At Water Weights we’ve developed systems specifically to apply a test load to life saving appliances. WATER WEIGHTS® Lifeboat test bags and proof load bags provide controlled loading and unloading with minimal handling, resulting in minimum downtime.

Our lifeboat system provides a safe, fast, simple and accurate way of proof load testing, with no need for personnel to be in the craft. Loading is achieved with a control manifold and pumping system, and measured by calibrated flowmeter.
