The Wave Barrier manual PFD is set to manually inflate with the pull of a tab. Preventing the degradation of the water soluble tabs on auto inflating PFDs.
SI-550M - Manual Having a vest that is lightweight, comfortable and low profile is everything a boater needs when looking for an inflatable PFD. The Salus Wave Barrier Inflatable PFD offers all of that and more: the 35 lbs buoyant cell folds quickly and easily into the 500 denier cover and comes with a lifting handle, whistle and reflective tape on the inflated cell for additional visibility. The unique Flex-Wing design provides the wearer enhanced in-water performance with higher mouth freeboard and improved flotation angle compared to conventional vest designs. The patented interlocking lobe design self rights the wearer in under five seconds and provides an effective wave barrier preventing water from being channeled into the airways, while the taller neck design gives vital support to the head and neck, even to an unconscious person. The best known and most highly respected inflator from Halkey-Roberts provides the highest quality and reliable inflation system in the market. With a manual back-up, oral inflator and safety harness and D-ring, this vest provides a piece of mind for any overboard situation.
