Parachute lifting bags

The JW Automarine parachute-type lifting bags represent the most versatile and generally useful of all underwater lifting bags.

A great deal of research and creative design has been applied to the evolution and production of the minor and professional ranges of parachute-type underwater lifting bags.

Fabricated from high tenacity polyester Trevira cloth coated with PVC, the outwardly simple shape of our parachute lifting bags optimises the advantages of maximum strength and single-point attachment for ease of deployment and stable performance.
