The Light and Smoke Lifebuoy Marker produces dense orange smoke for 15 minutes and features two self-contained, inversion switched, LED lights which far exceed SOLAS requirements for output and duration.
Ships are required to carry 2 markers, one mounted on each bridge wing with the brackets supplied and attached by line to a 4kg lifebuoy. The signal is used to mark the position of a man overboard by day or night. It can be automatically deployed by releasing the attached lifebuoy, or manually activated.
