PFD (Personal Flotation Device) Level 150, is one that complies with the requirements of the Australian Standards approval code 4758-150. To comply with these standards the garment must be suitable for use in offshore applications and provide a high level of buoyancy, maintaining the wearer in a safe floating position, i.e. with the body inclined backwards from the vertical with the nose and mouth clear of the water. Although similar in functionality the Level 100 PFD is generally recommended for use in pleasure boats which may occasionally venture beyond sheltered waters or where the wearer may be at risk of sustaining injuries which may impede the wearer’s ability to swim. Some State Authorities require these jackets to be worn in certain situations or by determined age. Ensure to consult your State Authority for full details and requirements.
