Noah''s liferaft / survival equipment

Noah''s liferaft
Noah''s liferaft

The safety issue of Life raft is becoming more and more important along with the frequency and intensity of shipwreck.
Noah's liferaft is designed with the principles of the tumblers. The center of it is an expansion suspender with a lead bricks hung on the bottom.
For preventing the capsize issue of life raft caused by storms and ocean surges (e.g. typhoon and hurricanes), the expansion suspender can elongate to ensure the stability of life raft by lowering the center of gravity below the water.
