Manufactured with tough Durapol™ polymer, Guardian Life Ring Cabinets are designed with features that deter thieves and vandals, while protecting the life-saving equipment inside from UV rays which can degrade its material over time.

In the event of an emergency in the water, access to a life preserver ring or other PFD with an attached floating throwing line is critical.

For increased visibility, Guardian Life Ring Cabinets are available in bright red and white or yellow and white to create an obvious contrast in color.

Designed for USCG Approved Ring Buoys

The size of life buoy ring you require may also depend on your own industry’s guidelines and regulations.

Guardian Life Ring Cabinets are available in two models to store the United States Coast Guard approved 24 inch and 30-inch diameter life rings.

Attractively molded to the shape of a ring buoy, these ring buoy cabinets can be securely mounted to a wall, railing or on to a post to create an easily recognizable ring buoy station.

These cabinets also offer the flexibility to store different types of throwable lifesaving devices and have been specially designed with a universal fit to house life rings or torpedo buoys made by different manufacturers.

Built-in Safety and Inspection Features


Guardian Ropemaster Quick Release Rope Management System

To increase the speed and ease of deploying the life preserver ring and rope, Glasdon life ring cabinets include the Ropemaster™ Quick Release Rope Management System as standard. The system accepts various diameters of rope up to 50 meters (164ft).

During install or when replacing the life ring, the rope is wound tightly around the central device guided by the molded-in rope and buoy retention tabs. The ring buoy is then placed over the retention tabs and pressed to sit compactly around the rope.

Guardian Life Ring Cabinet Inspection Indicator

On deployment, the built-in ‘grab handle’ recess allows the rope to be gripped with one hand and removed from the device in a neat loop, leaving the other hand free to take and throw the life preserver ring toward the victim.

Easy to understand, step-by-step instructions with images show the user how to remove the ring buoy and rope quickly.

Guardian Life Ring Cabinet Security Seal

Guardian Life Ring Cabinets also feature an inspection indicator built in to aid quick and easy inspection. The white indicator appears in the window when the cabinet door has been opened.

To further deter tampering and misuse, 10 security seals are supplied as standard. Once the life ring and rope are installed inside, a security seal is attached by the operator through the toggle latch. They break off when the cabinet door is opened.
