For recovering a casualty without the rescuer having to enter the water, from a boat or a steep-sided canal/lake or where there is a large vertical-distance recovery. It can be operated by one person, has an effective reach of up to 4.5 metres, and yet weighs only 3 Kg.
Without this equipment, a casualty could be lost due to the freeboard, crew fatigue or the lack of crew numbers. The SB Rescue Sling is approved for military use (NATO stock-listed) and is widely-used on pilot boats, workboats, small passenger craft and rescue vessels - we have already supplied more than 500 units to vessels around the UK, in other parts of Europe, and as far afield as Australia.
NB Intended for rescuing uninjured personnel only.
(Can also be used with the SB Rescue Davit).
