    ☑ Twin independent buoyancy tubes - The high freeboard keeps the water out while the independent chambers provide redundancy in case of a tube failure

    ☑ Exterior light that is activated upon raft deployment

    ☑ SOLAS-grade reflective tape and patches located all around the raft

    ☑ Lightweight, double-coated (inside and out) urethane fabric provides superior abrasion resistance.

    The SWITLIK signature Toroidal Stability Device (TSD) is the best design in the industry for stabilizing a life raft. Unlike the raft with standard water pockets, the TSD keeps the raft stable and in place during a helicopter rescue. This makes the rescue fast and seamless for all involved.  **Toroidal Stability Device or four (4) water pockets as options for stability

    There is no one universal method of rating raft capacities (see here). In fact, there are several different methods and governmental agencies worldwide that rate the capacity of a life raft based on the following criteria: usable floor area, inflated buoyancy, size of an average individual, and their concept of how long someone might be in the raft before rescue, not to mention how you find yourself to be there, i.e. from a sinking vessel or a ditched aircraft.
    As a result, SWITLIK takes the position that a life raft's capacity is truly defined by its total size in floor area and inflated buoyancy. How many "people" that translates into depends upon your usage and interpretation of the above criteria.  A raft that might safely support 6 or 8 people in an emergency for 24 hours will seem a lot smaller for a transoceanic passage where rescue might be weeks in coming.
