“Silver Ships has partnered with SKYDEX to provide extremely rugged, high-quality shock mitigating decking to the Naval Special Warfare Community since 2014. The SKYDEX Boat Decking in our 36' NSW Surface Support Craft has proven to be highly reliable with outstanding UV resistance and non-skid design. It is easy to clean and holds up very well under heavy use. The decking does not budge at highway speeds while trailering or underway at wide-open throttle as some other decking solutions do. The boat operators and dive trainees report a noticeable benefit of reduced impacts to the spine and joints while operating on SKYDEX in all weather conditions. They are also very satisfied with the sharp appearance and custom fitment process and installation attention-to-detail that SKYDEX provides, with customer support second to none.”

Shawn W. Lobree, Federal Contracts Manager, Silver Ships

"The SKYDEX investment in producing high performing quality shock mitigating products is extremely well-respected industry-wide. When we integrate their products into seat cushions and the deck of boats, we enhance the mission capability of our boats and protect the crew. Throughout my 35-year career selling and designing high-speed first responder vessels, I have seen a steady decline in muscular-skeletal injuries inflicted on boat crews that use SKYDEX shock mitigating products. In our industry crew safety must always remain our top priority! SKYDEX products keep boat crews safe and substantially prolong their careers."

John Hotz, Senior Account Manager, Metal Shark

" The effect of standing on SKYDEX is immediately noticeable when operating in waves as it reduces the effects of slamming on the body. What has been surprising is the reduced fatigue after long passages in waves, including cross Channel trips of over 100 miles."

Andre Scott, Director, Parker RIBs

"Besides being great at shock mitigation during rough operation climate I was surprised by how much vibration it reduced when at idle and at slow speeds. I was not even aware of these micro-vibrations impact on my feet, knees, and back until I had to operate another vessel not equipped with a SKYDEX mat.

Officer C.E. Wyble, Metropolitan Police Harbor Patrol

SKYDEX has been the go-to-solution for shock mitigation for 15+ years.
