Life-Raft Recall - "BFA Marine"


* A brand of Zodiac International company

BFA marine has identified some overpressure valves failures on life rafts in use, which may lead to a complete deflation of the compartment when broken.

In the event both overpressure valves of the 2 independent compartments would happen to break, the life raft will not be functional anymore and be useless.

As a preventive measure, BFA marine urges its owners to bring back without delay their life raft to the nearest BFA approved service station, in order to check and potentially replace those overpressure valves.
