New life preserver repackable

ADVERTISEMENT

Fort Lauderdale-based ThrowRaft has received U.S. Coast Guard approval for its throwable Type IV personal flotation device that inflates when submerged in water. The square PFD is reusable and, when packed, takes a fraction of storage space onboard.

It passed more than 30 USCG tests, including puncture resistance, water spray so it does not inflate unintentionally, a rearm and repack test, and a drop test to ensure it auto inflates after being dropped in water from a height of 110 feet.

For more information, email info@throwraft.com or call 1-800-565-6056.
