The STIDD Shock Mitigation Bolster is designed for comfort and safety in long duration, rough open water transits aboard high performance craft. The suspension is passive for long life and reliability. The STIDD 870V53 bolster seat utilises Taylor Devices internal pneumatic spring suspension with hydraulic dampening.
The folding half seat provides comfort and support when loitering. The half seat can be folded away during high speed transits. The optional Mk5 armrests can accommodate joystick controls. Ballistic inserts allow the STIDD 870V53 to be configured to mission requirements and operator gear changes. The fold away foot support includes a non-slip tread plate. Components are non-corrosive and the welded aluminium alloy structure is hardcoat anodized. The upholstery is Hi-Tenacity Polyester with adjustable lumbar support.
The Taylor shock absorber for the STIDD 870V53 is a lightweight, robust shock absorber with 100mm (4”) of stroke. The shock absorber is inertial valve regulated Nitrogen pressurised type, with accumulator and status indicator. The Taylor shock absorber coil spring is factory adjusted to a pre-compressed height designed to support the weight of the seat carriage plus an average weight occupant. The shock has a knurled nut to compensate for lighter or heavier individuals.
An elestomeric stop decelerates the unit and prevents hard bottoming of the shock absorber under high loads. Vibration isolation mounts attenuate high frequency harmonics. The velocity sensing valve is tuned to a damping co-efficient derived from the craft’s forcing function. A Go-No-Go gauge provides instant visualisation of suspension system readiness.
