Dacon Rescue Frame

One of our most popular recovery devices is the Dacon Rescue Frame. This is a manual rescue net that is formed into a cradle, to save a distressed person from the water in a safe and easy way.

The Rescue Frame has several advantages that makes it the ideal choice for professionals in the maritime industry:

  • Extremely durable and robust
  • Safe, horizontal recovery
  • Has been used for over 40 years in the maritime industry
  • Life long expectancy
  • Requires minimum space
  • Intuitive and easy to use

How the Rescue Cradle Works

When deployed, the Rescue Frame hangs down on the vessel’s side, forming a cradle in the water. The floating person is positioned horizontally in the cradle and gently brought on board by the crew pulling the rescue frame or retrieval lines.

The horizontal position of the casualty ensures full body support to avoid any further injury. This method of recovery ensures that both the crew and the person in the water stays safe during the rescue operation. The Rescue Frame is attached to the boat`s railing, which makes it easy for the crew to form the correct shape.

Design and Material 

Dacon Rescue Frame is designed particularly to withstand extreme weather conditions and to last for years. The outer bar is equipped with pebble buoys, a maneuvering stick and hand-loops to hold on to.

The rescue net is lightweight yet compact, which makes it very durable and easy to handle. The net takes up very little deck space when rolled up and stored.

Just like our other MOB rescue net products, the Rescue Frame is approved by DNV GL, which is the world’s leading classification within the maritime industry.

The recovery device is being used on many different types of vessels around the world, such as MOB boats, SAR boats and rescue crafts.
