Skin Fittings, Valves & Hose Connectors
We keep a broad selection of through hull skin fittings here at Force 4 Chandlery. Found on all boats as part of some of the necessary holes found on a vessel's hull. We keep skin fittings made of Brass, Bronze, Plastic, DZR (dezincification resistant brass), Composite Skin Fittings and more. They can come with BSP threads or with hose tails.
Fitting a seacock or ball valve to a skin fitting that sits below the waterline is important as it allows you to close it and preventing outside water flowing up into them. We have a good range of ball valves to suit, coming made of the same materials to avoid mixing the metals and causing corrosion.
We also keep a wide range of hose tails and hose connectors to suit either your skin fittings or ball valves allowing you to connect up your necessary pipes. Straight options or 90 degree options are available to suit the space you're working in.
