Softening the refit shock
Introduced to the UK-based RNLI in 1995, the Severn class lifeboats are to be refitted and upgraded with SHOXS suspension systems.
The RNLI has chosen SHOXS 4800 variant seats for the coxswain, helm, mechanic, navigators, doctor and crew and plans to refit up to 44 Severn class lifeboats with SHOXS seating.
“The volunteer crews of the RNLI head out when sea conditions are at their worst. Our goal is to keep rescue teams performing at their peak and to keep them safe while doing so with impact mitigation seating,” says Andrew Hughes, Business Development Manager for SHOXS. “We’re honoured to be part of their mission of saving lives at sea.”
