- Optimal for offshore conditions -
Automatic life jackets with 275 N buoyancy are the right choice for the high seas and extreme weather conditions. Especially if you wear offshore clothing or heavy protective gear, a 275 N class life jacket should be chosen to compensate for the volume of air trapped in the clothing in an emergency. Life Jackets with 275 N and 150 N are usually worn as a preventative measure. i.e. permanently on board, and must therefore offer the greatest possible freedom of movement and be very comfortable as well as capable of withstanding mechanical demands. These benefits make an automatic jacket much more expensive than a foam life jacket. Automatic life jackets must also be serviced every 2 years.
Many life jackets have a greater buoyancy force than their classification suggests. For example, many 275 N life jackets actually have 300 N of buoyancy force and thus offer a greater degree of safety.
We explain everything about life jackets and the differences between automatic 150 N and 275 N life jackets in our life jacket guide and our life jacket video.
