Checking and servicing your inflatable Dan buoy or lifebuoy : 
To ensure that your inflatable Dan buoy or lifebuoy is fully operational when needed, we strongly recommend that you check them and have them serviced at regular intervals.

•        Before putting off to sea, you can easily inspect their general condition visually, by checking the main components (container, inflatable chamber, retro-reflecting tapes, CO2 gas cylinder -check that the cylinder is tightly screwed -, firing head, safety light -check the date of the light -). Replace the re-arming kit if necessary. 

•        We recommend that your Dan buoy and lifebuoys should be serviced at regular intervals. A complete servicing session includes checking the inflation system and the airtightness of the chamber. 
Plastimo advises you to keep one spare kit for each Dan buoy and lifebuoy on board.
