Survitec launches new Crewfit XD Fire Retardant lifejacket

Safety solution provider Survitec has expanded its Crewsaver Workvest range by launching the new Crewfit XD Fire Retardant lifejacket.

The Crewfit XD offers the ultimate in advanced comfort and performance technologies. Using a modular design, the product is offered with a choice of covers, inflation mechanisms and harness options to best suit user requirements.  The Fusion 3D technology provides complete freedom of movement and ensures the lifejacket remains comfortable even during long periods of use, while the unique design with built in twin waist adjusters allows for easy donning.

The fire-retardant outer cover provides an efficient choice for welders and anyone requiring protection from sparks and embers. The high-performance fire retardant outer cover also protects against flame, burning and molten metal sparks as the cover is made of a blend of fire-resistant fibres with an aluminised face.

The lifejacket, available in both 150N and 275N bladder size options, outperforms approval requirements and offers the wearer superior in-water buoyancy. The unique buoyancy distribution provides exceptional turning solutions even when wearing heavy clothing. The bladder is highly visible on inflation and hosts an impressive array of features including built-in chin support, location beacon attachment points and dual-lifting beckets.

The Crewsaver industrial and commercial range has been developed over many years using only the most advanced fabrics and manufacturing processes. Continuous stringent research and development within the industry has seen Crewsaver products in use worldwide in a diverse range of commercial sectors and institutions. Designed to perform in the most arduous environments, Crewsaver has developed a range that suits all your safety needs.

Nigel Parkes, Head of Design at Crewsaver, said: “Due to popular demand we are pleased to announce the exciting launch of the new Crewfit XD Fire Retardant Workvest. The Workvest range is packed with innovative features both inner and outer facing and the addition of a fire-retardant option provides our customers with a fully comprehensive offering designed to satisfy their individual workforce requirements.”
