Ocean Safety has launched a new range option for its Jon Buoy man overboard collection, the Jon Buoy Glo Lite.

Glo Lite uses retro-reflective technology that enhances the visibility of the hi-vis fabric, making it highly reflective and increasing perception during dark conditions.

The new range is available as an addition to the current standard Jon Buoy range.

The company has also developed a new container for its Ocean ISO Liferaft, reducing weight and making the raft easier to handle.

The company has seen an increase in both cruisers and racers carrying liferafts with more owners investing in safety products.

“Leisure end user awareness has really increased, with a greater understanding of the importance of having a raft,” said Alistair Hackett, Ocean Safety MD.

Industry expertise

The container design evolution is developed from customer feedback, industry expertise and research and incorporates built-in handles.

The removal of a rubber gasket featured in the original version has further reduced weight.

The new design has the same footprint as its predecessor but with a lower profile.

Ocean Safety’s Ocean ISO liferaft is designed and tested in the UK to the ISO 9650 standard.

The liferaft has a knee scoop and boarding ladder for easy boarding, plus a range of other survival features that include, SOLAS approved lighting system, rain water collection and the option of three survival equipment packs.

The Ocean ISO liferaft is also available in a valise option as well as in a carbon Ultralite version.
