Life Raft Components

NMG has been a leading provider of safe, reliable aircraft life raft components to the aerospace industry for over 30 years.

Dependable Aircraft Life Raft Components

In the event of an unplanned water landing or other emergency situation, life rafts are vital to the safety and wellbeing of everyone on board the aircraft. From the hose to the inflation valve to the gauge, every component of the life raft system must operate exactly as designed for the life raft to inflate quickly, safely, and at the appropriate time. NMG has decades of experience manufacturing reliable components for integration into aircraft life raft systems. With our highly versatile engineering, design, and manufacturing capabilities, we can promise precision and quality on every component, every time.

Life Raft Components

Inflation Valves

The role of the inflation valve is to direct and manage airflow into an inflatable life raft, with specialized components preventing damage caused by excess pressure.


While gas from a storage cylinder plays a vital role in expediting the inflation process, ambient air collected by aspirators is also utilized to ensure complete inflation.


Pressure gauges allow life raft operators to view real-time data on the inflation process and monitor the system for excess pressure.


Life raft hoses direct air, at extremely high pressures, into the inflating life raft, often in harsh conditions, immediately after many months spent in cramped storage.

Pressure Regulators

Pressure regulators ensure efficient inflation of life rafts by maintaining a steady, manageable flow of gas into the inflating device.

The NMG Quality Difference

Quality and performance are nonnegotiable when it comes to aircraft safety systems. NMG has been manufacturing life raft components for over 30 years, and our rigorous quality assessment practices are designed to ensure precision at every stage. From designing the manufacturing process to post-production testing, NMG is focused on precision, consistency, and quality.
