The Light and Smoke Lifebuoy Marker produces dense orange smoke for 15 minutes and features two self contained, inversion switched, LED lights which far exceed SOLAS requirements for output and duration. Ships are required to carry 2 markers, one mounted on each bridge wing with the brackets supplied and attached by line to a 4kg Lifebuoy. The signal is used to mark the position of a man overboard by day or night. It can be automatically deployed by releasing the attached lifebuoy, or manually activated.
This compact unit is ideally stored in good magazine conditions in an upright position, mounted to its stainless steel bracket in our original packaging. Onboard vessel: Two units are normally required to be carried. Mounted inverted and attached to a Lifebuoy. Usually positioned on each bridge wing and need a clear, uninterrupted drop into the water.
