Water Lily / life jacket

Water Lily
Water Lily

Aimed at improving the survival rate of victims, “Water Lily” is a facility for calling the attention of the rescue crews. Comprised in the life jacket at normal time, “Water Lily” can extend enormously when emergency occurs.
When a ship is wrecked, it is urgent to locate the survivors in the sea. Shaped like water lily and made of light textile materials, “Water Lily” extends a dozen of times of the life jacket surface. The foam floating balls around the rotundity guarantee that “Water Lily” is always in a perfect shape. Besides, the reflective material on the outer surface makes it easier for the aircraft to detect at night.
