Survitec: PFD Innovations

Maritime Reporter & Engineering News
Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Survitec Group has implemented two improvements to USCG-approved, Type III vests for increased wearer vest visibility. These include adding SOLAS-compliant reflective tape and increasing day-glow tape coverage on collar and pockets. Prototypes for the Imperial 370ERV (Emergency Rescue Vest) and Imperial 2230 Admiral’s Mesh Work Vest reflect these updates. Both the Imperial 370ERV and 2200 series of mesh work vest prototypes have incorporated ripstop fabric. For wearers of the vests working in high winds, this key improvement helps to deter tearing which can compromise the buoyancy and protection provided by the vest. Additionally, the fabric construction of the Imperial 370ERV is approved to withstand 100mph impact.
