In researching our inflatable boats we had a huge selection to go through before deciding on which boat we wanted to import and sell under the Oceans Brand.
Part of that research involved looking at the technology that goes into making a inflatable boat.
The manufacturers spend a great deal of money in the continuous improvement of the reliability and performance of the materials used in the construction plus the techniques available globally to improve. The most noticeable change in the last few years has been the move from Hypalon to PVC Coated Fabric
Reinforced PVC coated fabric (PVC) now is considered to be the strongest and most reliable substrate to manufacture an inflatable boat with
This gives a thickness of (0.9mm, 1.2mm & 1.5mm thickness PVC, 1100 Denier). The substrate is airtight and extremely robust and has undergone rigorous tests to ensure it is a strong as we can make it
Four Layers Seam
Boats are Hand Sealed at the seams and although this is expensive to do the end result is outstanding. All seams are reinforced with seam tape both outside and inside for extra added protection and security for the owner.
Each boat is tested before export and the following criteria is evaluated.
1.The air tightness
2. Tear Resistance
For the ultimate reliability and quality you can not go past a Oceans Inflatable for New Zealand weather conditions.
