Ocean Safety extends its Jon Buoy MOB Recovery range

Ocean Safety has extended its industry leading Jon Buoy Man Overboard (MOB) Recovery range with the addition of a soft case option for its Jon Buoy Inflatable Rescue Sling and its Jon Buoy Inflatable Horseshoe.

Utilising the latest technology and meeting the needs of the market, the marine safety equipment specialist has developed a more compact, durable storage option, with a modern aesthetic, for its innovative lifesaving product range.

The new soft case gives the Jon Buoy Inflatable Rescue Sling and Inflatable Horseshoe more stowage options onboard and easier to deploy when required.

Enhanced internal protection provided by the new soft cases has also increased the service interval to two years for the soft case Jon Buoy Inflatable Rescue Sling and Inflatable Horseshoe, as opposed to the one-year service interval afforded by hard case option.

Offering flexibility when it comes to positioning, the new soft case option comes with a hook & loop universal mounting system, enabling this vital safety equipment to be mounted anywhere, from bulkhead to guard rail, or on a land-based fixture.

The Jon Buoy range incorporates the cutting-edge retro-reflective Glo Lite technology that significantly enhances the visibility of the hi-vis fabric of the inflatable rescue sling and horseshoe making them highly reflective, increasing perception during dark conditions, aiding casualty location which, in turn, leads to reduced time before recovery.

The Jon Buoy inflatable horseshoe is a direct replacement for the traditional horseshoe lifebuoys. Available in single or double versions, the compact units come fitted with an automatic inflation system as standard, as well as an oral inflation tube and a whistle.

The Jon Buoy inflatable rescue sling is specifically designed for the quick and easy recovery of a casualty in the water, with the sling automatically inflating when it comes into contact with the water.

“Through ongoing research and customer feedback, our products are constantly evolving to ensure we are meeting the exacting requirements of the market,” says Ocean Safety’s managing director, Alistair Hackett. “The new soft case for our Jon Buoy Inflatable Rescue Sling and Inflatable Horseshoe is a prime example of this, ensuring the product is easier to stow and use, and making it more versatile for use across a wider range of user groups – both on the water and along the water’s edge.”

All products from Ocean Safety’s Jon Buoy product range will be available to view on stand 03.310 at Metstrade. To arrange an appointment to discuss the new range at the show, please contact Amy Grealish on
