KPM Marine DS100 Seat is fully crash tested and type approved to HSC Code Annex 10 with DNV. The double acting suspension has tuneable down and return dampers plus 170mm (6.75”) of travel. The DS100 is a full size seat suitable for all crew and passenger applications at 500mm (20”) width and full back. Significant weight savings are achieved by utilising a monocoque seat structure. The total weight is 24.5 kg (54 lbs) for the seat and the suspension combined.
The KPM DS100 has been designed for additional comfort for longer offshore passages. Features include 12 degree tilt angle, lumbar support and adjustable pull out leg support for comfort. The larger seat profile includes a sleeper head rest added to give the occupant options in positioning for comfort. The unit can be combined with the My space unit for optimum flexibility.
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. 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. The finish is waterproof breathable fabric, full colour options and embroidery are available.
