The Restube PFD is the smallest certified pfd on the market. Feel free and safe when you are out there!
Restube PFD is the smallest certified float buoy on the market. This PFD (Personal Flotation Device) is in the standard of swimming aids with a flotation of 50 Newton.
The deflated device is attached to your body (belt) and when inflated comes in front of you. This will allow you to easily slip the top lanyard around your neck.
Restube PFD complies with DIN EN ISO 12402-5 and DIN EN ISO 12402-6. It can be used in situations that legally require the use of a certified floatation aid. The inflated device has a buoyancy of 75 newton. For applications where no flotation device with a specific standard is required, we recommend our Restube basic, classic and sports system. With the proven Restube buoy shape, you are more flexible in the water, you can wave to your position and give it to help others.
Restube PFD Features (official website link):
- Automatic inflation triggered manually (pull the trigger and the buoy inflates thanks to a CO2 cartridge provided),
- Floating power of 75N
- Reusable (easy change of cartridge after inflation)
- Additional manual inflation possible (to the mouth via a tube)
- Color: sea blue
- Developed in Europe (Germany)
NOTE: This equipment is a PFD (Life Vest) in the sense of the law. However, although this safety element is quite satisfactory for the practice of water sports (rivers, lakes, sea shores) for the adults knowing how to swim, we of course recommend the use of a classic PFD vest (or self-inflating) in the case of a situation where you would be alone on the water or far from the coast. In any case, please use common sense in dealing with potential hazards and consult with authorities or professionals before accessing the water.
