Safety Information – Hammar inflator A1

Fake top labels on the Hammar inflator A1 for Inflatable lifejackets have been discovered on the market.

It has recently come to our attention that someone has removed and replaced the original top label on Hammar inflators A1. The fake label has an additional five years life to extend the expiry date.

The inflator is a vital part of the inflatable lifejacket and it is of great importance that it operates correctly. The Hammar inflator cap requires no service for five years. CM Hammar guarantees functionality and performance of the inflator during these years. After five years is has to be replaced. Extending the life further have negative effects on the performance of the inflator and increase the risk of delayed or non activation.

CM Hammar´s highest priority is the users’ safety at sea, therefore we kindly ask for your attention in this matter.

Please spread this important information to all service stations!
