Arkangel Rescue Raft


Flood rescue platform, Portable rescue boat, Rapid deployment inflatable raft.

With ARKs vast inflatable boat experience and Queensland Fire & Rescue's vast flood rescue experience, the result is this ideal rescue boat, the Arkangel AA 420. Many designs and configurations were rigorously tested and the result is a finely tuned,versatile inflatable rescue boat.

Rescue demands many special features to deal with multiple scenarios, thus the addition of 14 well placed heavy duty multi-directional D-rings, and 10 carry handles, this rapid deployment inflatable has become standard operating equipment in many regions in Australia.

The Ark Angel can be manuevered into any scenario either by paddling or by roping it in using the array of precisely place strong attachment points.

The AR 420 can be launched in a matter of minutes by a single person. It is a small easily carried and stored package that inflates in minutes.

When the chips are down and the waters are high many people have welcomed the sight of this bright yellow saviour emerging from the mist.
