Marine suspension seating

Shockwave is a Canadian company with a global presence, originally founded in 1965. They design and manufacture marine suspension seats for professional and recreational markets. They are committed to continual improvement, rigorous testing, safety standards and innovative shock module design that protects boaters from the shock of wave impact.

Shockwave started in 2001 with the US Coast Guard as its first customer. Shockwave began designing and building marine suspension seats for militaries around the world and the business evolved into providing seats for commercial applications.

IMP chose to distribute the Shockwave brand as it is known around the world for high performance, strength, and a superior suspension product.

Why Suspension Seating?

Take the boat out for a few hours and ask yourself this: Does my body ache? Am I unusually tired? Am I feeling the need to cut my time on the water short? Or maybe you have a past injury that prevents you from taking the boat out altogether!

The point is, if your seat isn’t designed to take abuse then your body will. Travelling at even moderate speeds without seat suspension can cause cumulative back and neck pain/injuries. Wave shock impact can be unforgiving and over a long enough time period, it can leave you debilitated and unable to take the boat out whatsoever. You deserve to be comfortable, and to enjoy every minute on the water!
