Rescue Universal


Based on our market leading Rescue 850 we have designed a universal, one-size-fits-all rescue PFD for the emergency services. The Rescue Universal PFD fits people from extra small to double-XL so you’ll only have to buy one size of PFD to fit all your personnel. Research at the University of Central Lancashire has produced a new patent design for our adjustable UCLan chest harness. This does not have to be cut to fit and can be adjusted for anyone to meet the latest best practice for harness length. The Rescue Universal has the same comprehensive features as our Rescue 800 and 850 and more, including: An abrasion resistant Cordura shell with a heavy-duty ripstop nylon inner. Our integral failsafe shoulder strap system runs front to back and is sewn into the waist belt. It is also tested to 3.2 kN. The quick release buckles can be operated with one hand. There’s a cowtail attachment point, and two split D-rings for cowtail storage on the front. There are additional attachment points for light sticks and SOLAS reflective patches front and back for working at night. Two deep cargo pockets, which have clip points inside and a chest mounted lash tab for attaching other accessories. A velcro panel on the back for attaching your rescue insignia and removable leg straps, for the option to add extra security to your PFD fit. The Rescue Universal has 100 Newtons of floatation, which is well above the ISO standard. It’s certified to ISO 12402-6 special purpose a standard which requires additional testing on the harness and load bearing components.
