Construction:

Fabric

Buoyancy - New high tenacity nylon coated PU in a sandwich construction, providing a greater wear resistance and a longer service life. - Highly visible yellow buoyancy for maximum visual impact.

Canopy - PU coated nylon for a longer life.

Construction

Buoyancy - Tubular construction ensuring only 2 internal seams are used, significantly reducing abrasive damage during use. - New inflation system tested to SOLAS standard.

Floor - Fully bonded floor allowing repairs during use whilst maintaining full insulation.

Cellular foam floor with aluminium coating

A particularly innovative sandwich design incorporates a cellular foam layer between a fabric base and aluminium film top layer. The layer of aluminium film reflects back natural body heat providing protection and insulation from the cold of the water. This system offers superior insulation, lighter weight and needs no inflation system to work compared to an old-fashioned inflatable floor which may be easily punctured.

Storage

Valise or canister?

Ocean Safety liferafts are available in either a valise or a canister. When possible, a canister is recommended to offer the best protection against wear and tear and the elements. A canister can be left on deck or mounted in the stern of a sailing yacht. A liferaft in a valise should be protected from the elements and care should be taken to keep it clear from sharp objects. It will need to be stowed in a location that permits it to be brought on deck quickly and easily.
