A life jacket saves lives. It is designed to always turn the user to the supine position and keep the airway above the surface of the water by a good margin, even if the user has lost consciousness or is unable to swim. Lifejackets are available with an inflatable lung or with fixed buoyancy material, common to all of them is that in the activated position they have most of the buoyancy on the front and a firm collar that supports and holds up the head. A life jacket is the obvious choice for people who cannot swim.
Lifejackets always have a carrying capacity of at least 100N. The inflatable models are divided into different classes depending on the conditions under which they are to be used. An automatic life jacket inflates when the user ends up in the water, while a manual life jacket must be activated by the user.

WHICH MODEL SHOULD I SELECT?
A good buoyancy aid rated to 50Newton class will support a person over 25 kg with a good freeboard but will still require the wearer to be a good swimmer as it will not turn you over into the safe back position. This category contains all-purpose, specialist buoyancy aids and floatation clothing. These are popular products because they have a perfect balance between function, freedom of movement and security.
If you require more buoyancy or are a non-swimmer you should look at our 100Newton lifejacket selection and these are available in sizes to suit persons from 3 kg to over 100Kg. We would like to point out that we are especially proud of our children’s 100Newtons lifejackets. Should you require more freedom of movement and extra buoyancy please look at 150 Newton inflatable lifejackets.
