Your most valuable tool for water rescue.

EDDE Universal is the latest and best in our general use rescue flotation lines. EDDE Universal is designed for use by members of the public and rescue professionals alike. EDDE replaces all existing water's edge rescue systems. The size of a standard throw line but with the buoyancy of a life ring and rope length of up to 25 metres, EDDE Universal is your best option.

Weighing less than 1.5Kg enables more accurate and longer throwing distances to be achieved by everyone compared to what is achieved with life rings, with the added benefit of a self-inflating support system deploying in less than 7 seconds.

EDDE Universal is ideal for any area near water, whether that's a pond, lake, river or the ocean. EDDE Universal is a big floatation system in a small package.

EDDE Universal is fast and easy to deploy.
