Besto 150N Commercial

This lifejacket has a robust, oil and diesel resistant outer skin. Through the dirt repelling properties of the lifejacket is it easily kept clean. It is designed for daily use while working at sea, and with the integrated AIS SART easyRESCUE it is the perfect accessory for any emergency.

Easy RESCUE inside

This lifejacket has an integrated AIS SART “easyRESCUE.” When the floating body of the vest inflates in an emergency, a ripcord tears off a magnetic switch from the transmitter. This leads to an automatic activation of the AIS emergency beacon. The easyRESCUE now determines the current GPS position and sends it with a common worldwide standard distress signal via VHF radio technology. This distress signal contains important information, such as, for example, course and speed over ground of the accident victim. Each vessel with an AIS receiver on board within a radius of up to 10 nautical miles will receive this signal and is informed of the emergency as well as detailed information regarding the victim and can participate in the rescue. The GPS position and the resulting course and speed over ground are updated every minute and sent 8 times per minute.

The AIS S.A.R.T. “easyRESCUE” is a rescue device certified by SOLAS and the German Federal Maritime Agency BSH and thus meets the highest quality and safety standards, as they are required in commercial shipping. Additionally, the unit has been tested by the United States Coast Guard and the FCC.

In the best case scenario, your own ship is equipped with AIS, which would provide the best chances for rescuing the accident victim as soon as possible. However, even if your own ship does not have AIS on board, then all the other ships can hurry to help.

This “easyRESCUE inside” BESTO lifejacket is certified for 150 N buoyancy, but actually has a buoyancy of 190 Newtons. The test norms, however, are only for 150 N or 275 N.

A lifejacket in the 150 Newtons buoyancy class is intended for general use and turns a helpless person to a safe floating position, and no further activities are required of this person to maintain this swimming position.
