The one piece design has the fabric cut from the length of the roll and seams are normally positioned on the outboard side of the collar which is then covered with a rubbing strake and the inboard side. This is the most fashionable style.
The Sectionnal type is found more often on work / commercial boats. The collar is constructed in panels with seam tapes around the circumference of the tube.
This style of tube can be useful for increasing the internal beam. We can manufacture the collar as a fully inflatable type, all foam, or a combination of foam and an air filled inner tube. We are one of the very rare Hypalon manufacturer to be able to do that kind of tube.
The foam/air collar are mainly used on heavy duty large work/commercial Rhibs. There are many techniques used for that kind of collar, the boat designer will choose the technique accordingly with the use of the boat.
