Which (mainstream not commercial) ribs have the thickest?

Our old searider seemed to have much thicker wear resistant (colour loss) than our Humber.

What is standard? How thick is it?

Mr Smith is yellow, which is the VERY WORST colour for fading in Hypalon.

Paul Tiley has a nice info page on Hypalon grades here.

Grey and Black are pretty good for colour retention...

...you should have parked the RIB beside the fireplace
