Typical applications include crew or pax (passenger) seating for vessels such as as EMS response boats, VBSS, boarding teams, search and rescue, patrol, and tour and transport boats. . Due to its low weight and compact footprint the Shoxs 5050 is particularly suitable for high density layouts, where the maximum number of suspension seats are required in a limited space.
The 10 inch (250 mm) suspension travel is designed for use by high speed craft operating in the most extreme conditions. The Shoxs 5050 utilizes CNC machined, hard anodized 6061-T6 and 5086 H116 aluminum construction. Components include 316 stainless steel, 316L stainless steel fasteners and Titanium. The metal is clear anodized with a gray finish. The upholstery is waterproof, UV stable, mold resistant and hand stitched.
The back rest of the Shoxs 5050 offers an optional extension to create a larger front to back seat area. This will accommodate a stretcher across two seats mounted abreast of each other - perfect for SOLAS Boats that require a stretcher on board.
Since the Shoxs 5050 can mount behind the Shoxs 5605 or Shoxs 5005, it makes for a much smaller footprint on deck. The 2 seats mount on the same stabilization module or "STAB," so only one mounting is required to the deck as opposed to mounting two seats individually. The STAB can be directly bolted to the deck or secured using the Shoxs TRAXS quick release deck track mounting system. Refer to the Shoxs TRAXS section of the website for more information.
