SB Rescue Sling

For recovering a casualty without the rescuer having to enter the water, from a boat or a steep-sided canal/lake or where there is a large vertical-distance recovery. It can be operated by one person, has an effective reach of up to 4.5 metres, and yet weighs only 3 Kg.

Without this equipment, a casualty could be lost due to the freeboard, crew fatigue or the lack of crew numbers. The SB Rescue Sling is approved for military use (NATO stock-listed) and is widely-used on pilot boats, workboats, small passenger craft and rescue vessels - we have already supplied more than 500 units to vessels around the UK, in other parts of Europe, and as far afield as Australia.

NB Intended for rescuing uninjured personnel only.

A PVC cover is also available here.

[In the event of loss or damage to part of the sling, spare/replacement parts are available - please email us or phone +44 (0) 1202 657814 for details].

(Can also be used with the SB Rescue Davit).
