MORE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

„In future

only those products, technologies and processes will be successful,

which efficiently deal with natural resources that become increasingly scarce“.

ROW MATERIAL GROW ON RUBBER TREES

The raw materials of a GRABNER inflatable boat continuously "grow" on rubber trees, and secures jobs and income for people in third world countries.

humane manufacture

Waste and off-gas emissions from manufacturing processes are utilised for generating heating processes.

eco-friendly use

Being easy to transport, no permanent mooring is needed, thus protecting waterside banks from man made obstructions.

Thanks to low weight, less energy is required for greater performance.

Transport inside the car in comparison to roof rack carrying or towing saves 30% approximately on fuel.

LIFESPAN

Its hard to believe, but true:

Even after 20 years of wear and tear under toughest conditions, with scratches to show, GRABNER inflatable boats still remain in good and serviceable order!

The lifespan depends greatly on how a boat is used, handled and cared for. It is longer than you might expect if you comply with the recommendations in the user's instructions.

RECYCLING

The eco-friendly rubber material can easily be disposed of at the waste tip, or be recycled for conversion into heat at a respective generating plant.
That should recover 95% of the prime energy.

MORE VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY

Whilst a high quality GRABNER inflatable can look forward to provide may years of pleasure, the fun from the purchase of a cheap inflatable soon vanishes, e.g. minor damages, which require frequent repairs (if at all repairable), the bursting of corrugated air-chambers, and soon noticeable porosity, or general loss of air etc.

A long life GRABNER quality inflatable is far more beneficial than several seasonal throw-away-products, which may in the end prove rather on the expensive side, because of their PVC constituent, which is hazardour and costly to dispose of.
