A range of Class 3 seating is designed to offer high levels of protection and comfort for crew and passengers where the vessel is used in demanding speed and sea state conditions. KPM Class 3 seats are fully crash tested and are type approved to HSC Code Annex 10 with DNV.

In the process of designing the 12G seating system, for crews and personnel that are exposed to open sea transits on a daily basis, KPM Marine developed a series of high specification components that are available as separate items. The KPM Unitrack System provides a structural mounting system for seats. The KPM 12G Slider and Pivot were developed to meet regulations of the HSC Code. KPM Marine also manufacture shock mitigation mechanisms for Scot Seat jockey seats that are used on professional and military RIBs and high speed craft.

New products designed specifically to end-user requirements include the Intelli-Fender which monitors the pressure a windfarm support vessel makes on the wind turbine post. DeckSafe is a system for safe manoeuvring of goods on the deck, even in adverse conditions. KPM Marine 2 CUBED Modular Interiors are a pre-designed, lightweight system that enables below deck spaces to be constructed quickly on workboats and professional fast craft. Modular units include workstations, storage, heads, showers, galley and bunks.

Technical Director - Jules Morgan

"KPM design and manufacture in house so we can turn our hand to a variety of engineering. Build quality, reliability and finish are of the highest standard. Our marine systems can be COTS, commercial off the shelf, or built to suit customers individual requirements. We already work alongside many Naval Architects from the very beginning of projects and offer guidance on what is possible as ideas unfold during the build."

"The design team at KPM use Solidworks CAD and has broad experience developed over many years. We aim to have early involvement in projects and offer design assistance to make sure that the correct product is specified, saving time and meeting budgets. The team are able to listen to what the customer requires then develop products to meet these needs. All aspects of KPM design are based on scientific research and application."

Research & Development

"KPM are working on co-operative development. Research is already being done with organisations such as Coventry University, UK and the Royal Institute of Naval Architects. We also work with other companies on joint ventures. KPM continuously strive to be at the leading edge in research, design, safety and all the latest legislation connected with the marine industry. Safety and comfort are top priorities for our seating products."

"We have recognised that as competition increases vessel build costs need to fall. Multiple vessels being built allows standardisation and the cost of build can be reduced at design stage rather than during the build, which creates delays and unforeseen cost. KPM Marine have developed a modular boat interior system that can be installed alongside our seating. This gives boat builders a system that can be easily re-configured to suit the end user."
