Life Ring Buoys and Accessories
We stock the Datrex brand "hard shell" life ring buoys. These have proven to hold up better in the marine environment than the old style vinyl dipped models. We also can provide vinyl lettering for either your new buoys or existing stock.
Please take care if your are ordering 30" life rings. We offer two models, the standard (and less expensive) type and a heavier model for use on a bridge wing where its extra weight helps deploy a strobe light and 15 minute smoke signal (not included) which are attached in a rapid deployment rack.
Commercial fishing vessels must use orange life rings with a minimum diameter of 24". They also must be marked with the vessel's name. White life rings are approved for use on recreational vessels and are often used around swimming pools.
