Integrated Control Environment
SHOCKWAVE ICE (Integrated Control Environment) consoles are the world’s only 3 axis marine shock mitigation seating system. The suspension consoles allow crews to effectively operate controls and electronics while underway at speed. In addition, the ICE provides protection for occupants and sensitive electronics from high speed wave impacts. Our ICE consoles are a culmination of years of research, development and testing of SHOCKWAVE technology.
SHOCKWAVE’s high-end ICE console (with 12” shocks) is best suited to vessels designed for military missions, law enforcement, or SAR applications that require occupant safety while operating at high speeds in extreme sea conditions.
The SHOCKWAVE ICE has fully adjustable FOX Float H20 racing shock absorbers located on each corner and a sway bar to limit roll. AUTOTUNE is a feature that provides the most simple and efficient way of adjusting the suspension on our ICE Consoles automatically. You can adjust the spring rate to any payload with the flick of a switch, offering the ultimate riding experience.
Integrated control environment (ice)
The SHOCKWAVE ICE is revolutionizing safety and marine suspension worldwide. The ICE supports occupants, electronics and other key components of a vessel inside a single shock-absorbing unit, with triple-axis suspension, military-grade material and a patented design. The SHOCKWAVE ICE provides comfort and safety, while mitigating wave impact and allowing users to travel farther and faster.

Testing under real-life conditions
To understand exactly how our products perform, we put them to the test in some of the toughest conditions on earth. In 2010, SHOCKWAVE president David Smith completed an 8000-mile journey using SHOCKWAVE technology. He took an 11-meter open-hull RIB from St. John’s, Newfoundland, over Canada through the Arctic Circle and the Northwest Passage, around Alaska and back home to Victoria, BC.
COMPUTER DESIGN & STRUCTURAL VERIFICATION
While we test and measure our components and seats in related environments, we also use a number of other in-house analytic and testing methods to ensure absolute safety and ultimate performance.
We perform “Drop Testing” in house to verify component strength and suspension performance
We use SolidWorks Simulation software to analyze millions of variables that may cause stress on the components and parts of all our products
All major components are broken down for validation and tested individually
All of our products are
tested on the water
The SHOCKWAVE ICE has multiple international patents on our suspended cockpits, triple-axis suspension and linkage, as well as our sliding and pivoting attachments.

quality of support
SHOCKWAVE ICE units are very technical and custom built for each client, often with considerations for privacy and proprietary information. As such, we provide direct support in person, on the phone or over email as required or requested.
We also have technical and engineering resources available to travel in person to help with installation, training, or other needs as they arise.
Real humans helping real people.
