SB Rescue Sling



Complete MOB System with Single User Operation:

The SB Rescue Sling is a comprehensive man overboard system specifically designed for the retrieval of a casualty without the need for the rescuer to enter the water. This versatile unit is suitable for use from boats or in situations where there are steep-sided canals, lakes, or long-distance recovery requirements.


Despite its lightweight construction, weighing only 3 Kg, the SB Rescue Sling can be operated by a single individual. Additionally, it can be effectively utilized in combination with the SB Davit.


The frame and the harness also feature the ASSpect label system, enabling users to scan the labels from a compatible phone via the app to reveal inspection dates, date of first use, serial numbers and more.


Note – A range of accessories are also available which include the SB mounting kit , SB storage bag and the SB surface forensic
recovery body bag.
