Put our seats to the test and see why maritime agencies around the world trust Shoxs to protect crews and extend careers on the water. We exhibited our latest impact-mitigation technology and provide on-water demos at this year's Defence and Security International (DSEI), the world's leading event for governments, national armed forces and industry.
Berthon Boats displayed a Gemini Wave Rider 880 RIB outfitted with Shoxs 5000 series seats.
On the water, the 8.8 meter stepped-volume monohull RIB is unsurpassed for soft ride, dryness, and safe predictable handling. Combined with shock-mitigating seating, crews remain safer and more protected from wave impacts at high speeds.
The high-density seating arrangement allows front and rear-mounted seats to secure to a common structure, while each seat remains independently suspended on its own isolator (shock). The design is well-suited for open RIBs where space is at a premium and weight is a factor. The tandem seats are deck mounted using the SHOXS TRAXS system, which allow seats to be easily re-positioned or removed to create more deck or occupant space, maximizing the safety and efficiency of critical "at sea" deck and seat configuration changes.
