Fibrelight Recovery Cradle
It is lighter, more compact and more versatile than any other comparable device. Moreover, the cradle requires only regular inspections and minimal maintenance every three years. It can be easily rolled and stowed.
Use & implementation
The Fibrelight Recovery Cradle is primarily designed for use by rescue craft, rigid inflatables and ship lifeboats, liferafts and marinas. However, it can have multiple other uses:
- Rescue of injured or wounded people (as a stretcher)
- Boarding ladder: its net-like structure allows its use as an easy-to-deploy boarding ladder
- Support net and/or crib for handicapped people: it is a strong and durable device, ideal for people with difficulties with getting to the water on their own.
The Fibrelight Recovery Cradle has been tested to ISO 799 as part of the SOLAS approval programme. This required successive rungs to be loaded to 900 kg plus, and sustained for one minute without failure. The construction has also been tested and approved for Thermal Ageing, Weathering, UV Light, Oil Resistance and practical performance.
