versatile rescue cage that is suitable for use from all vessels,
especially high sided ones, for the recovery & rescue of
persons from the sea, by ship or harbour.
The ‘C Rescue’ cage is a robust aluminium
framed lightweight structure with open ends that floats on
the water and supports a netting base 300mm below the surface
providing a ‘safe haven’ for the casualty to
swim into. This is a simple, low maintenance
effective device that folds compactly for storage and can
be deployed in 20 seconds with no in depth training required.
The cage was tested extensively in the Lowestoft Nautical
College Wave Tank in the worst weather conditions they could
provide and can be deployed anywhere round the vessel, pulled
in the water using the guide ropes round the vessel to the
casualty or left in the water, attached loosely to the vessel,
as a ‘safe haven’ for the casualty should the
situation develop, depending on the weather conditions being
The cost is modest, compared
to some other rescue equipment and can be supplied with
a purpose built storage box for convenient fixing on the vessel.
