SHOCK-MIT will show its new ranges of shock mitigation solutions at Seawork 2018.

The range has been designed, tested and manufactured in the UK by SHOCK-MIT, part of the Sea Sure group, to reduce whole body vibration via an under-seat retro-fit shock mitigation system.

“We’ve been creating innovative engineering solutions since 1956,” says MD Graham Brown. “And we’re particularly proud of SHOCK-MIT.”

He added: “Our original unit was a one-size-fits-all solution to aching bones after hours on the water, but we quickly realised that we could improve on that.

Lateral support

“Our second generation featured evolved movement and lateral support for real comfort, before we made the breakthrough into our third generation – that of engineering specific SHOCK-MIT series for commercial vessels, pedestals and RIBS.”

Together with on the water testing, the products have also undergone extensive testing on Sea Sure’s in-house drop test rig.

Data from both testing systems is used to further improve product performance.

“We’re able to improve and evolve quickly with our in-house design and manufacturing capabilities and have taken real strides forward to launch our latest units for different boats and seating types,” added Graham.

Commercial operators

And he said the product has received great take-up from commercial operators including the Swedish coastguard.

“As we are all well aware, EU directives mean that boat owners have responsibilities, so we’re delighted that SHOCK-MIT works so well to decrease whole body vibration,” he explained. “Our engineering can really help owners with their duty of care to passengers and crew.”
