  • The transmitter and receiver units are each supplied in a protective case.

The receiver case is fitted with neck and waist straps to allow hands free use, ensuring the safety of the surveyor when moving around the vessel.
The transmitter case is also fitted with a shoulder strap for convenience and safety.

  • Hatch Sure allows a rapid and thorough test of hatch cover tightness.

It may also be used for testing cargo access areas such as bow, side and stern doors or any opening that needs to be sealed.

Inspections can be carried out with the cargo in place and the testing does not interfere with other crew activities.
