REPLACEMENT TUBES

REPLACEMENT TUBES

MILPRO™ tubes are custom-made in order to meet a specific requirement, whatever the boat quantity. For a single project or an existing fleet maintenance, tubes are specially developped from rigging and use requirement. MILPRO™ tubes are fully customisable : foam, chambers, inflation system, fabric, …

ROUND SHAPE TUBE

This Milpro classic tube is round shape with conical or rounded ends.

It offers maximum buoyancyall, shock damping all around and allow passenger to seat on the collar. With this configuration you’ll get a standard deck space.

Chosen for:

  • Boarding operations

  • Passenger transport with simple deck configuration

GET INFORMATION
INFLATABLE TUBE 
DescriptionCompartmented fabric inflatable collar with Intercommunication valves
Advantages
  • Deflatable for transport
  • Easily repairable
  • Light – Foldable
  • Compartmented
  • Resistant to abrasion
  • Inflatable from one single point with IC valves
Compromised Characteristics
Can be punctured if the exterior fabric layer is compromised 
Chosen for
  • Light weight
  • Easy to repair

D-SHAPE TUBE

This Milpro™ D-Shape tube is a Half section collar with rounded ends (shorter than conical ends).

It offers maximum Deck Space while preserving the same outer buoyancy volume.

  • Boarding operations

  • Passenger transport with simple deck configuration

GET INFORMATION
FULL FOAM INFLATED
Description
Fabric inflated collar fitted by closed-cell foam and inflated by inflation valve.
AdvantagesResistant to abrasion

Puncturable but keeps the shape and full buoyancy if punctured

Compromised characteristics
  • Can be punctured and loses tension if the exterior fabric layer is compromised (keep the shape and buoyancy anyway)
  • One or two compartments only
  • Heavier
  • More difficult  to repair
Chosen for
  • Working boats with extreme rugging exposure.
  • Military applications (ballistic exposed mission)

HYBRID TUBE

This Milpro™ Hybrid tube is round shape at the bow and D-shape at the aft and middle section.

It offers a compromise between maximized deck space at the back and good buoyancy and shock damping at the bow. It also has good propreties for boarding and avoid diving into waves.

  • For multi-mission boat (Boarding operations,Working boat etc.)

GET INFORMATION
DURARIB
Description
Inflated fabric inner bladders (port and starboard) with inflation valves, rounded by closed-cell foam and exterior fabric layer.
AdvantagesResistant to extrem abrasion
Unpuncturable : stays inflated with tension as long as the inner bladder is not compromized by bullet puncture & keeps the shape and full buoyancy
if punctured.
Compromised Characteristics
  • Heavier
  • More difficult to repair
  • No IC valves but two inner bladder (port & startboard)
Chosen for
  • Military applications (ballistic exposed mission).
  • Extreme rugging exposure (boarding).
BOW FOAM INFLATED
Description
Fabric inflated collar, compartmented, and intercommunication valves.
Filled by closed-cell foam in the bow area only.
AdvantagesGood compromise in weight, foldability, and resistance.

Puncturable but:

  • compartmented
  • Keep the shape and full buoyancy at the bow if punctured.
Compromised characteristics
  • Can be punctured and loses tension if the exterior fabric layer is compromised (keep the shape and buoyancy anyway)
  • One or two compartments only
  • Heavier
  • More difficult  to repair in the bow area
Chosen for
  • Boarding operations
  • Working boat with extreme rugging exposure at the bow
