We supply and fit Rib tubes for all makes of rigid inflatable boats.
All the Rib tubes we fit are made to order and custom fitted in order to fit the application and the hull required. The material used in the construction of most of our Rib collars is the internationally recognised ORCA Hypalon coated fabric. ORCA fabric has unbeatable protection against UV and salt damage as well as having a very high level of mechanical and abrasion resistance. Our standard Rib tubes are constructed from Orca Pennel 1300gsm material, although 1500gsm is also available on request for the more commercial user.
A wide range of accessories can be fitted to new tubes as well as being added to an existing Rib to enhance the aesthetics, usability and strength. These include: handles, wear patches, non-slip pads and additional protection areas, lifelines, securing points, bow cleats and fairleads, fendering, pressure relief valves plus lots more.
We can also paint your tubes
as with new products and techniques now available the painting and coating and restoration of Rib tubes has now become a great alternative to re-tubing.
If your tubes are still in a sound condition and just need cosmetic improvement the cost saving of painting over re-tubing makes paining a great option.
Our product is sprayed on giving a superb high quality finish that is 300% lighter than some other tube paints.
It provides a UV resistant hard surface that will retain flexibility that will leave a mould resistant hard wearing surface.
The paint can be applied to Hypalon or PVC tube material.
It is resistant to chemicals such as oil, diesel and turpentine.
There is a large choice of colours available including fluorescent, pearl, and metallic finishes.
We can even apply the product to new tubes if there is a need for the tubes to match in with a clients or super yacht colour scheme that is not available in standard Hypalon.
