Free Color Brochure On Safety Release Hook For Rescue Boats

The Danish company Norpol Technic A/S of Grinsted has introduced a totally new type of release hook for all kinds of single-point suspension rescue boats and life rafts.

The Norpol Safety Release Hook is a new concept, consisting of a male and female part, which, when put together, automatically lock.

However, the great advantage of the Norpol Safety Release Hook is that release automatically takes place when the rescue boat is floating on the water. Additionally, the hook has a safety stick for manual emergency release.

The Norpol safety release hook, type MOB, satifies SOLAS 86, Chapter III for single-point suspension safety release hooks. It has received classification approvals from Det norske Veritas, Lloyd's Register of Shipping and Germanischer Lloyds and from maritime authorities in Denmark, Norway, England and West Germany. Norpol Technic expects approvals in the near future from the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as French, Dutch, Italian, Finnish and Swedish authorities.

Patented worldwide, the safety release hook is produced in three versions—IRB, ILR and MOB. All of these types have safety working loads (SWL) of 1.2 t, 2.1 t and 3.3 t.

The company is working on a similar two-point supension simultaneous release system for larger boats.

Norpol Technic A/S is offering a free color brochure detailing their safety release hook. For your copy, Circle 111 on Reader Service Card •>
