Floatation Collar

The Flotation collar is the perfect way to add FAA-approved flotation to your over-water lifting operations. The Yoke-style Flotation Collar design incorporates lacing flaps and Velcro covers for attachment of the collar. After initial attachment, the collar becomes an extension of the harness for all over-water applications. Likewise, it can be removed from the harness when not required and be worn alone as a personal life preserver.

Ideal for Helicopter operators performing Human External Cargo operations, such as:

  • High-tension electric line inspection and maintenance
  • Helicopter-aided construction
  • Wind Farm maintenance
  • Search and Rescue
  • Firefighting and Police

FAA Approved for life & harnesses

The Flotation Collar is FAA TSO-C13d approved and can integrate with any of the popular commercially available harnesses with over-the-shoulder straps. This eliminates the bulk and interference of putting a life vest on over top of your harness.
