Crewsaver locks in lifejacket protection

Crewsaver locks in lifejacket protection

(Posted on 17/03/21)

Building on its leading reputation for increased lifejacket safety and pushing the boundaries in search of excellence for its customers, Survitec brand, Crewsaver, is pleased to announce the launch of EXOLOK.

EXOLOK is a new cylinder locking system that provides increased security for gas cylinders attached to lifejackets – helping to ensure your lifejacket protection is well and truly locked in.

EXOLOK will be fitted to all Crewsaver lifejackets going forwards. It can additionally be retrofitted to all existing Crewsaver lifejackets with UML or Halkey Roberts firing heads by owners.

From March 2021, Crewsaver inflatable lifejacket services carried out by approved service stations will incorporate EXOLOK as standard.

The innovative system removes any potential for a gas cylinder to work loose within a lifejacket, instilling more confidence than ever regarding lifejacket performance.

Users can perform a quick visual check to see that all is well, making sure their gas cylinder is correctly threaded with a glance to see that two arrows line-up.

Matthew Bridge, Crewsaver's Commercial Director, said: "At Crewsaver, we see it as our role to not only build the safest lifejackets available but also to ensure they are worn correctly and are always ready for action. People can be confident on the water when they know their kit will work. As we've always said, it's what's inside that counts."

Nigel Parks, Head of Design at Crewsaver, said. "We are proud of how lightweight the system is, its discreet nature and the ease of installation. Crewsaver is leading the charge to make sure its customers have robust safety and protection when they're out on the water, whether that's on a yacht or crew transfer vessel."

The orange EXOLOK system is for UML operating mechanisms, while the yellow is for Halkey Roberts firing heads.

From 2021 all-new Crewsaver lifejackets will include EXOLOK as standard, bringing safety and innovation to the forefront. The system will be available to buy from mid-March, with an RRP of £5.

Even though EXOLOK offers additional peace of mind, all existing advisories remain in place for regular lifejacket services.
