CCS Approved Inflatable Life Raft For Ship
Inflatable life rafts are further divided into inflatable life rafts, inflatable lifesaving buoys, and inflatable self-supporting life rafts.
1. inflatable life raft
These life rafts provide buoyancy from upper and lower floating tires made of rubber material, made of double-layer waterproof nylon cloth, and inflated with gas into circular, oval or polygonal tents with awnings. After the liferaft body is folded up, it is stored in the FRP storage cylinder together with the attachment. The inflatable life raft is widely used in various civil and military vessels at sea because of its advanced design, compact structure, good safety, convenient movement, simple operation and rapid forming.
There are two types of inflatable liferafts, mechanically suspended and thrown. The mechanical hanging type raft has been inflated before entering the water; the throwing life raft is inflated on the sea surface, and the life raft may be overturned during the inflation forming process, so that the artificial water supply is required to be used for the personnel to board. .
2. Inflatable rescue float
In addition to the awning, the inflatable life-saving floats have the same manufacturing materials, main structure, performance requirements, forming process, storage requirements, and attachments, all of which are the same as the inflatable life rafts, but the casting method is only throwing type. . Its characteristics are:
(1) There is no canopy.inflate fter the water surface is inflated and formed, the water personnel can take the two boarding platforms symmetrically set on both sides of the floating device or any one side to board the floating device, and the boarding is convenient and fast.
(2) The rated occupant has more inflatable life rafts than the tent, and can carry up to 50 people.
(3) The double bottom of the rescue buoy is placed between the upper and lower floating tires. Therefore, no matter what sea conditions are applied, the floating device is in a positive floating state after being inflated and formed on the sea surface (both sides are available), and no artificial righting is required.
(4) Because there is no canopy for such life-saving buoys, the personnel are greatly affected by sea conditions and climate, and are mainly equipped on passenger ships.
3. Inflatable self-supporting life raft
In order to overcome the overturning situation that the inflatable life raft can form during the sea surface forming process, to avoid the difficulty of people getting in and out of the water to meet the needs of the sea-based survival personnel for safety and rapid response, some manufacturers have developed inflatable self-supporting life rafts. Such a life raft is once overturned on the sea surface during the application process. Since the top of the raft is rounded, the contact surface with the water can be reduced. The weight of the corpus callosum and the attachments is such that the center of gravity is at the bottom of the life raft. After inflation molding, you can self-righteously
