Free Fall Life Boat Bags

Proofload has desinged a special waterbag to be used for the dynamic and static loadtesting of Free Fall Life Boats. The waterbags have a capacity of 90kg when filled and are being strapped individually into every seat inside the life boat. Due to the strength of the waterbag material, large impacts can be absorbed into the bags so there will be no risks of damages or water leakage.

Gangway Test Bags

Load tests of Gangway and Accomodation ladders can be performed by using Proofload's Gangway Test Bag Systems. These bags have been specially designed to simulate the weight of 75 kg on each step. The inclination of these gangways are sometimes set to 55 degrees to the horizontal, and than loaded with our special gangway bags. Due to the risk and dangers of performing these load tests, the Engineer is always strapped onto the railing of the vessel with an safety harness, and one engineer is operating the water control manifold.
