Our Engineering Capabilities



Leafield Marine have a team of incredible engineers who work on designing the best products and solutions for our customers. We are renowned for our engineering strength and work closely with our customers in the early phases of product design. This allows us to make sure we create the products our customers need.

Our engineering capabilities are broad due to our long history of experience. We have worked with inflatable structures for over 60 years. As a result, our team have a lot of experience with a variety of unique projects. Many of these are responsible for saving lives in demanding situations.

Our engineers are happy to offer ongoing technical support and advice to our customers. We also work through development testing with you. If your product requires specific approvals, we can assist you throughout the approval process. Our team are highly knowledgeable in this area due to our background of experience. The majority of our air valves and inflation systems have SOLAS approval and pass the PED. However, we recommend that you contact us to confirm the product approvals before use.


Seahaven engineering

One of the recent large-scale projects our team worked on was this industry changing lifeboat. The team worked alongside Survitec on their world-first Seahaven project. Seahaven is the world’s largest inflatable lifeboat, designed with the capacity to evacuate a total of 1,060 passengers. Our engineers worked alongside many others at Survitec to design and implement the large-scale life raft inflation and evacuation systems needed for this project. The system is deployed at the push of a button with inflation in just four minutes. Leafield Marine are proud to have worked on this world-class piece of marine engineering.

When it comes to life raft inflation and evacuation system design, we suggest that you contact us directly. This allows our team to learn about your product and recommend the best design for your unique needs.


If you have a project coming up, large or small, our engineering team are happy to help. They can provide expert advice and work with you to find solutions that meet your needs.
