Shoxs 5005 is a purpose built shock mitigating jockey seat for maritime security, VBSS, boarding teams and military operations on open boats and RHIBs. Typical applications include helm, crew or pax (passenger) seating. Due to its low weight and compact footprint the Shoxs 5005 is particularly suitable for high density layouts, where the maximum number of suspension seats are required in a limited space.
The 250mm (10”) Air Isolator suspension travel is designed for use by high speed craft operating in extreme conditions. The Shoxs 5005 utilizes CNC machined, hard anodized 6061-T6 and 5086 H116 aluminum construction. Components include 316 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel fasteners and Titanium. The metal is clear anodized for a grey finish and the upholstery is a black hand-stitched marine-grade material.
The 5005 is compatible with KINETIX, an advanced seat monitoring and analysis system. The technology allows maritime agencies to lower risk of crew injury or equipment failure by providing both on-board feedback as well as tailored reporting to agencies with any size fleet.
Shoxs seats are constructed with clear hard coat anodized aluminum parts, making the seat frame resistant to environmental factors like corrosion and UV. Slight color variations in the raw aluminum may be visible as a result. We offer black anodizing as an option (subject to minimum quantity requirements and longer lead times.)
