Ocean Safety expands commercial marine safety product portfolio
Specialist in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hire of marine safety equipment, Ocean Safety has expanded its commercial marine portfolio to offer a wider selection of commercial lifejackets and accessories, including Spinlock’s DURO range.
Supporting the expansion of its premium range of commercial lifejackets, Ocean Safety’s four branches in Southampton, Plymouth, Aberdeen and Greenock have all been awarded Approved Spinlock Service Station status.
Spinlock’s DURO range of personal floatation devices (PFDs) include both SOLAS and ISO approved products, designed for different levels of function and buoyancy.
Popular with people working on or near water that need to comply with MCA/IMO regulation, the DURO SOLAS 275N lifejacket has been engineered for demanding use in tough conditions with a heavy duty, durable outer cover, while a buckle system ensures ease of donning and the ultimate in comfort and fit.
Combining comfort and fit with a lifejacket harness, Spinlock’s DURO+ 275N lifejacket is low profile with chest and back adjustments, ideal for the more active commercial offshore operative.
Completing the DURO lifejacket range are the compact DURO 170N and 275N heavy-duty, everyday work lifejackets. Simple to don, it sits high on the torso and is cut high on the chest for a full range of movement, offering increased mobility and comfort for busy boat or dock crews in more industrial environments.
“Our aim is to offer the most comprehensive range of quality commercial marine safety products,” says Ocean Safety’s managing director, Alistair Hackett. “The addition of the Spinlock commercial products to our portfolio, not only helps us to achieve our goal, but means we are now a one stop shop for safety for workers offshore and afloat. The DURO range is almost unique in their ability to work in conjunction with 3rd party fall arrest systems which is another added benefit”
Ocean Safety’s commercial range will further be augmented with the addition of Spinlock’s Pro-Tech heavy duty protective cover and essentials packs. Designed to be integrated with the DURO lifejackets, the Pro-Tech is ideal for use in dirty work operations and provides a resistant barrier against contaminants such as paints, oils and chemicals which can quickly damage a lifejacket.
Daily personal items can be carried in a collection of essentials packs, varying in size depending on user requirements, which fit securely to a DURO lifejacket through a toggle attachment (chest pack) or to any belt with secure double fold hook and loop attachments (Chest, Side and Belt packs).
Chris Hill, Spinlock CEO, comments: “As the market leader in supply of commercial marine safety products, Ocean Safety is the ideal choice for us as a route to market for our DURO lifejacket and accessories range.”
“The range has been designed and manufactured specifically for this industrial maritime sector, and we’re looking forward to working with the team at Ocean Safety to ensure that it is the equipment of choice for seafarers and maritime workers alike.”
