Inherent foam lifejackets with the buoyancy concentrated to the front and to the collar. To help a person turn over to a safe back position. Suitable for swimmers and non swimmers.
*All lifejackets and buoyancy aids for sale in the EU must be CE-marked. The CE mark shows that the product is tested and approved to EU standards. These standards divide the products into different Newton classes. Each Newton class is a European standard with its own designated number, e.g. EN393.
Newton is the unit for force and the abbreviation for it is N. An adult needs 20-30N of buoyancy to float, with or without clothing. A 50N buoyancy aid will therefore keep you afloat with a great safety margin. However if you wish to be turned over in the water, you will need a greater force, i.e. more Newtons.
