Standard Shapes

The size of the fenders required for each boat depends on various factors:
vessel size, weight, windage and freeboard height.

Fendertex Cylindrical Fender

The cylindrical fender is the most common fender shape. Built with stainless steel D-rings located at the top and a strap at the bottom, this fender can be positioned vertically or horizontally (with long side option).

Fendertex Spherical Fender

The spherical fender is often used as a hand held fender during maneuvers due to its width, but is also used as a standard fender on larger vessels.

Fendertex Tandem Fender

The tandem fender dual tube design prevents it from rolling on itself and protects a larger area than other shaped fenders.
