Market leaders in lifejacket Inflation

GBD has worked with UML for over 20 years developing the what has become the preferred brand in lifejacket inflators the world over. Creating rock-solid performance in a highly regulated market.

Getting to Grips with the Problem

The UML range of inflation products is used by the majority of lifejacket manufacturers in Europe, Scandinavia, Australia and the Far East. The various assemblies are rigorously tested and independently approved in accordance with the ISO Component Standard for lifejackets. Only top quality raw materials are used in their construction and all of the manufacturing and testing procedures are embodied in British Standards quality systems.

Developing the Design

From the initial product development concept through to final delivery to our customers, rigid Quality Assurance procedures are followed. The main body of the Inflation System is 100% function tested using automated testing equipment to ensure you can depend on the products and a percentage of finished products are test fired to ensure the optimum performance is maintained.

Finding a Solution

A strong commitment to R&D, design and new product development ensure that the range always remains ahead in terms of performance, innovation and cost.
