Life Cell Marine Safety’s buoyancy device, Life Cell, has achieved SOLAS certification, meaning that it can now be used onboard ships bound by the Convention.

Scott Smiles, one of the inventors of  Life Cell and now a director of Life Cell Marine Safety, developed the device after a real-life accident at sea.

He said: “My experience made me realise how quickly things can go wrong and how critical it was to have a buoyant device, signalling equipment and an effective way of keeping everyone together once you are in the water. This certification will allow Life Cell to be used more widely on vessels internationally.”

Life Cell is classified as a Throwable Buoyancy Device and has the capacity to support one to four people depending on the model. It is suitable for installation up to a height of 30 metres above the water-line.

In addition to buoyancy, the added advantage of the Life Cell buoyancy device is that it can be used to store all essential safety equipment needed to notify the rescue authorities.

The Life Cell Product range will be exhibited at the London Boat Show by ADEC on stand A061, Jimmy Green Marine on stand B039, Marine Super Store on stand A026 and TCS Chandlery on stand B051.

UK Life Cell Agent, Pinpoint, will also be exhibiting the product range at the 2017 Seawork International exhibition in Southampton from 13 to 15 June on stand SB079.
