Markus SCN6-500 Scramble Net
The Markus SCN6-500 Scramble net is designed to retrieve a MOB, either by enabling a conscious MOB to climb aboard, or an unconscious MOB to be rolled par buckle onboard in the SOLAS preferred horizontal position.
The SCN6 is 6 rungs wide or (4ft) which is considered the minimum width for lifting a person in the horizontal position. This net is 5 meters long and would be suitable for a freeboard fixing length of no more than 3.5-4m
The Markus Scramble net is much more lightweight and can be easily transported side to side of a vessel by one crewmember unlike other nets on the market.
Markus Scramble nets adhere to the new SOLAS standard (III/-17) for the retrieval of persons in the water. This standard will soon affect most operations; SOLAS vessels, passenger vessels, commercial vessels carrying more than 12 persons, and including FRCs (Fast Rescue Craft).
Each net must extend into the water by 1 to 1.5 meters in order to be effective and meet the new SOLAS standards for retrieval of persons in the water.
