SHOCK-WBV is a versatile shock mitigation system for new or retro-fitting to RIBs, pedestals and commercial boats to provide comfort by reducing whole body vibration (WBV). It’s been developed and engineered by Sea Sure as shock mitigation systems have become increasingly evident in commercial boating due to the risk of injury in the work place.
The range uses geometry-led design and shock absorber technology to engineer units for all boat types. Shock and vibration is significantly reduced which means much longer time can be comfortably spent on the water. All SHOCK-WBV units can be fine-tuned for different passenger weights, and different sea states.
SHOCK-WBV uses the highest-grade components. Aircraft grade aluminium plate and 316 stainless steel are used in onsite production in Warsash, Southampton. Tooling plate aluminium sheet is used as it has the tightest tolerances and is guaranteed to have no imperfections or weaknesses that may be found in other methods such as casting.
The range features third generation engineering. Originally engineered as a one-size-fits-all solution, SHOCK-WBV’s second generation featured evolved movement, lateral support, and geometry. The advances pushed SHOCK-WBV to engineer third generation solutions for commercial boats, pedestal mounted seats and RIBS because one size never fits all.
As well as being able to reduce WBV while seated, Sea Sure also offers SKYDEX QUICK-FIT Decking. Many water users also stand while being on a boat. SKYDEX Technologies, Inc. is a global leader in advanced impact mitigation and cushioning solutions. The company’s QUICK-FIT decking significantly reduces the body’s exposure to wave impact and helps to protect all passengers on board. The decking comes in 1.5m x 620mm x 18mm sheets than can be easily cut with a Stanley knife to fit into the floor of any boat.
