With our FAST collar systems, we set out to revolutionize the RIB industry with the safest platform in the world. IMS has developed and patented the technologies that go into our FAST collars, and each one is built using the latest technology.
We have the ability to make collars that are 100% air, 100% foam, or a foam/air hybrid system. Mated with our patented collar attachment and installation systems, installation, removal, or repair of the collar will be smooth and easy.
To provide you with the best products we can, we have invested in the best manufacturing equipment available and have a design team that pioneered foam stabilized watercraft over the past 30 years.
Air/ Foam Hybrid Collars (Patent Pending) : One of the new patent pending technologies we are pioneering is a new collar design that leans on the benefits of both foam collars and air collars. With our air/ foam hybrid system, we can adjust any desirable ratio of air to foam inside of the collar system. The benefits of having the air/ foam hybrid collar are that they are softer to the user, easier to replace, and easier to ship. With foam collars you have the redundancy of flotation even in the event the air bladder is ruptured. With this technology you have the benefits of both systems.
FAST Closed Cell Foam Buoyancy Stabilizers: The FAST collar system provides superior buoyancy, unparalleled stability and maximum collision protection in a cutting edge, heavy duty package that allows your boat to operate in the toughest conditions of its class. Manufactured with industry leading equipment and techniques, polyurethane covered foam collars provide a light weight, stable, and seaworthy ride. Used in conjunction with our collar systems our decks are water tight and self bailing which allow them to quickly evacuate any water that may enter the boat. Under the self bailing decks is additional polyethylene foam to achieve maximum flotation and to provide sound deadening for a quieter ride.
COLLAR RETROFIT AND REPLACEMENT
With our modern facility and engineering team we are able to work with you on a retrofit collar application for your boat. We can produce 100% air collars, 100% Foam Collars, and a hybrid combination of air and foam.
