  • Overview
    SWITLIK’s OPR is designed to be a high quality, light weight, offshore life raft, with a convertible canopy system, 5-Year Service and heat sealed construction. The OPR provides 1,350 lbs. of inflated buoyancy and 24 sq. ft. of floor area and offers excellent ventilation as well as total protection from the elements.

    Quality materials,
    superior construction.

    SWITLIK Signature Convertible Canopy System 

    • Comes standard with the canopy furled upon deployment, making the raft easier to board.
    • Once in the raft, the arch tubes can be inflated by separate CO2 cylinders or manual inflation tubes.
    • Canopy can be partially open to provide better ventilation or fully zipped for total protection from the worst weather.
    • Deflating arches upon exit is best for rescue teams to make a speedy extraction.

    Be confident your raft is ready

    With SWITLIK’s air charge inflation system, there is now a visible “go/no go” pressure gauge that lets you know your raft is ready to deploy. Time sensitive survival equipment for Part 91 & Part 135 Kits is packed in an external pocket allowing for updating without the cost of servicing the actual life raft.
     

    Righting the Raft

    Your life raft was designed to inflate right-side up. However, wind and waves may cause it to inflate upside down. If this happens, the boarding ladder can be reversed to help you easily right the raft. Climbing the ladder nearest to the inflation cylinder you can use the righting strap to help pull yourself up, and flip the raft over.

    Ventilation and Visibility

    A serious cause of seasickness is the bright orange light which filters through the orange canopy fabric of other rafts. The soothing opaque blue coating that lines SWITLIK’s raft canopies prevents sunlight from passing through the canopy, so there is no flickering of light. The convertible canopy also provides four openings to allow for ventilation, and 360° of visibility.

    5 Year Service Interval.

    Unlike any other raft on the market, the CPR’s soft valise and hard container options each have a first of its kind 5 year service interval. This extended service interval helps to reduce the overall cost of life raft ownership. SWITLIK accomplished this in a responsible manner through the combined use of our patented and military proven hermetically sealed packaging system and compressed air inflation. This better protects the raft’s materials and provides excellent cold weather inflation performance versus traditional CO2 inflation systems.

    Relection is key

    High visibility raft canopy fabric and strategically located reflective patches improve the visibility of the life raft during rescue. The OPR has an exterior light that is activated upon raft deployment, as well as SOLAS-grade reflective tape and patches located all around the raft.
