Last month, JIER JCO 500H Cone Fenders have been passed the 3000 Times Durability Test under the inspection of Third Party – Bureau Veritas.
JIER FENDER was carried out durability test in accordance to PIANC 2002 “Guidelines for the Design of Fender Systems”, Appendix A, section 7.2. The test consisted of 3000 deflections and its rated deflection at a period of no more than 150 seconds.
【PIANC 2002 Guidelines for the Design of Fender Systems, Appendix A, section 7.2】
7.2.1 Each combination of fender type and energy absorbing material shall be tested for durability to insure its suitability to withstand repeated deflections without enough recovery time to return to original performance characteristics.
7.2.2 The test specimen may not be smaller than the smallest fender of the same basic design offered for sale. The specimen L/H ratio may not be less than the lowest ratio of any catalogues model of the same, basic design.
7.2.3 Before the test begins, stabilize the specimen’s temperature to +23℃ +5℃ per Section 5.1, Temperature Stabilization. Do not artificially cool the specimen during the test.
7.2.4 The test shall consist of 3,000 deflections of the specimen to its rated deflection at a maximum period of 150 seconds.
7.2.5 The criterion for successful completion of the durability test is no cracks or defects visible to be naked eye after the 3,000 deflections.
