SOLAS Approved Lifebuoy Lights L170
The L170 is available in two versions, a commercial version and a version with a unique bracket, specially designed for mounting with leisure Lifebuoys. Both versions are fully SOLAS approved and differ only in the bracket supplied. Both brackets are designed for easy fitment.
Please specify if required for commercial or leisure when ordering.
The light automatically switches on when the lifebuoy is deployed. As the lifebuoy is deployed, the lanyard will lift the light from its mounting bracket. Upon leaving the bracket, the rip cord attached to the switch will switch the light on. When switched on, the light will provide a flashing light. Once the light has been deployed, it must be considered expended and replaced with a new light.
Fit and Forget
Both Lifebuoy Lights offer a five year life. No maintenance or replacement batteries are required. This saves time and expense during inspections.
These Lifebuoy Lights are amongst the smallest and lightest lights available on the market today.
76 Metres Drop Height
MED/SOLAS and USCG standards call for the Lifebuoy lights to be dropped from 30 metres. Both these Lifebuoy lights have passed a drop height test from 76 metres high. This makes these new lifebuoy lights suitable for use on any platform or vessel with high bridge wings.
Both Lifebuoy Lights use the latest advances in LED technology. They feature very low current consumption and enhanced reliability. Both Lifebuoy Lights feature a flashing light.
The L170 light should be mounted so that when the lifebuoy is removed a direct pull is exerted on the lanyard thus ensuring that the light is withdrawn from the container and switched on. Screw the container to a secure location using all holes provided, making sure that when the drop to the water is not greater than 76 metres. Secure the lanyard to the lifebuoy. Ensure that the release toggle is fitted to the switch and that the switch is in the off position. IMPORTANT: Ensure the lanyard is free to release the light.
