InnovativeMarineMaterial / Water rescue product


Water rescue becomes ecological.
Unlike competing products, I.m.m.safe is made of certified veneer, bio-epoxy resin and wood foam. The innovative use of the materials makes it ecological, reparable and recyclable. In addition, it is light and captivates with its extraordinary wood look. The functions and the design are optimized for rescue and use on boats. To be able to use it intuitively, the product is symmetrical. It also has a support surface for the head of the person in distress and handles for a firm grip. The product brand „Innovative marine material“ reflects the characteristics of the water rescue product.
