•HPF-SR does not have harnessing and have ribbed surface hence are known as SLING type fenders.
•HPF-SR has thicker skin compared to the fenders with chain-net-tyre harnessing.
•Being sling type i.e. without chain-net-tyre harnessing; they render easier + faster handling & maintenance.
•They have less susceptibility to puncture as their skin is thicker.
•HPF-SB is most widely used for naval applications.
•Passenger vessels and where abrasion due to the harnessing is not acceptable.
