Marine vessel personal escape device
Marine vessels have special needs, including the requirements to achieve effective evacuation escape and rescue in a variety of scenarios. In particular, the following issues must be addressed:
- Listing – causing conventionally mounted lifeboats to become inoperative
- Smoke – affecting helicopter operations
- Entrapment – at the bow end for entry into liferafts and the bridge wings or in the event of the main means of escape being rendered inoperative
The Donut Safeland Marine personal escape control descent device is extremely effective in all these scenarios.
