Product Description

The Leafield Marine D7 drop stitch valve is specifically designed for use with high pressure drop stitch fabric. It is ideal for use in paddle boards, rescue platforms and water park equipment. It is also used in demanding Commercial and Military applications such as boats and combat craft.

The internal mesh filter is designed to stop drop stitch threads and debris from entering the valve seal and causing leaks.

The seal has been designed to operate reliably at the high pressures required with drop stitch.

It has the same clamping method, and ‘O’ ring seal added to the valve core, to reduce the risk of lateral leaks in the fabric as the standard D7.

Acetal (POM) plastic parts give high strength with chemical, ozone and shock resistance.

When the cap is fitted the strong retaining strap is hidden from view to prevent it snagging on other equipment. Cap replacement is simple – the valve does not need to be removed.

The D7 core is available in grey or black and the caps are available in grey, black, white or yellow. Your company brand or logo can be added to the valve cap, subject to a minimum quantity and tooling charge.
