Compact light weight Solo Liferaft

This liferaft is ideal for helicopter operators due to its compact size and light weight. Most commercial life rafts are large, heavy and unpractical. However the Solo Liferaft can easily be stowed in the cockpit to ensure it is easily accessible by the crew in an emergency.

Design

The valise is manufactured from a fire retardant, highly visible gloss lacquered polyester fabric and has been resistance tested to temperatures exceeding -30 C/+70 C. This tough yet durable material protects the liferaft during both transportation and storage.

The ultra compact design incorporates a quick "grab 'n' go" single handle ensuring fast egress. Simply put; saving time = saving lives!

The operating lanyard is neatly stowed on the side of the valise where it is securely fastened to avoid inadvertent operation. A reflective strip along the length of the lanyard provides an aid for easier location in reducing light. The operating lanyard and snaphook also act as a tethering line to ensure the liferaft once inflated, cannot be accidentally separated from the survivor.

Standards

The single person "Solo" liferaft is designed and manufactured in the UK under the latest ISO 9001 approvals. Its proven design comprises of a gas inflated buoyancy chamber manufactured from lightweight durable fabrics and a single layer canopy fitted with a splash guard. The advanced Dipped Floor seating lowers the centre of gravity resulting in enhanced in-water stability.

The liferaft is inflated using a disposable C02 cylinder which provides low cost maintenance and thus requires no testing or refilling.

Lightweight & compact!

The valise, fully packed and ready to go weighs only 2.8 kg and measures just 25.5 x 19 x 11 (cm). Most commercial packs are large and heavy and when stored in a light aircraft or helicopter (usually in the rear cabin) access is significant compromised during a time critical ditching manoeuvre. The Solo Liferaft is small and light enough to store in the cockpit and located directly with each crew member.
