Spinlock - Faster in - water rescue - day or night

The revolutionary Spinlock PylonTM LED Lifejacket Antenna Light deploys automatically to give all-round 360 degree visibility to rescuers. 

Wearing an emergency lifejacket light is an essential aid to fast rescue, day or night. But today’s lifejacket lights suffer from the same problem: All of them are intermittently hidden from rescuers by the casualty because they deploy below in-water head level. 

The Pylon Antenna Light operates at a height of 23cm, above in-water head level. Until the lifejacket inflates it lies flat attached to the lifejacket bladder ready to deploy automatically to its full operating height. 

Tests confirm that the Pylon is more easily detected from any distance than conventional lifejacket lights, in all sea and visibility conditions, when viewed from a typical rescue craft. 

As well being the only built-in antenna light with all-round visibility, Pylon is the only emergency light that gives early warning of battery discharge. Other lights can indicate that battery and bulb are working – but not for how long. The patented Pylon’s simple test switch will confirm that the light will continue to flash for more than the required 10 hours. 

The Pylon light is available as an Spinlock Accessory for easy fitting to any 150N & 275N Lifejacket to improve its in-water visibility and is fitted as standard on every 2012 Spinlock Deckvest 5D Lifejacket Harness.
