«SeaWind» breaks new barriers
With its unique triple certification and high-tech details the «SeaWind» immersion suit breaks new barriers with its many fields of application. Never before has a survival suit achieved such a wide range of certification, with approvals from SOLAS, ISO and EASA. The suit is tailored for both demanding and many varied work situations.
Many years of intensive development by Hansen Protection in Norway has yielded results. SeaWind is the world’s first survival suit to be approved for helicopter transport, shipping and work use.
SeaWind has been certified by SOLAS, ISO and EASA. As such it has been approved for most any demanding work situation. No other survival suit can claim to be suitable for such a wide range of applications as SeaWind.
Hansen Protection has worked relentlessly for a long time to be able to be the first to offer a survival suit that is approved for work, shipping and helicopter transport. To achieve the helicopter transport approval the company has had to fit the suit with a lining, and it has to be worn with a SeaLion Europe lifejacket.
Emergency Breathing System
The SeaAir EBS Emergency Breathing System is integrated in the SeaLion Europe lifejacket. This system makes it possible to start breathing under water, something that was not possible with previous systems. In addition, the suit is equipped with a floating buddy line hook, which is a feature unique to Hansen Protection.
Its many details, great flexibility and wide range of applications makes this Norwegian made suit from Hansen Protection the first choice for many occupational groups and professionals, not least for use in the demanding conditions that is part of the service and maintenance of wind turbines.
SeaWind is designed for optimal ergonomics and meets the needs of discerning workers so they can move freely without restrictions around their knees or seat. The suit weighs less than 2 kg. SeaWind is a dry suit. Waterproof zips under the arms provide good ventilation for active workers. In addition, both the hood and gloves can be placed in convenient pockets when working.
