Lalizas Launches its Hydrostatic Release Unit for Life Rafts
LALIZAS holds a leading position in the marine industry having manufactured and distributed globally millions of lifejackets, life rafts and other premium lifesaving equipment to the commercial sector.
As an outcome of a long-term experience in life rafts’ manufacturing, the company proceeded with the design and production of its HRU (Hydrostatic Release Unit), suitable for life rafts of all shapes and sizes in the market.
LALIZAS HRU is produced in the EU, in accordance with SOLAS/MED/USCG regulations. All units are made in Greece, in the same factory premises where the mechanism for the LALIZAS inflatable lifejackets is also manufactured; a very well-established product in the market for more than 20 years.
The release of the HRU has been made after three years of research & development as well as quality assurance and testing procedures in order to be safe and reliable.
It is tested and approved by one of the most demanding notified bodies in the category of lifesaving appliances, the FORCE Certification A/S.
The mechanism is being automatically activated, in the event of sinking, in a depth of between 1.5 and 4 m. No spare parts or maintenance are required, while replacement is needed 2 years after installation on board. Its maximum lifetime is 5 years after the production date.
