SeaRaft platforms are made from HEYtex® double-wall fabric (DWF) the world’s leading manufacturer of technical textiles and is produced in an elaborate weaving process with a defined amount of distance threads (28.000/m2). In comparison to knitted products, this leads to a much stiffer, lighter material with better dimensional stability.
We are partnered with HEYtex Germany, to manufacture the most superior quality platforms on the market worldwide and we continue to run intensive laboratory testing, focusing on product quality, performance, and safety.
The Platforms side walls are made from HEYtex boat fabric ‘HEYboats’, a PVC specially developed for the boat building industry. HEYboats is extremely airtight material, durable with excellent UV and weather resistance. The side walls are attached to the DWF by our special construction techniques using a high-tech gluing process.
Our Original Teak Deck anti-skid gives a traditional and elegant teak effect. Because it is flexible material, our platforms can be folded as well as rolled for compact storage. This is a significant advantage when stowage space is always at a premium.
The surface profile of this material achieves its high non-skid quality. Resistant to salt water and UV-light it’s a long-lasting and hardwearing platform surface.
Water Ballast Bags fill up quickly with water to provide stability to the platform instantly. When not in use you can empty the bags rapidly by pulling the Ballast Bag Loops which tie away easily to the side wall.
Each SeaRaft platform is equipped with strategically positioned strong Soft Grip Carry-Handles to ensure comfortable installation or repositioning any time in their inflated state.
Protect your yacht, platform, jet ski or tender with the Rubbing Protection Strake. Mounted in a single or double layer on the rafts side walls, the heavy duty Rubbing Strake ensures a prolonged use and protects against chafing and abrasion.
The patented Air Connection System, allows the inflatable platforms to be linked in multiple configurations. With a seamless connection, you will have peace of mind when you move between linked platforms.
Air Bumbers are an optional patented solution using DWF in our unique curved construction making a strong and secure ‘fender’ like product which prevents rafts from drifting under the swim platform.
The materials are tested and approved according to the strict European safety and health regulations. All components used are compliant with the European Community regulation on Chemicals – REACh no. 1907/2006 (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals).
Our own factory is based in Europe and we comply to the strict European quality and safety norms that apply for every EU manufacturer. Our factory holds the Quality Management System ISO 9001 certificate and follows the European environmental rules with a strong focus on smart design, recycling and re-use of our materials.
“We have two SeaRaft Platforms, one 12m we had custom-designed for our yacht ‘Insatiable’ for jet and tender docking and a small 4m one for sunbathing and maintenance. I don’t know what we would do without the extra space for sunbathing, swimming, paddle boarding and all our water toys, not to mention the safety of docking tenders, jet skis and the safety of visitor arrivals/departures. SeaRaft provides an invaluable safe extension we use every day.”
