Safety & Testing

Safety – It’s in our name for a reason

From the very beginning, safety was of the utmost concern in designing the BoatSafe® heater. Ignition protection and thermodynamically safe and efficient heating is the design backbone of every bilge heater we have ever made. We have set the industry standard in safety for you and your boat. Boaters have trusted us since 1990, and no one else can make that claim.

Our bilge heaters have also been subjected to rigorous testing by the respected IMANNA lab in Rockledge, Florida and received the following certifications: ABYC:E11, ISO:8846, SAE:J1171, USCG Ignition Protection Standards, CE. Additionally, the casing is made with RoHS compliant materials. BoatSafe, Inc is an integral part of the marine and safety industries for your protection and confidence.

Testing for Function

All BoatSafe® heaters can be tested to insure they are working properly. Almost every bilge heater we have built can be tested using freeze spray 1,2. Beginning with the 2011 model year, all bilge heaters can be tested using either freeze spray or the push to test feature. Testing should be performed at least biannually and especially at the start of your cold season.
