The GIST system, with its patented torsion operation, was developed by Leafield Marine to provide a compact and cost effective system. By integrating the hose and inlet valve designs, further savings in weight and fitting time have been achieved.

This system is widely used in the leisure liferaft market due to its small size and is also used on the largest SOLAS life rafts due to its high flow and ruggedness. There are currently over 100,000 systems in use worldwide.

Due to the safety critical nature of this product and number of variants available, we suggest that you contact Leafield Marine directly to discuss your particular requirement.
