Norwegian Firm Offers Porthole/Escape Hatch —Meets Safety Rules
A Norwegian company, MSCI, is marketing a new and revolutionary combined porthole/escape hatch as an extra source of security for vessel crew and passengers.
J E T O B - T - 3 0 1 has been patented, and meets all classification requirements for safety at sea.
It is approved by the Norwegian M a r i t i m e Directorate and Det Norske Veritas.
The unique design of the product allows a person in an emergency situation to change an ordinary looking porthole into an emergency exit within seconds by turning an approved locking device.
The escape opening is sufficiently large enough to allow a per- sinson wearing a life jacket or a survival suit to evacuate the vessel in minimum time through the porthole when other routes are blocked or dangerous.
The JETOB - T - 301 has been designed with t r i p l e s e c u r i ty against mechanical strain and can be installed in all parts of the vessel, including the lower part of the hull, according to classification rules.
The first JETOB - T - 301 units are now being installed on Norwegian passenger vessels and are also designed for naval vessels, offshore and other commercial vessels.
