IMO Compliant, MED Wheelmark Mattresses and Fire Retardant Bedding

Mon, 23 June 2014

We are pleased to announce that Ship Shape IMO who were exhibiting at the recent Seawork Exhibition are now members of the SSA. – Please join me in welcoming them.

Ship Shape IMO specialises in Wheelmarked Marine Mattress and Bedding for Work boats, Merchant Vessels, Supply Ships, Oil & Gas Platforms and other vessels.

Paul Hallatt their MD explains “The rules and regulations for ships at sea are enormously complex and varied depending on the ships flag, the location of operations, size of vessel and the nature of its work.  However all vessels now require Mattress and Bedding to have Fire Certifications to be compliant with international or regional legislation.” 

“In particular the IMO require that the SOLAS mattress standards are achieved for international ships and the MED require mattresses to have the Wheelmark on EU flag vessels. Other situations require a minimum of  Crib 5 or 7 certification and any vessel that may pass through US ports will require a US Coast Guard approval !”

Ship Shape IMOs approach is offer advice and a comprehensive range of Multi-Certificated Mattresses that comply with IMO, SOLAS, MED Wheelmark, USCG and Crib 5 or 7.  Meaning you can rest assured that you are covered for your current  or future area of operations.

Ship Shape IMO also supply a full range of Fire Retardant bedding which can also be custom made to specific sizes and needs.

Ship Shape IMO welcome contact from members whether it is just to discuss their needs and how the law effects them or to provide quotes or orders.  They deliver nationwide and internationally. Orders welcome from single to 1000’s of Units.
