The KPM Marine Captain & Engineer Seat is a full size seat suitable for all wheelhouse seating applications at at 500mm (20”) width with a full height back. Significant weight savings are achieved by utilising a monocoque seat structure. The total weight is 46 kg (100 lbs) for the seat and the suspension combined.
The key elements of KPM seat testing and safety are a double acting suspension system that absorbs energy in one direction when hitting waves and in the opposite direction during crash impact. The low overall seat / suspension weight reduces the dynamic force upon impact. The monocoque aluminium seat structure is designed to be compliant and absorb energy by utilising crumple zones which bend upon rear impact and absorb energy.
To optimise seat pressure distribution KPM cushions are designed to the correct firmness and pressure points are reduced by eliminating moulding contours. All seat cushions can be removed and used as flotation. KPM marine can provide the complete tested system including pedestal and floor fixings as specified by Annex 10. Features include seat tilt, weight adjustment, 4 point harness restraint, adjustable armrests and waterproof breathable fabric. Full colour options and embroidery available.
