Marine Shock Cells
The DMI Marine Products line of Marine Shock Cells is a durable design for diverse marine applications. The most common use is for barge bumper systems, either alone or with an Eccentric Energy Ring (EER), as part of the Guardian System. The purpose of the shock cell is to mitigate impact loads between offshore structures and vessels during docking. The shock cell greatly reduces the magnitude of the impact load imparted to the offshore structure by absorbing the impact energy over an extended deflection. The DMI-SC Load Curve provides a soft touch for incidental contact and becomes increasingly stiff to endure large impacts. For additional energy absorption and reduced impact loads, The Guardian System is recommended.
