Description

The SHOCK-WBV: R-series is designed to fit on standard sized fibreglass boxes found on most RIBs, being significantly narrower and longer than other shock mitigation products.
With a unit height of 170mm, some fibreglass boxes may need slight height alterations for a retro-fit, or a new fibreglass box can be supplied at a price still significantly cheaper than offshore military style equivalents.
The R-series is long and narrow to fit standard RIB seats.
As such it features three moving hinges on each side (compared to two on other SHOCK-WBV units).
The hinges add extra support along the length of the unit, and decrease lateral movement and unwanted twisting.
The performance of these small but significant features helps to give a very comfortable ride.

Why SHOCK-WBV?

SHOCK-WBV is a seat suspension system specifically designed, tested and manufactured in the UK, to significantly reduce shock and whole-body vibration (WBV).
 

Now powered by World leading Shock Absorber manufacturer FOX.

Because one size never fits all, SHOCK -WBV features third generation design and engineering with units specifically made for commercial vessels (C-series), pedestal mounted seats (P-series) and RIBs (R-series). Each of SHOCK-WBV’s series of seat suspension units are engineered for comfort and are straightforward to adjust for passenger weight and sea conditions.

SHOCK -WBV can be fitted to new boats (or retrospectively by owners) to reduce shock and WBV. Retro-fitting on inshore commercial and leisure boats is a straightforward, cost effective process that will significantly increase the time spent on the water in comfort

SHOCK -WBV only uses the highest grade components. Aircraft grade aluminium plate and 316 stainless steel are used in onsite production in Warsash, Hampshire. Sheet material has higher integrity and tighter tolerances than cast aluminium. It provides strength, reduces weight and increases lateral stability.
