The Hammar H20 is the most reliable hydrostatic release unit on the market and is used by leading EPIRB manufactures. Аctivation of the EPIRB with the help of Hammar H20 will dramatically facilitate the rescue operation in emergency situations at sea. It is activated by water pressure and automatically releases the EPIRB in case the vessel sinks. Ones the EPIRB reaches the surface, it starts to emit a signal of identification and position to a satellite. Instead of the rope sling, a specially developed plastic bolt secures the radio beacon and will be cut when the unit is activated.
Hammar H20 is made of nylon reinforced glass fiber and is not prone to corrosion and temperature changes. The term of operation is 2 years and when it comes to an end, you simply install a new hydrostatic release unit, disposing of the old one. It also enables easy, quick and trouble free installation.
It fulfills the requirements of the SOLAS 74/96 Convention, Reg. III/4 LSA Code, IMO Res. MSC. 48 (66), 81 (70), and is approved by EU Directive 96/98 EC on Marine Equipment and has a NATO stock number.
