Free Fall Preventer

Until final safety approval of the release mechanism of lifebaots according to MSC.1, Circ. 1392 on each ship, fall preventer devices meeting specifications following MSC.1, Circ. 1327 should be employed

for each existing lifebaot release and retrieval system. Whilst certain class societies recommend this measure, other classes and/or flag state administrations make this a mandatory requirement.

The FPDs will be fixed at one end at the release hook and at the other and at the davit chain, and serve as an additional safety device in case of an unintentional opening of the release hook.

Some manufacturers of lifeboats, such as Hyundai Lifeboats and Qingdao Beihai, have developped their own Free Fall Preventer Devices, which we offer ex our warehouses.

We can also prepare indiviual quotations of FPDs for use with lifeboats of other manufacturers.
