Switlik Offshore Passenger Raft

Offshore Passenger Raft – Convertible Canopy

The best in class

Different from all other rafts with limited points of entry, the convertible canopy on the OPR allows for rapid and flexible boarding during an emergency, without forcing anyone to get into the water. This decreases the risk of hypothermia, and increases the safety factor for everyone on board when those who are young, old or injured need to get off the boat quickly.

Board quick and easy.

Boarding a life raft from a boat or the water can be difficult. That is why the OPR is built with four (4) boarding stations. Each boarding ladder has a wide, stiff step to make it easier to climb over twin tubes.

 

When there’s a need for speed

opr-speed

The SWITLIK signature convertible canopy feature also allows passengers from any generation to quickly get off your vessel and safely into the raft. Multiple entry points reduce the need for anyone to get in the water.

 

opr-speedBe confident your raft is ready.

With SWITLIK’s air charge inflation system, there is now a visible “go/no go” pressure gauge that lets you know your raft is ready to deploy. Time sensitive survival equipment is packed in an external pocket allowing for updating without the cost of servicing the actual life raft.

 

Stay put on the water.

The OPR comes standard with four high-capacity rapidly deploying weight ballast bags. The water pockets provide weight to the raft to keep it stable during entry and exit. The OPR is also upgradable to the full wrap around Torodial Stability Device (TSD). The SWITLIK TSD provides superior stability and has been proven by the USCG, the RAAF as well as other SAR Organizations worldwide, to be the best option for keeping a raft stable and upright during all conditions including the helicopter rescue.

Flipping the life raft is easy

Righting the raft.

Your life raft was designed to inflate right-side up. However, wind and waves may cause it to inflate upside down. If this happens, the boarding ladder can be reversed to help you easily right the raft. Climbing the ladder nearest to the inflation cylinder you can use the righting strap to help pull yourself up, and flip the raft over.

High visibility and ventilation in a Switlik OPR
Ventilation and Visibility.

A serious cause of seasickness is the bright orange light which filters through the orange canopy fabric of other rafts. The soothing opaque blue coating that lines SWITLIK’s raft canopies prevents sunlight from passing through the canopy, so there is no flickering of light. The convertible canopy also provides four openings to allow for ventilation, and 360° of visibility.

Reflection is key.

High visibility raft canopy fabric and strategically located reflective patches improve the visibility of the life raft during rescue. The OPR has an exterior light that is activated upon raft deployment, as well as SOLAS-grade reflective tape and patches located all around the raft.
