The ITW Nexus Aqua Marine Safety Whistle (MW2) is an improved design of the famous military manufacturer’s traditional marine whistle. This ergonomically designed safety whistle produces a dual tone, high pitched sound that can reach over 100 decibels at an average decibel level of 106 dB(A). The whistle features a finger grip area that makes it easy to hold.
The orange whistle is easy to spot and floats in the water. It comes with a hole for a lanyard and a clip to attach it bags and clothing. Constructed of polypropylene, the whistle is light and will not corrode.
This whistle meets stringent USCG/SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea), CE EN394 (European Commission) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 12402-8 safety standards. ISO 12402-8 specifies the safety requirements and test methods for accessories used for personal flotation devices. The United States Coast Guard requires vessels to carry an efficient sound signal like the Aqua Marine whistle to signal their intentions and position in periods of reduced visibility.
It is much louder than a conventional ball whistle. It is ideal for use in emergency situations. Whistles should be part of every survival kit and attached to all life jackets or survival suits. These whistles could easily be attached to backpacks and bailout bags.
Sound can be a primary factor in finding a person in distress. Shouting has limited effectiveness and will leave a person hoarse in a short time. The Aqua Marine whistle is easy to blow and can be use over a long period.
This is a valuable survival and personal protection accessory that should be carried by every boater, hiker, hunter and outdoor enthusiast. Sold in packages of five (5) whistles. Free shipping in the United States via USPS.
