Lifejackets with PLB or AIS devices

EPIRB-PLB and AIS devices have decreased in size and price over recent years, making them increasingly popular with sailors, recreational water uses and those working on or close to water.

The Deckvest range features attachment points for the Chest Pack, specifically designed for keeping essentials such as an EPIRB-PLB or AIS close to hand. As well as the Chest Pack, the Essentials Pack range includes the Belt Pack and Side Pack, which can be attached to the belt of any Deckvest or other manufacturer's lifejackets.

A number of AIS devices are marketed as being able to integrate into a lifejacket, with some automatically activated by the lifejacket inflating.*  The Kannad R10 AIS device has been tested to integrate with a Deckvest lifejacket and Kannad have published a document on their own website detailing fitting of a Kannad R10 AIS device into a Deckvest lifejacket. This document can be downloaded from the link below.

The Ocean Signal AIS MOB1 unit has been designed with fitting to the Deckvest Lifejacket in mind and can be fitted to an existing Deckvest or purchased already fitted within the product. 

*Please note that the integration of an EPIRB-PLB or AIS device with a Deckvest lifejacket is at the owner's liability. Spinlock accept no responsibility for the performance of any EPIRP-PLB or AIS fitted into a Deckvest lifejacket or for any damage caused to the Deckvest lifejacket as a result of having fitted an EPIRB-PLB or AIS unit to a Deckvest.
