Buoyant Apparatus

The Salters Steamers Ltd Buoyant Apparatus are approved by the British Department of Trade for use on all classes of vessels where this type of safety equipment is specified. They can be used on home trade and foreign ships, including passenger craft, ferries, fishing vessels, trawlers, tugs and pleasure boats.

Only the best quality materials are used in the manufacture of these apparatus with each unit conveniently moulded to stack in tiers on the boat deck, ready for immediate use. A strong grabline is fastened completely around the units, and a point is provided for the attachment of a painter at one end (of an approved length in accordance with the statutory requirements). The glass fibre casing of the apparatus is foam filled and is extremely strong and durable, needing the minimum of maintenance.
