Key Features

Key Features / Benefits:

  • Designed for use in both commercial and leisure environments, whether salt-water or fresh-water
  • Available in two sizes: 24" or 30" orange Lifebuoy
  • Lifebuoy: strong, reliable and durable orange Lifebuoy, fitted with synthetic-rope grablines and Retro-reflective Tape on both sides (to aid visibility in low light). Complies with the European Marine Equipment Directive (MED compliant)
  • Rescue Line: enables easy retrieval of the Lifebuoy and increases the chances of a successful rescue. The Rescuer simply holds the thin end of the "milk-bottle"-shape in one hand, and throws the Lifebuoy with the other. Fits neatly within the Lifebuoy, and the buoyant line runs without kinks (no more windswept/tangled lines; also discourages tampering by little fingers!).
  • Integrated Housing: Artistically-styled to enhance any waterside or marina environment, and designed in consultation with the RNLI. The easy-access door enables fast deployment of the Lifebuoy and Rescue Line, and is both highly visible and yet unobtrusive. Twin legs give a quality ambience, and offer the option of mounting specific signage eg your logo, a safety message, sponsorship or advertising. Discourages theft / vandalism (trials by two UK Local Authorities in 2013 demonstrated a major reduction in theft/vandalism by placing lifebuoys in a housing).
  • Mountings for the Housing: select from four options to suit your particular situation:
    (A) mounting to a wall, fence etc
    (B) onto railings
    (C) pole-mounted into a soft surface (eg canal-bank)
    (D) pole-mounted onto a hard surface (eg wooden jetty)


Optional Signage:

Signs can be fixed to the support legs of the Housing using clamps. We can provide signs manufactured to your specifications, or blanks for you to add your own messages, or we can provide just the clamps for securing your own sign. The signboards are available in a range of sizes/materials - the most popular is in white aluminium 750 x 300 mm.
