RNLI – Case Study
E class is the fastest lifeboat in the RNLI fleet - specially designed for London's busy River Thames.
Fast, tough and manoeuvrable the E class was designed to handle extreme river conditions.
Crewed by 4 people who sit on jockey & bench seats - with capacity for 20 casualties.
Jonathan Young, Managing Director of Scot Seats:
'We are proud to have designed and built replacement seats for RNLI E class lifeboats.
The objective was to retain existing seat designs and improve the cushion performance.
The refit project needed to be completed quickly to ensure that lifeboats had minimum time out of service.
Utilising SKYDEX Impact Mitigating Seat Cushion Inserts provided a highly effective solution.'
KNRM – Case Study
KNRM Nikolaas Class lifeboats are a fleet of fast rescue boats used by the Royal Dutch Rescue Society.
Designed by Dutch Special Marine Group and built at Habbeke Shipyard, Nikolaas Class lifeboats are
having their seats upgraded to incorporate SKYDEX Impact Mitigating Seat Cushion Inserts.
Hans van der Molen - KNRM Technical Lifeboat Inspector responsible for WBV related matters:
'The seats on the Nikolaas class are non-suspension seats as it is not possible to fit them.
We are still aiming to provide our crew with the best protection given the limits,
therefore we are using SKYDEX for our seats on these boats.'
Velocity – Case Study
'Velocity' is a unique charter boat capable of hitting speeds up to 70 knots.
Built by Ribquest and operated by specialist UK charter company RibRide, the boat
features 12 passenger seats built by Scot Seats with SKYDEX Shock Mitigating Cushion Inserts.
Phil Scott, Founder and Owner of RibRide:
'A business case for running high speed passenger operations has to focus on the highest levels of safety.
Having investigated the options we decided on SKYDEX seat cushions built by Scot Seats.
Velocity has carried over 20,000 passengers. Not only have the seats provided shock mitigation to all
sizes of passengers - they have maintained their appearance, comfort and performance.'
