Liferafts are exposed to extremes of temperature, weather, and sea conditions. Temperature fluctuations and accumulated moisture can lead to deterioration and reduced reliability. To ensure their prolonged use, approved inflatable liferafts and inflatable buoyant apparatus are required to be serviced periodically at an approved liferaft servicing facility.
At Sunfire & Safety Supplies Ltd we provide the full complement of liferaft inspection services:
- Annual Inspections,
- Lift Testing
- Inflation Cylinder Hydro Testing.
Each servicing involves unpacking the liferaft, cleaning and drying it thoroughly, and checking the inflation system to make sure it is fully charged and the inflation valve is in good condition. In addition, the survival equipment packed in the raft is checked to make sure it is in good condition, and any dated equipment past its expiration date, is replaced.
