What are maritime safety products?

Maritime Safety Products are products used in the maritime industry to increase safety on vessels, cruise ships, cargo ships or even offshore platforms. Maritime Safety products, also called SOLAS Safety products, are a vital part of safety for sailing in international waters. At T-ISS, we provide these safety products for evacuations, rescues, and survival during emergency situations.


Why must Maritime Safety Products comply with SOLAS regulations?

Regulations and standards set by organizations like SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) play a vital role in the design, implementation, and use of maritime safety products. These regulations are comprehensive and detailed, aiming to ensure the highest levels of safety for all vessels sailing in international waters.

At T-ISS, we make sure that all our products comply with these regulations. We only offer products that meet the stringent criteria for effectiveness in emergency situations, have user-friendliness in mind and are tested and certified to comply with SOLAS regulations. This consistency ensures that ships from all over the world have the same safety standards, making sure there is a universal approach to safety measures at sea.

What maritime safety products do you need on a ship?

In the unfortunate case of an emergency, there are several Maritime Safety Products you need on board in order to get your crew and passengers to safety. These emergencies, like shipwrecks, collisions, fires, or man-overboard incidents, can be stressful and frightening, but with the right equipment you will be able to help those in need.

At T-ISS, we offer the following Maritime Safety Products:

Breathing Devices

We offer two different breathing devices, our EEBD (Emergency Escape Breathing Device) and our SCBA (Self Containing Breathing Apparatus). The EEBD is a compact, portable device that can be used by anyone in an emergency situation. They are lightweight and compact and don’t require a separate air supply. The SCBA, however, has a six liter volume cylinder. This one is used by fire-fighters and emergency rescuers.

Safety Ladders

There are two different kind of Maritime Safety ladders: the Pilot ladder and the embarkation ladder. You can use the Pilot ladder to get the pilot and crew out of the vessel in normal situations. The embarkation ladder, however, is used to by the crew in emergency situations.

To hold the Safety ladders into place, we also offer Ladder Lockers. Our Magnetic Ladder Locker keeps the ladder in place by providing safely removable anchor points for the ladder on the ship’s side. Our second ladder locker, the Pneumatic Ladder locker, secures the bottom of the accommodation ladder or gangway on the ship’s side by using vacuum pressure supplied by the deck air supply.

Release hooks

A release hook is a device designed to securely hold a life raft or rescue boat in place on a ship. A release hook can release a life raft or rescue boat quickly and safely into the water during an emergency situation. These hooks serve a crucial role in maritime safety, ensuring that life-saving equipment can be deployed swiftly and efficiently when needed.

We offer different kinds or release hooks, that can be handled manually or automatically.

  • The Helicopter Crash Equipment kit is a special kit designed to provide essential tools and safety equipment necessary for emergency response and rescue operations following a helicopter crash or emergency landing.
