The Fibrelight "2" Escape

At this year’s Seawork Show in Southampton (22-24 May, 2012) UK Based Marine safety and survival specialists, BCB Marine, will display  at their stand (MS5) an escape ladder which helps a ship’s crew and passengers step out to safety when things take a turn for the worse.

Knotted ropes can no longer be used for disembarking from cargo ships built after 1st January 2010 with more than 100 metres from stem or stern to the closest survival/rescue craft.  As BCB Marine’s Sales Manager, Jonathan Delf, explained, BCB Marine’s Fibrelight “2” Escape Ladder is designed to meet this requirement: “Our escape ladder provides all the features that ship masters need for a safe and controlled disembarkation.  It is a strong, compact and lightweight double rung ladder, making it is easier and faster to climb and descend than a single rung ladder.

“Our ladders are tailor made to the size of the ship and are supplied in a PVC bag which can be strapped to chosen emergency exit points like a guard rail, a deck and in a forecastle”
