Awards upon awards for Spinlock's Lume-On lights
Spinlock, UK marine personal safety product manufacturer, Seawork exhibitor and winner of the 2016 Seawork Award for the Safety category, has recently been announced as winner of the Safety at Sea Awards 2017.
The Safety at Sea Awards recognise those who improve seafarer competence and risk management with innovations and achievements in the fields of training, operations, equipment and services. Spinlock were presented with the Best Safety Product of the Year for their Lume-On lights; the same product that was awarded at Seawork International 18 months ago.
Spinlock's CEO Chris Hill said: "We are always thrilled to receive recognition for our innovative products. We actively campaign about the importance of individuals taking personal responsibility for their safety at sea by understanding more about their own lifejacket, and part of this is ensuring you can be seen should you fall overboard thanks to our range of lifejacket lights."
Spinlock's Doug Vincett explained the innovative product in further detail: "Visibility is key for any man overboard (MOB) situation and when we launched the Lume-On we saw it as a simple but ground-breaking step forward in lifejacket safety. The water activated LED lights are designed to be easy and cost effective to fit, yet hugely effective. They will transform any standard lifejacket bladder into a large flashing beacon."
The device uses the large inflated and fluorescent-coloured lifejacket bladder as a light diffuser, so allowing a relatively small and low powered light source to offer enhanced visibility from a small light source with excellent battery life.
In celebration of the achievement, Spinlock donated £1000 to Seafarers UK. Spinlock CEO Chris Hill explained: "Unfortunately we were unable to attend the awards ceremony, but pledged if we were successful to make this donation to support the important work of this charity. Seafarers UK, who are celebrating their centenary this year, are a charity close to the heart of the industry as they continue to support the past, present and future of seafaring."
