Dacon Scrambling Net
The Dacon Scrambling Net is a man overboard recovery equipment, being used on Standby and Rescue vessels all over the world. The rescue net enables persons in distress to climb to safety. It is a rigid rope net that provides a more stable, non-slip climbing and grip surface compared to other more traditional rope scrambling nets. The rigid rungs combined with heavy duty webbing makes the climbing net significantly easier to climb, as the shape will stay the same and not "collapse" when climbing it. The rigid rope net is of extremely robust design and with a very low total lifecycle cost, which makes this type of man overboard recovery equipment ideal for its users.Distance wheels provide distance to the ship side for an easy grip and foot hold. Internal weight in the bottom rung provides stability in the water for easy entry.
Dacon Rescue Frame
Man Overboard Recovery System for all types of boatsDNV TEC certified and is compliant with Solas Reg. 111/17-1 & Subchapter M requirement §140.425 Fall overboard prevention (a).The Dacon Rescue Frame is a manual rescue net used on rescue crafts for gentle and effective recovery of exhausted, seriously injured or even unconscious persons from the water. The rescue net enables a man overboard recovery in a horizontal position and is quick and easy to handle for rescue personnel. A horizontal recovery position ensures a full body support, which might be decisive in reducing the possibility of shock and aggravation of injuries associated with the recovery of hypothermic- and seriously injured casualties.
Dacon Rescue Scoop
Power-assisted method of recovery Dacon Rescue Scoop RSA is the offshore model used by most Standby Vessels in the North Sea and Canada. It is a large semi-rigid rescue net operated by a standard deck crane. The Scoop is suspended from the ship's side and provides an effective, rough weather recovery system with a rescue reach of about 4-6 m depending on dimensions and crane reach. The casualty is recovered in a horizontal position with full body support to avoid further injury or shock.
Dacon Rescue Basket
The Rescue Basket is a stable and effective power-assisted rescue basket with a 30+ years track record. It is a rugged aluminium construction with soft padding. It has a large float attached to the mast to prevent capsizing and net covered sides for safety. While in the water this maritime rescue system will have a low floating position, assisting people to easily get inside. The attached fenders will rotate and therefore further contribute to an easy "float-in" access from the sea. The fenders also provide protection when hauled against the ship side during recovery.The lifting mast folds down for storage and it comes shipped in two halves to keep shipping costs down.The Dacon Rescue Basket meets the requirements by UKOOA, NMD and various classification societies for use onboard Standby Vessels.
Dacon Rescue Dummy
The Dacon Rescue Dummy is probably the best and most realistic training dummy developed for water rescue training. Previously, while conducting training on various rescue equipment provided to customers, we often came across different types of test dummies made of filled coveralls or other training manikins which had a very light weight and a low resemblance to a real human body.Key features:- Realistic height (1,9 m) and weight (up to 85 kg)- Realistic joints, with restricted limb movements similar to human`s- Extremely rugged - The rescue dummy survives a drop from a platform`s helicopter deck and other rough usage- Test dummy adjustable to float horizontally or vertically in the water - Drainable training manikin for lighter weight during i.e. transport or storage- The Dacon Rescue Dummy is in use on ships and in training centres all over the world as well as Fire Departments, Police, Diver training and many others.
