OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

The Flat Valve Technology (pat.pend) has 3 main advantages over conventional seam edge welded valves:
1. Being welded flat into the fabric and not protruding on the edge makes the valves less susceptible to abrasion and wear of the face fabric.
2. The Inflation valve has a one-way flap and a round lip shaped form for quick and simple inflation. The flap prevents air from escaping the mat, especially convenient prior to closing the valve cap.
3. The Deflation valve also features a one-way flap preventing air from re-inflating the mat when the mat is being rolled up for packaging.
