Ocean Safety, specialist in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hire of marine safety equipment, is launching a new range of Man Overboard (MOB) retrieval equipment at Metstrade, 16-18 November 2021.
Expanding its extensive selection of leisure marine safety equipment, the company’s new MOB range comprises four products designed to make reaching, and subsequent removal of a casualty from the water, easier for crew members left onboard a vessel or for emergency rescue services.
“We pride ourselves on leading the way in safety products for the marine leisure industry,” says Ocean Safety’s managing director, Alistair Hackett. “Our new MOB range, with its innovative selection of casualty recovery equipment, highlights our commitment to providing the boating community with the best safety options available so they can enjoy their time afloat, secure in the knowledge that they are prepared should an incident occur.”
Ocean Safety Throw Line
Ocean Safety’s new Throw Line is designed for use in rescue situations at sea from a vessel, along the shoreline or from the edge of any waterway.
Currently used by the Scottish Police Force and other emergency organisations, the throw line is durable, highly visible and perfectly weighted to allow for increased accuracy in an under or over arm throw, as well as providing a compact storage solution for the 8mm diameter buoyant line.
Available in a 20-metre or 36-metre length, the latter being World Sailing Offshore Racing compliant, the throw line has a breaking load of 700kg, can be supplied with or without a bracket and is designed to allow easy repacking.
Ocean Safety Throwing Recovery Strop
The big brother of the Throw Line, Ocean Safety’s Throwing Recovery Strop is an innovative combination of a throwing line and lifting strop allowing a rescuer to reach and recover a casualty in the water with a single piece of equipment.
The weight of the 36-metre line and padded lifting strop allows for accurate deployment to the casualty.
With a high visibility, durable sock lined soft casing, the throwing recovery strop is easy to repack and can be mounted on a bracket or stored in a cockpit locker.
Ocean Safety MOB Rescue Sling
Designed to make gaining contact with the casualty easier, the Ocean Safety Rescue sling utilises a lifting strop with 36-metres of floating yellow and red line and has a separate webbing strop to attach the line to the vessel.
Easy to deploy with visual instructions printed on the durable soft outer valise, the lifting strop is long enough to go over an inflated lifejacket and has retro reflective tape to improve visibility of the casualty.
The MOB rescue sling’s valise has been designed so that it can be easily fitted to a guard rail and is available in white or high visibility yellow.
Ocean Safety MOB Ladder
Designed for simple self-recovery in a man overboard situation, the Ocean Safety MOB Ladder is easily deployed from the water to allow a MOB to re-board a vessel unaided.
With its weighted and rigid rungs offering increased stability and with a 375kg maximum load, the Ocean Safety MOB Ladder complies with the ISO 15085 standard and can be installed on vessels specified to carry this type of recovery product.
Available in 3-metre or 4-metre ladder lengths, the MOB ladder is fastened to the guard rail of the vessel during operation. It’s easy to repack and while not in use it can be stored discreetly in its stylish and durable white valise.
All products from Ocean Safety’s new MOB product range will be available to view on stand 03.310 at Metstrade.
