Lifebuoy Housing: Standard

Our most popular Lifebuoy Housing. Designed to strike the effective balance between making the Lifebuoy  visible and accessible, yet not an open invitation to misuse or vandalism, whilst also giving a pleasing appearance and quality finish which doesn't detract from the visual environment.

Suitable in both commercial and leisure environments, whether salt-water or fresh-water, and available to fit either 24" or 30" LIfebuoys. A wide range of mountings are available.
An optional Front Cover is also available here.

Please note: Lifebuoys , Rescue Lines and Mountings are sold separately.
Alternatively, why not take advantage of our Pre-Packed Sets ....

Key Features

Key Features / Benefits:

  • Superior resistance to corrosion and UV-fading
  • Can neatly accommodate both the Lifebuoy  and an Encapsulated Rescue Line
  • Easy to use: Lifebuoy and Rescue Line are held securely, yet take only a moment to release in an emergency
  • Easily visible, yet doesn't spoil the attractiveness of the surroundings
  • Discourages theft / vandalism *
  • Full range of options for installation (see Options tab)

*Trials by two UK Local Authorities in 2013 demonstrated a major reduction in theft/vandalism by placing lifebuoys in a housing, especially if the housing is fitted with a door/cover (eg our Integrated Housings ) - a clear case of "out-of-sight, out-of-mind".

Options

Installation Options:

Wall/Fence etc Can be screwed or bolted to a wall or fence through the pre-drilled holes in the back of the Housing (fixings not supplied)
Railings Rail-Clamps  (set of 3) are available to enable fixing to most standard-sized railings
Pole-Mounting (Sub-surface) We supply Long Poles  for embedding/cementing into a soft surface (eg canal-bank). The pole slots into the back of the Housing, and is fixed by screwing/bolting to the Housing. Poles are available in either Galvanised Steel or Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP)
Pole-Mounting (Hard-Surface) When the pole is to be mounted to a hard surface eg a wooden jetty, we offer Poles with Base-Plates  for through-bolting. The pole slots into the back of the Housing, and is fixed by screwing/bolting to the Housing. Poles are available in either Galvanised Steel or Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP)

Front cover:  An optional "door" at the front is available by special order.
