Survitec's ShoreMaster IBA offers double buoyancy chambers manufactured from a specially formulated polyurethane (PU) proofed nylon fabric. This fabric is highly resistant to abrasion and impervious to corrosion in the marine environment. Far more durable than rubber-based fabrics, the reduced need for repairs results in considerable savings in servicing costs. Welded seams (significantly stronger than glued seams) give the raft an extremely rugged construction. All 8 man ShoreMaster liferafts include a boarding ladder.
A lightweight, waterproof, durable valise is available for all sizes of ShoreMaster liferafts. Valises are made of a high visibility material. When packed, the valise design and shape make it easy to launch the raft overboard. A space saving low profile fiberglass container is available for all ShoreMaster liferafts. The container is secured to an aluminum deck-mounted stowage cradle with a hydrostatic release allowing for both manual and automatic deployment.
