General questions about lifejackets
How do I wash my product from Baltic?
Baltic products should be hand washed in lukewarm water with a mild detergent.
What is the recommended lifespan on a Baltic product?
The recommended lifespan on lifejackets from Baltic is ten years. However, if you regularly control your lifejacket and take care of it, it will last for more than ten years. If you are unsure, test your lifejacket under controlled conditions in an environment where you feel safe without a lifejacket. You can also contact us at Baltic and we will help you make a statement.
Can I find out how old my lifejacket is?
Inside your lifejacket is a label with a model number, the first four digits of the model number indicate the year and month of manufacture. For example, 2112xxxx shows that your lifejacket is made in 2021 in December.
What about the warranty?
We provide a five (5) year warranty on our safety products with the exception of floating clothing which has a warranty period of two (2) years. We provide a two-year guarantee on other clothing. The guarantee only applies to material or production defects. The warranty only covers the repair of the product, or exchange for a new equivalent product. The guarantee presupposes that the product has only been used for private use, has not been exposed to an accident and that normal care has been applied and the instructions for use have been followed. If there is anything else that deviates from your order, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The weight indication on the lifejacket is too little / too much but the size suits me best, can I choose this lifejacket?
The most important thing is that the lifejacket has a good fit, so do not only look at the weight indication on the lifejacket. The weight indication is more of a size division than the recommended weight. Even if you weigh more than the weight indication indicates, you will float by a good margin. Are you still unsure? Contact us at email@example.com.
