RAFTS - MARINE
At Helicopter Helmet, we only carry and provide our customers top quality products. We offer pilot gear as well as marine life rafts, and much more for sale. But we don’t stop there. We also offer life raft rentals and repairs.
Helicopter Helmet proudly carries Marine Grade Life Rafts like Viking, Switlik, Suvivtec, and Revere. In addition, we also offer a select number of Winslow Life Rafts, such as Global Rescue, Offshore and Offshore Plus. These life rafts are trusted by mariners to keep them safe and protect their crew, no matter the size of their vessel. All our life rafts in our “Marine Rafts” selection are certified by the factory and dated to current specifications and service standards. Our wide selection of life rafts can be ordered in either a soft Valise or with a Hard Container to mount on your boat with a matching cradle. Take it a step further and choose to have your life raft self-release with the use of a Hydrostatic Cutter.
Why Use a Hydrostatic Cutter for my Marine Life Raft?
Have your marine life raft safely stored away in the matching cradle, and available to you at a moment's notice with the use of a Hydrostatic Cutter. With a Hydro Cutter, your marine life raft will remain in its cradle until needed. Once the raft drops under 8 feet of water, your hydro cutter will activate, which will release and inflate your raft automatically. This method allows you and your crew to safely stow your marine life raft where it is out of the way but never out of reach. This is especially important for vessels with many moving parts, or a particularly busy crew such as sailboats. Sailboat owners will want to mount their life rafts on the raft railing closest to them. If their life raft is mounted on the deck of their boat, they run the risk of it getting caught in the rigging, rendering it unavailable if it were to be needed. It is always important to mount your raft away from sails and rigging, and in a place where it can be easily accessed.
What if my Commercial Boat Requires a Larger Raft to Accommodate a Larger Crew?
Our selection at Helicopter Helmet can accommodate crews of all sizes. If you are a commercial boat looking for a marine life raft, you will want to look at IBA or Inflatable Buoyant Apparatus Rafts. These rafts are specifically designed for commercial sailor and their vessel. Our selection of Inflatable Buoyant Apparatus rafts ranges from 4 man-size to 150 man-size, each with unique cradle and canister assemblies. Helicopter Helmet understands the laws and regulations that your business is required to follow. Our team of experts will help you to determine which marine life raft is best suited for your vessel and your crew’s needs.
Like we mentioned before, we also offer our customers with the option to rent both aviation and marine life rafts. This service allows you to rent on a daily, weekly and even monthly basis. As you only pay for the time it is in your possession and the shipping cost, it is very cost effective to ensure your safety. This service is not only provided for professional situations but also recreational trips. All you need to do is give us a call and we can schedule a reservation or work with you to have it delivered on a day that works for you. Our rental system is very simple. We package the raft at our facility and ship it to you through Fed Ex Ground. After it arrives, all you have to do is remove the life raft from the casing and take it with you on your flight or boat ride.
Emergency Raft Products
Besides marine and aviation rafts, we also provide other products that are essential to have while on a life raft. Make sure you grab one of our anti exposure suits such as the Mustang MSF300 Tactical Aircrew Dry Suit System, or our Sentintel Series Heavy Duty Boat Rescue Dry Suit to be better prepared if any emergency situation would arise. We also offer Orion Sea Dye Markers for those situations you will need some form of signaling for your survival. Always make sure that you grab a life vest as well when you’re going on a trip. In addition, we offer EPIRB survival kits, in case you want to have your emergency supplies all in one place. Don’t forget to grab a pack of rations and water, in case you are stuck in an unwanted situation. It’s always better to be prepared than to wish you would’ve prepared when you’re already in trouble.
