Plastimo Adult Buoyancy Lifejackets Information
We have found this range to be particularly popular for people requiring a 'buoyancy aid' style lifejacket as they have comfortable cut away arm holes; leaving plenty of room for movement and feeling less restrictive to the wearer.
These highly visible and robust lifejackets feature 100N (Newtons) of buoyancy which makes them technically lifejackets as opposed to buoyancy aids. They are great for cruising and feature reflective panels, a whistle and easy fastening zips and buckles.
The primary function of a lifejacket is to aid supporting the wearers airways out of the water and to aid efficient spotting in order to facilitate rescuing should the wearer fall in the water.
Safety features of the lifejackets include:
- 100 Netwons of buoyancy
- Self-righting, supports your head above the water when unconscious
- Three block ergonomic collar construction for comfort
- Fluorescent orange polyester outer shell for optimum visibility
- 100cm2 retro-reflecting stripes for night-time recognition
- Zip closure
- Hem tightening drawstring
- Adjustable waist belt with plastic buckle
- Adjustable quick-fit crutch strap with plastic buckle
- Safety whistle
A buoyancy aid or a lifejacket?
The difference between a buoyancy aid and a lifejacket is the amount of buoyancy and the ability of the jacket to 'self right' the wearer.
A buoyancy aid provides sufficient buoyancy for use in sheltered waters and does not offer self righting capacity. A lifejacket on the other hand keeps the wearer safely on his or her back and provides enough buoyancy for use in different river and sea conditions.
