The Dockside / Open Water Safety set is perfect for use around open bodies of water where there is a drop from land (such as docks, pontoons or sea walls).
The lifebuoy is a large life ring (30”), suitable for floating in deep, choppy water. It is Ship’s Wheel stamped, and features SOLAS Reflective tape for improved visibility when conditions are poor. The ring contains PU Foam to hinder water intake. This gives the buoy a great ratio of weight to buoyancy.
We also include an encapsulated throw line with a plastic handle for easy grip. The throw line is a fluorescent orange floating rope which is 30m long (6mm diameter), ensuring a decent coverage from land to water.
The lifebuoy housing cabinet is robust for outdoor conditions, protecting the life ring and the encapsulated throw line from natural weathering. The cabinet is a single unit, moulded from HDPE Plastic and is ideal for long-term use. The cabinet can be attached to either a galvanised mounting pole (we offer a 2.5m below-ground or 1.5 metre above-ground option) or an existing guardrail, using suitable U-Bolts with nuts and bolts also supplied.
We recommend including a cabinet cover in your order to deter vandals and protect the lifebuoy and throw line from the elements, but this is optional. This cover detaches quickly and easily any time access is required.
If you’re seeking water safety equipment better suited for smaller bodies of water, you should check out our lakeside water safety set, which is more lightweight and suitable for throwing from the waterline.
