Within this shop, there are smaller specialized work areas and lots of room for the inflation and testing of life rafts and floats. At any given time, there are a set of floats or a life raft fully inflated and being inspected or tested for a customer. After inspection and testing, the equipment is carefully packed away into their casings. Inflation systems and fire extinguishers are inspected, tested, calibrated, and filled in a separate room with specialized equipment. The shop also manufactures equipment. This is done by a specialist who provides textiles and materials support. She provides repair services for rescue equipment components such as straps, coverings, kits, and bags. In addition, she works with Design Engineers to develop custom products such as seat coverings, storage systems, and nets.
