Stowed in a rigid fiberglass container as per attached drawing. The standard GRP container is equipped with heating mats mounted on the inside of the container. This efficient heating system ensures that the liferaft inflates despite freezing temperatures. The heating mats are equipped with a limit switch and shuts off when the temperature inside the liferaft exceeds 30°C to prevent overheating. The heating mats are connected to a thermal control box mounted outside the container using waterproof connecters. When the temperature outside the liferaft rises above approx. 5°C, the thermal control box automatically deactivates the heating system to save power. As the heating system is not low voltage, an electrician will be needed to set up the box according to instructions and to connect the thermal control box to the ship’s alarm system, if desired.
