About Hovercraft Skirts
Checkmate Flexible Engineering is, arguably, the world’s leading manufacturer of air cushion vehicle skirt components, including parts for hovercraft and surface effect ships. We design our skirts and seals on an individual basis, providing a tailored product that meets the specific requirements of each project.
We are aware that commercial operators require minimum costs and downtime in order to ensure profitability, and our refined manufacturing methods offer the most economically viable option for the running of Air Cushion Craft.
With our extensive experience we can provide the most effective customised service. Backed by a long history of laboratory development and ‘on-craft’ experience, we can match compounds and materials to accommodate specific needs for varying degrees of ozone and oil contamination, abrasion and flagellation that may be encountered during use.
The company’s BS EN 9001 2015 quality assurance system is registered with SGS, a UKAS approved company.
