Ring buoys are a great tool for rescues and can go places rescuer cannot. Lifeguard Master now offers a new line of six different ring buoys and 2 different throw lines.

Ring buoys or lifebuoys are often used in pools, boats, and in large bodies of water. A ring buoy can be easily thrown with the person out of the water holding the nylon rope connected to the ring buoy. From there someone can be drawn back to safety and stay afloat. Because ring buoys rely so much on strength, it is important to have an United States Coast Guard approved item that is made with quality and made to last. Now Lifeguard Master, the lifeguard supply store, has a new line of ring buoys and throw lines that are all approved by the United States Coast Guard.

Lifeguard Master offers two bright orange ring buoys. One is 20-inches wide and the other 24-inches wide. The 24 inch orange ring buoy is the most popular and used by professionals around the world. Both are approved by the United States Coast Guard and are classified as a Personal Floatation Device Type IV. Made of a solid closed cell foam material throughout the ring, these buoys are soft and resilient to the touch, while at the same time tough and durable on the inside. The material resists weather and temperature extremes while not rotting or mildewing. Although the 20-inch ring buoy is available, the 24-inch ring buoy is most commonly used because of the variety of victim ages and sizes it can be used for.

Ring buoys can be easily tossed to the victim and can go places lifeguards cannot reach. Excellent for pools, boats, or even on the side of a riverfront, ring buoys are a great tool to have around and easy to use.

Throw lines do not usually come with ring buoys and must be obtained or purchased separately. Lifeguard Master offers two throwing ropes in their line. The first is the white throw line which measures 60 feet and comes with a wall hook. The 1/4-inch thickness makes the line easy to throw and thick enough to serve as a heaving line. The second throwing rope has a yellow line and is also 1/4-inch thick and 60 feet long. A perfect accessory to ring buoys, the rope is easy to see and is light enough to throw yet durable enough to heave someone into safety.
