RIB (rigid inflatable boat) - combined boats, consisting of the inflatable balloons, which are made of PVC or polyurethane fabric (heavier than 1000 g/m²) and rigid plastic or aluminum bottoms. These boats can be equipped with outboard motors up to 75 hp.
RIB boats from fabrics (more than 1500 g/m²) can be equipped with the most powerful of the existing outboard motors or equipped stationary power plants.
Omega™ boat - 1100, 1400 g/м²; HEYboat 5509 and 5559 - 1050 and 1200 g/м²
PVC boat with an inflatable bottom (air deck) can be equipped with outboard motors up to 30 HP and it can have a high speed. An inflatable bottom of flat-bottomed boat allows to set necessary deadrise, thatgreatly increases its sailing and course-keeping qualities.
For the production of keel boats with inflatable bottom, or so-called, kelson, use a special fabric - a three-dimensionally woven structure whose two base fabrics are interlinked with numerous spacer threads. Since each spacer thread has got the same length they define the maximum distance between the two base fabrics. That way, the spacer threads produce a dimensionally-stable connection between the base fabrics.
inflatable bottom: Omega™ air deck - 1100 g/м² ; Heytex 2586 double-wall - 1950 g/м².
balloons - Omega™ boat 800, 850, 1100 g/м², Heyboat 2562 - 850 g/м², Heyboat 5509 - 1050 g/м²;
For the production of inflatable boats with motor up to 10 hp, canoes, rafts and catamarans used more durable boat fabric (weigh not less than 800 g/m²).
Used materials: Omega™ boat - 800, 850 g/м², Heyboat 2562 - 850 g/м², Heyboat 5509 - 1050 g/м²
Light and foldable boats are made of special PVC fabric. PVC fabrics have better durability, better resistance to mustiness, UV and mechanical damage.
For production small inflatable boats and kayaks use boat fabric from 600 g/m² weight.
