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!).
  • Standard Housing: 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. (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 4 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)
