Hansen Protection vacuum packed and factory sealed immersion suits can save you up to 30% of normal service costs!

SOLAS regulations require suits 10 years old or more must be serviced more frequently. Frequent servicing means more service charges and more transport costs - not to mention your logistics challenges!

Hansen Protection offers factory vacuum packing for most of our emergency immersion suits. Vacuum packing extends the life of the suits, saves space and ensures suits are always in perfect condition and ready for use.
Based on manufacturers recommendations vacuum packing lowers the mandatory service interval, simplifying service logistics, lowering costs and increasing safety and security.  See our Instruction for inspection and service of vacuum packed immersion and abandonment suits here (Click here)
