Functions of covers for boat fenders

Whether fender socks or fender stockings - the high-quality fender cover always fulfils the same purpose: it prevents wear marks from appearing on the fenders and thus on the hull of the boat. The fender covers are available in a universal size or individual sizes for all fender types, reliably protecting the ship's side from scratches, wear and friction marks caused by the fender itself. Furthermore, the fender sleeves prevent unwanted annoying noises when the fenders squeak against the rubber rubbing strake of the ship's side. In addition, the fender cover protects against direct UV radiation on the fender material, as otherwise plasticisers would dissolve from the PVC. In addition, the attractive fender socks enhance the visual appearance of the boat.

Fender socks and their quality features

To prevent abrasion on the side of the boat when the fender moves, the cover is made of robust, elastic colour- and UV-resistant material. Only from this high-quality material does its service life reach over 7,500 hours, 3,500 of which are under water. The fabric quality is soft, stretchable and washable polyacrylic - an indestructible loop fabric - but often also jersey, terrycloth or velour. Fender socks are usually available in navy blue, burgundy, black and anthracite, with or without logo/lettering. The application is simple, because the fender cover is pulled over the fender like a sock. The fender socks must be cleaned regularly, because the dirt in the sock that is produced during sluicing and slipping otherwise rubs against the ship's side. It is also easy to remove and wash the fender cover. Experience has shown that the purchase of fender socks is worthwhile and useful.
