«SeaWind» breaks new barriers

The Hansen Protection «SeaWind» immersion suit breaks new barriers with its many fields of application. Never before has a survival suit achieved such a wide range of certification, with approvals from SOLAS, ISO and EASA.

Hansen Protection develops, designs and manufactrues both standard an tailor-made hi-tech textile products for various sectors. 

SeaWind from Hansen protectionTriple Certification

Hansen Protection has for a long time been working to be able to be the first to offer a survival suit that is approved for work, shipping and helicopter transport. To achieve the helicopter transport approval the suit has had to be fitted with a lining, and it has to be worn with a SeaLion Europe lifejacket.

SeaWind has been certified by SOLAS, ISO and EASA. This means it has been approved for most demanding work situations.

Emergency Breathing System

The SeaAir EBS Emergency Breathing System is integrated in the SeaLion Europe lifejacket. This system makes it possible to start the breathing under water, which was not possible with previous systems. In addition, the suit is equipped with a floating buddy line hook, a feature unique to Hansen Protection. 

Good ventilation

SeaWind is designed for optimal ergonomics and meets the needs of discerning workers so they can move freely without restrictions around their knees or seat. The suit weighs less than 2 kg and is a dry suit. Waterproof zips under the arms provide good ventilation for active workers. In addition, both the hood and gloves can be placed in convenient pockets when working.

“Users will find that it is possible to have the suit on for long periods without discomfort. We find that workers want to have maximum flexibility and take responsibility for closing the suit”, says Product Manager Knut Åsle.
