Propellor Injuries

Propeller injuries are unique and very complex. Rotating at a high speed and with a very powerful torque, when a propeller makes contact with a body it will result in multiple impacts of great force by the moving and advancing blades of the propeller. A typical three blade propeller running at 3,200 rpm can inflict 9,600 impacts in 1 minute or 160 impacts in 1 second. A 13 inch blade can travel from head to toe in an average person in less than one tenth of a second.

Boat propeller injuries, if not fatal, are usually severe and disfiguring resulting in prolonged disability and permanent impairment requiring costly medical, surgical and rehabilitative services.

The up-front investment in a Safe Marine NZ Ltd PropGuard is a small price to pay for peace of mind!
