No fear in Arctic [DSEI15, D1]

15 September 2015

The Arctic 25 hypothermia protective suit of US company White Glacier (Stand S10‑186) can be tried out at DSEI, where visitors can immerse themselves in an incredible ice-water tank exhibition.

The suit is said to be setting new standards when it comes to maritime safety and hypothermia protection.

Through a patented combination of non-neoprene cutting-edge materials, the Arctic 25 protects survivors from freezing temperatures, dangerously cold water, frigid Arctic wind, and the effects of hypothermia for more than 25 hours without the need for constant manual adjustment or inflation. "We are here to educate the public about the dangers of hypothermia and we take pride in our suit, the only product of its kind and one that will save the lives of many," said CEO Diego Jacobson.

The new product, which meets and exceeds the requirements for immersion suits of SOLAS, LSA, MSC 81(70), and IMO, is now available for pre-order, with deliveries due to start in the first quarter of 2016.
