You operate the best equipment, and spare no maintenance, because safety is your number one priority.

Each life raft is meticulously handcrafted and individually tested to compliment the exceptional safety and performance. Using state of the art technologies, Winslow is able to provide a compliant life raft without compromising safety.

All Winslow helicopter life rafts are vacuum packed in WINSLOW’s UltimaWrap which provides a barrier to moisture and atmospheric contamination and extends the life raft service to a full 3 years between scheduled maintenance.

Winslow offers many packaging options including hard packs, valise packs, and canisters for deck mounting. Winslow is also the industry leader in custom life raft pack design. This custom pack feature, combined with the minimum weight, allows for more stowage options in or around the cockpit/helm area.
