SHOCK-WBV shock mitigation ranges at Seawork
SHOCK-WBV will showcase its new ranges of shock mitigation solutions designed for combating whole body vibration at Seawork 2018.
Built to reduce whole body vibration via an under-seat retro-fit shock mitigation system, SHOCK-WBV’s new ranges are specifically designed for commercial vessels (C-series), pedestals (P-series) and RIBS (R-series).
“We’ve been creating innovative engineering solutions since 1956,” says Graham Brown, managing director. “And we’re particularly proud of SHOCK-WBV. Our original unit was a one-size-fits-all solution to aching bones after hours on the water, but we quickly realised that we could improve on that. Our second generation featured evolved movement and lateral support for real comfort, before we made the breakthrough into our third generation – that of engineering specific SHOCK-WBV series for commercial vessels, pedestals and RIBS.
"We are able to improve and evolve quickly with our in-house design and manufacturing capabilities and have taken real strides forward to launch our latest units for different boats and seating types.”
The ranges are developed and manufactured in Warsash, Southampton by parent company Sea Sure. Each series is carefully designed and tested multiple times. As well as hundreds of hours on the water testing, SHOCK-WBV is also tested on Sea Sure’s in-house ISO certified drop test rig. Data from both testing systems are used through development to further improve the performance.
Sea Sure will be exhibiting at Seawork on stand Q32.
