Speed and consistency are key in scenarios such as these. As a result, our valves go through strict testing to make sure they are up to the task.


3. Self-Righting Systems

Self-righting systems are known as a lifesaving progression in sea safety. Therefore, they are often seen on commercial vessels and SOLAS type Rescue Boats. They are an advised feature on any boat at risk of capsizing. If a boat is turned upside down, the system inflates to flip it the right way again. We offer systems that instantly deploy on contact with water. This causes the boat to be re-righted in seconds with reduced risk to life. Our products help to ensure these systems work efficiently at all times.
