Coir Side Fenders
Our coir side fenders offer you a 100% natural alternative to standard rubber fenders. These side fenders give you similar impact absorption and protective properties that you would typically find in rubber fenders. However, our coir side fenders are able to protect you at a fraction of the weight. This makes them extremely versatile. You can easily raise and lower them as you wish, and the fact that they don’t require and adhesive means you can take them with you should you upgrade your vessel.
These coir fenders are handmade specifically for us by experts in India. This is because the process they use to create the fenders requires a lot of time and skill to perfect. To begin with, they carefully extract the natural fibres from the outside husk of a coconut to form coir. They then soak the extract in a slow-moving body of water to allow the fibres to soften, making them easier to manipulate. Once soaked, the fibres are elastic enough to twist and once set it holds a curl as though permanently waved.
We offer coir fenders in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on your specific needs, you can view our full range of coir fenders here.
