Frequently Asked Questions
Sadly, each year around 200 people drown in coastal waters around the UK and Ireland. Research shows that wearing a lifejacket can increase your chances of survival by up to four times if you're in cold water*. Therefore, wearing a well fitted, well maintained, appropriate lifejacket could save your life.
* Professor Mike Tipton, 2012.
The main aim of a lifejacket is to keep a wearers airway open by rotating them into a face up position with their head above the water. The orange jacket, or bladder, along with reflective tape is used to increase your chances of being seen in the water while a whistle is always included to attract attention in an emergency. A buoyancy aid assists the wearer in keeping buoyant either why they swim to safety or wait for help. They are not classed as life saving devices like life jackets.
Never wear your life jacket under any items of clothing as it could prevent the jacket from inflating.
The N stands for 'Newton'. A Newton is a measurement of force used to indicate how much buoyancy a lifejacket has. The higher the Newton number the more buoyancy it has. Generally speaking, the further away from safety and the more extreme the conditions, the higher number of Newtons will be required in your jacket for your safety. Our buoyancy aids are all 50N which is what most buoyancy aids are. Some specialised buoyancy aids, for white water canoeing for example, are required to be higher at 70N.
All our lifejackets and buoyancy aids are CE Certified and conform to European and UK safety standards.
