The Guardian Lifebuoy Housing is a premier product at a very affordable price.

Built with Durapol™ material, the unit can withstand extremes of temperature, to protect the life-saving devices inside from harmful UV which can degrade the equipment.

The Housings also act as a deterrent to vandals and thieves, reducing the frequency of costly Lifebuoy replacement.

Glasdon lifebuoys are fully compliant with Chapter III of the Life Saving Appliances code as per the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).
