Southampton-based Ocean Safety is to distribute a new range of LED lights from Aquaspec, the makers of the smallest lifejacket light in the world.

AquaSpec has recently extended its product range to include an LED lifejacket, liferaft, lifebuoy and signal lights. Well known for its SOLAS marine safety lights, the new range comprises the AQ8A Lifejacket Light, AQLRL Liferaft Light, AQLBL Lithium Lifebuoy Light, AQLBA Alkaline Lifebuoy Light and AQFLA Morse Signal Torch.

“The extension of the Aquaspec range further complements their unique marine safety light offering,” said Mark Acaster, Ocean Safety’s sales manager. “As the Aquaspec exclusive global distributor we are excited about the opportunity the new products present to the market.”

All products hold the necessary approvals, including MED certification, ISO24408, SOLAS and IMO Res MSC 81(70). They have a five-year shelf-life and share characteristics such as powerful and efficient white LED light, automatic water activation (where relevant) and manual on/off switch.

Smallest in the world

In 1998 AquaSpec launched the AQ98, recognised as the smallest lifejacket light in the world, before releasing the AQ40 range. These lights offer more than 40 hours of continuous operation, five times longer than the eight-hour SOLAS minimum standard, as well as more than 2.5cd of illumination after eight hours of continuous use, three times longer than the 0.75cd SOLAS minimum standard.

This new range complements AquaSpec’s existing AQ40 lifejacket lights, also available from Ocean Safety.
