Zodiac Milpro Intellectual Property
Over the years, Zodiac Milpro has registered numerous patents, trademarks, trade dress and copyrights, leading the world in innovation for inflatable marine applications.
Key innovations include:
- Composite Buoyancy Collars : By combining the unique advantages of inflation and foam, the collars enhance their resistance to punctures.
- Foam-buoyancy Collars : provide excellent durability with special reinforcement and surface coatings and allow various shapes.
The DuraRib™ foam collar is a patented system which upgrades an inflatable collar to a foam filled collar. The DuraRib™ collar retains 100% of its form and function even if punctured due to its outer polyurethane skin supported by layers of closed cell foam.
- Wrap-around Collars : For stern launched and recovered boats, collar design extending along entire peripheries of the boats provide extra buoyancy, making launching and recovery maneuver safer in rough seas.
- Automatic inflation systems for collars : for rapid inflation, topping-off pressure and rapid deflation of the inflatable compartments.
- Diver Accessibility : Collar integrated dive doors with tube elements that may be removed aids divers operations without sacrificing boat buoyancy when a diver needs to pass into or out of a boat. Unlike other systems, as integrated into collar, these innovations do not require additional equipment or stabilizers and allow for easy and quick repair and replacement of the tubes.
- DiverDoor™ and Rapid Access Door are patented systems of removable sections of collars for greater access to the water for divers, personnel recovery or marine mammals.
- Lifting pads : With a flush deck design, lifting eye folds flush when not in use, providing an attractive, unobtrusive structure.
- Shock Mitigation Flooring : Zodiac Milpro is an exclusive user of SKYDEX shock mitigating flooring systems.
- SMS™ (Shock Mitigation Systems – 2 types of seating) : Even though a Zodiac Milpro RIB is inherently shock mitigating due to its hull and collar design, Zodiac offers a variety of SMS solutions including two types of integrated seats and console suspended systems.
