RIB Collars For Sale
RIB Collars are the inflatable collars which are attached to the hull of a rigid-hull inflatable boat (RIB).
They have evolved from the early days of inflatables, into complex and technical inflatable structures
using high tech Hypalon fabric with very durable characteristics. RIB Collars can be made in wide range of colours
and styles utilising a variety of construction techniques suited to the particular boat type.
TIDEL can manufacture to suit any hull design from small to large using Curved RIB Collars, Sectional RIB Collars,
D Section RIB Collars or Foam Filled RIB collars.
RIB Collars are also somtimes referred to as RIB Sponsons which are the generic term for an outer extension to a boat at or below the waterline.
In the case of a RIB the word sponson either means additional buoyancy and thus stability against capsize, or to add hydrodynamic forces
to resist capsize. A RIB Collar / Sponson can often be easily attached to an existing craft to improve its stability.
