Lifebuoy Rings are one of life-saving equipment that is dropped in the water to rescue someone that went overboard accidentally.
A lifebuoy ring is a distressed orange-colored, doughnut-shaped polyethylene tube thrown in the water to save a person from drowning. It is made up of inherently bind material that stays afloat and does not sink to the bottom.
Lifebuoy rings are automatically inflatable that makes them ideal for rescuing purposes. They have a good length of rope attached at the throwing end and a fine quality grip at the circumference of the lifebuoy ring.
Lifebuoy rings come in various sizes for children and adults. One can easily pick what is right under what circumstances. They usually come in orange color with reflecting tapes at four equidistant points on the ring. So, they are easily seen in the water.
Lifebuoy rings are mounted at ships and places that are more likely to have casualties from drowning accidents. They are stored at points that are accessible under emergencies. Lifebuoy rings are easy to use; they weigh about 2.5kg to 6kg that makes them easily throwable.
