Details of materials currently used in the manufacture of NERIS
frame members - Alu & Valkure Series kayaks
The stringer set is made of an anodized duralumin tube D16T
(DIN 2024), manufactured by “ALCOA” – a
leader in aluminum alloys. This robust type of alloy grade
is typically used in aircraft.
bar - all kayaks
The keel bar is made of a profiled oval tube, 20 x 35mm. This
tube ensures enhanced stiffness against vertical bending.
due to the high profile of the tube (35mm), this ensures that
there is sufficient gap between the kayak skin and the cross
and other key frame members - to avoid potential damage to
the skin when hitting underwater objects.
||Washboard - Alu & Valkure Series kayaks
The washboard coaming is specially manufactured with a unique
profile designed by NERIS. This design is based on sailing
mast tracks and is used to grip the PVC deck securely to
the washboard. The washboard is easy to install, and also
provides structural strength and rigidity to the kayak
ribs - all kayaks
NERIS uses two different types of cross ribs:-
- Alu Series kayak cross ribs are made
of duralumin tube D16T, diameter 18mm, with stainless
steel stringer supports.
- Smart Series cross ribs
of duralumin tube D16T, diameter 18mm
- Valkure Series kayak cross ribs are made
of 11 layer laminated moisture proof birch plywood
typically used in the yacht-building industry. The cross
ribs are treated with
a special impregnation 1st coat, and then is coated with
three layers of marine varnish made by Tikkurila (Sweden).
The aesthetic look and natural warmth of wood are the key
features of NERIS kayaks.
Since the spring of 2008, all NERIS kayaks are fitted with
inflatable seats "Airseat".
These seats have been highly regarded by our clients. The
seats feature straps on the underside for reliable and secure
attachment to the keel bar of the kayak, and also has
side straps with provision for back rest
tilt adjustments. Additionally,
seats double up as buoyancy 'tanks' ensuring unsinkability
of the kayak.
