Line Launcher to be marketed in the UK
IC Brindle & Co has signed an agreement to distribute Kiwi Rescue’s Line Launcher - a high-vis 80m safety line and flotation pod.
The product uses a 16g CO2 replaceable cartridge and is designed for ease of operation in extreme weather conditions and where making a line connection between two parties is required, including ship to ship transfer, ship to shore, man overboard and ocean lifesaving. It also has many land-based uses including crossing gaps, rivers, floods and construction.
“This is a unique and refreshing new product on the market – a clever product that is almost entirely reusable with easily replaceable CO2 cartridges. It fills a real niche in the market,” said Ian Brindle of IC Brindle.
The line is made from floating 2.5mm polypropylene. It has a breaking strain of 80kg and can be used as a pilot to attach to a stronger line when more strength is required or replaced with a stronger line.
The Line Launcher was initially designed by a rescue hovercraft operator and following concept trials project development was continued by Kiwi Rescue headed by New Zealander Gerald Davies who with his business partner Bruce Holt have brought the product to market.
