Gas Inlet Valve (GIV Type)

  • Wide range of jet sizes available to allow flow to be matched to the size of the structures being inflated.
  • Designed to minimise ice formation in the system when used with the GIS Cylinder Valve.
  • Incorporates a non-return valve to prevent potential loss of pressure from the structure after inflation.
  • Rugged design.
  • Rapid fitting to a wide range of fabrics.

Product Description

The Inlet Valves clamp into the fabric of the inflatable structure and allow efficient and controlled transfer of high-pressure gas through hoses from the Cylinder Valve into the structure.

Leafield Marine are very happy to assist in the selection of appropriate jet sizes for your applications.

Several different arrangements of Gas Inlet Valve have been developed to cover a wide range of applications. See Accessories and Variants below.
