Polyurethane lining for ship cradles
Ridderflex covers cradles with polyurethane. Our polyurethane lining stabilizes the load and reduces the risk of damage during transport.
Ship cradles (transport cradle) play a major role in transporting components of wind turbines on land and sea. These steel structures allow safe transport of components or storage of monopiles, rotor blades and turbines.
Ridderflex is manufacturer of polyurethane products, material is always available. That means that we can supply quickly at an attractive price.
Especially for the wind industry
Ridderflex supplies amongst others polyurethane linings to construction and installation companies of wind turbines and components. These parts are transported on land and sea, using transport cradles. These steel structures allow safe transport of components or storage of monopiles, rotor blades and turbines. We distinguish two different types of linings for use in the wind industry:
- Steel surface covered with a protective layer of polyurethane and
- A custom-made support block for a ship cradle.
Lining: polyurethane protection
Ridderflex can cover your product, for example a ship cradle, with polyurethane. We can do this in different hardnesses and colours. A layer of polyurethane can be cast onto the steel surface of the cradle for protection. In this way steel-on-steel contact will be avoided and the risk of damage will be reduced. In addition, the load that needs to be transported will be stabilized.
Custom-made polyurethane protection for a ship cradle
Ridderflex casts custom-made polyurethane protection products such as support blocks. These blocks can be made to fit right in your ship cradle. Simply based on a drawing or model, in both small and large series of products. And in various hardnesses and colours. The block can be formed with a recess in which the rotor blade fits perfectly.
This polyurethane protection tool stabilizes the load that needs to be transported and reduces the risk of damage during transport. Our specialists will gladly advise you in choosing the right material. Please contact our sales department.
