
The fender can be inflated with air and clean water. To provide ballast, when the fender is deflated add 0.26 gallon (1 liter) of fresh water through the inflation valve and inflate to proper pressure.
Yes. The fenders can be fastened by purchasing the Sheathed Reinforced Long Side Ring. Alternatively, the use of a Long Side cover equipped with 2 handles will work.
The shape of the fenders does not allow the D-rings to contact the hull. Care should be taken when handling the fender, and impact resistant, sheathed D-rings are also available.
