Hammar H20 Solas Model
Designed for liferafts from 6 up to 150 persons. The Hammar H20 release unit consists of a double looped white rope line, a release mechanism and a Red Weak Link - breaking strength 2.2kN.
The white strong rope of Hammar H20 is secured to the deck or liferaft cradle and attached to the liferaft lashing with a sliphook. If the boat sinks, the water pressure will, within 4 metres, activate the sharp knife which cuts the white strong rope and the liferaft will float free. As th boat sinks, the liferaft painter line will be stretched and the liferaft starts to inflate. The Red Weak Link breaks and survivors can board the floating lifertaft.
The Hammar H20 needs no annual service, maintenance or spares, but must be replaced after 2 years of use.
