SWITLIK’s OPR is designed to be a high quality,
lightweight, offshore life raft, with a convertible canopy system, 5-Year Service and heat sealed construction. The OPR provides 1,350 lbs. of inflated buoyancy and 24 sq. ft. of floor area and offers excellent ventilation as well
Unlike any other raft on the market, the OPR’s Life Raft has a first of its kind 5 year service interval. This extended service interval helps to reduce the overall cost of life raft ownership.
SWITLIK accomplished this in a responsible manner through the combined use of our patented and military proven hermetically sealed packaging system and compressed air inflation.
Compressed air inflation provided excellent cold weather inflation performance versus traditional CO2 inflation systems. The raft is designed to inflate in 10 seconds or less regardless of temperatuire.
With SWITLIK’s air charge inflation system,
there is now a visible “go/
is packed in an external pocket allowing for
updating without the cost of servicing the actual life raft.
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.
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.
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.
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.
