FEATURES & BENEFITS:
• Floats horizontally, vertically or at 45 degrees, to
simulate a live person or dead body – achieved
by redistributing foam pieces within the overalls
in a matter of seconds. *Adult and Youth
• The tough nylon mesh carcass allows the water
to penetrate quickly, allowing the legs to drop
beneath the surface, leaving only the head and
shoulders visible, if desired.
• Dry weight 40Kg (Adult) increases to
approximately 65Kg retrieval weight from water.
• Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape
on the head make the manikin highly visible.
• Strong webbing loop at the back allows easy
handling, storage and suspension for drying.
• Built in Polypropylene strips allow flexibility
in the water but prevent the manikin from
bending in half when using recovery devices
such as a Jason’s Cradle.
• Comes complete with overalls and boots, which
are easily replaced if damaged.
NOT SUITED FOR:
• Use in temperatures above 100°C or flashover
scenarios – See our Fire House manikin.
• Black Search & Rescue hoodie to part cover the
manikin to decrease visibility in the water.
