TruDesign Recessed Skin Fittings (Thru Hulls)
- Designed and made in New Zealand, the Skin Fitting body and nut are moulded from a glass-reinforced nylon composite.
- High strength, high-modulus glass fibres provide dramatic strength, stiffness, toughness and dimensional stability.
- These properties allow a significant weight reduction over metallic fittings.
- TruDesign Skin Fittings eliminate the corrosion and electrical bonding problems associated with metallic fittings.
TruDesign Skin Fittings are certified by the International Marine Certification Institute (IMCI) & Burea Veritas to meet; ISO 9093-2 Small craft — Seacocks and through-hull fittings — Part 2: Non-metallic.
They also comply with ABYC H-27 when used in conjunction with the TruDesign ABYC collar.
- When used in below waterline applications, a Ball Valve should be directly connected for safety and compliance to relevant marine standards.
- An Application Tool is available to allow the skin fitting to be installed by one person.
- Please download the Data Sheet for dimensions, features and installation instructions.
- Suitable Adhesive/Sealant for bonding the skin fittings can be found here.
- See the Mould Plugs for use with these Skin Fittings. Ideal for production boat builders.
