The Spinlock Deckvest is widely credited as being first lifejacket in the leisure sector developed as personal equipment and actually designed to be worn and improve the wearers enjoyment of their sport rather than just an emergency item.
Spinlock have now turned their attentions to the Commercial Marine Sector, introducing their first SOLAS approved lifejacket. Deckvest SOLAS 275N is a commercial marine version of Spinlock’s award-winning Deckvest lifejacket. Featuring many of the performance, comfort and fit benefits associated with the Deckvest, it now also features a twin chamber 275N SOLAS bladder, protected inside an enhanced rugged, but flexible cover and meets the latest 2010 SOLAS MSC200(80) standard. An integral sprayhood and high intensity Pylon™ light can be also be added.
Designed for daily use by marine professionals in a wide range of fast changing conditions, the Deckvest SOLAS 275N provides fully specified personal flotation with all the benefits of Spinlock’s intensive lifejacket development and ocean testing. Commenting on the new Deckvest SOLAS 275N, Spinlock Deckware Manager Myles Uren comments: “Until now, SOLAS lifejackets have not been designed for continuous or comfortable wear. This means that despite marine professionals spending long hours in their lifejackets, their lifejackets are typically heavier, more cumbersome and unnecessarily tiring to wear. We have challenged this convention with the new Deckvest SOLAS, the design reduces the impact on the user so they can stay alert and safe while at work, it has also been specifically shaped to work effectively with a full body fall arrest harness.
The new Deckvest SOLAS 275N has been developed in response to increasing professional demand from across the whole spectrum of the commercial sector, with more and more sectors of industry now requiring their staff to wear lifejackets or have lifejackets available for their PPE regulations and assessments.
