Upon release from its stowage arrangement, this type of liferaft either slides automatically or it thrown overboard manually. Once waterborne, the liferaft inflates by a firm pull to the painter line.
Throw overboard liferafts are mainly used on commercial vessel, passenger ships or offshore assets. The liferaft is stowed in a rigid fibreglass container and approved by DNV in accordance with SOLAS/MED requirements and relevant flag state approvals.
