In the SOLAS Convention and other maritime related standards, the safety of human life is paramount. Ships and other watercraft carry life saving appliances including lifeboats, lifebuoys, life-jackets, life raft and many others. Passengers and crew are informed of their availability in case of emergency. Life-saving appliances are mandatory as per chapter 3 of the SOLAS Convention. The International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Codegives specific technical requirements for the manufacture, maintenance and record keeping of life-saving appliances. The number and type of life-saving appliances differ from vessel to vessel, and the code gives a minimum requirement to comply in order to make a ship seaworthy.

Fire Screen Doors
Fire Screen Doors are part of passive fire protection systems onboard ships. Used to insulate areas where a fire has developed, they have local and centralized automatic closing systems. Fire Screen Doors must have special structural characteristics and keep them over time; the correct connection between frame and ship structure is also paramount.
The mechanical and thermal stresses to be sustained require accurate design and performance verification, not to be compromised, requires exact procedures, highly skilled personnel at installation, and periodical audits. Strict international regulations regulate the performances to guarantee in emergencies; panic-tilting-bar, push-bar or touch-bar type, hinges, and access management control devices must comply with strict safety standards.
Ensuring the safety level of fire protection devices during the ship operational life requires: Quick delivery times, even if only for a single unit, availability of spare parts, logistics and trained and qualified personnel.
