Fladen Rescue System
Survival in water deends on both the ability to float (buoyancy) and heat. Water chills the human body 25 times faster than air does. If water penetrates a person’s clothes, the chilling process increases.
That’s why the Fladen Flotation Suit is well insulated and equipped with elastic velcro bands, neoprene wristlets, a belt, a high collar and a hood. This reduces water flow, and warms the water layer between your body and the suit.
The flotation suit is tested and approved according to CE EN 393, and has 60-70% more buoyancy than standards require. This buoyancy provides a good floating position and unobstructed respiration, while still being low enough to allow the wearer to swim.
The Fladen Flotation Suit has the most effective reflectors on the market. These, together with the bright colours around the head, shoulders and arms, make it easier to discover and rescue the wearer.
The Fladen Flotation Suit is made of 210 denier Oxford. All construction seams are double-sewn with water-resistant nylon thread, and taped on the inside, making the flotation suit watertight and durable.
The suits are manufactured at an ISO 9000 certified factory.
