UHF Handheld Firefighter Radio for SOLAS Chapter 11-2, Regulation 10.10.4
SmartFind R8F UHF FireFighter Radio
SOLAS Mandated Equipment – McMurdo’s first marine approved two-way radio made specifically for firefighting communications.
The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), adopted the following amendment to SOLAS regulation II-2/10 regarding firefighters’ communication: “For ships constructed on or after 1 July 2014, a minimum of two two-way portable radiotelephone apparatus for each fire party for firefighter's communication shall be carried on board. Those two-way portable radiotelephone apparatus shall be of an explosion-proof type or intrinsically safe. Ships constructed before 1 July 2014 shall comply with the requirements of this paragraph not later than the first survey after 1 July 2018."
The rugged McMurdo SmartFind R8F UHF FireFighter Radio is an intrinsically safe two-way radio that meets new SOLAS II-2 mandated regulations for improved fire safety at sea.
It has everything an emergency team needs in a radio, from enhanced grip and large tactile buttons for easy and fast operation in an emergency situation, to a powerful in-built loud speaker and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) for optimised indoor use. Bright red and for emergency use only, SmartFind R8F is a reliable and hardwearing radio that will support firefighters at sea during potentially life-threatening situations.
It is imperative that emergency teams can rely on the very best equipment and this is exactly what they’ll get with the McMurdo SmartFind R8F.
A fire won’t wait, you shouldn’t either. Ensure the safety of your crew and vessel with McMurdo, the Most Trusted Name in Emergency Readiness and Response.
Compatible with all SAVOX and Peltor firefighter radio equipment (headsets, helmets etc.)
With the expected role out of MED requirements for EU vessels under the fire radio mandate, McMurdo’s R8F offers investment assurance, as it is already built to MED standards.
