Today, I would like to introduce Nishi-F (

There exists English site also.


They are mainly doing business regarding small or middle size of marine ship.

Ships for shipping and rescue boats for large ship would be example.


Community shelter is one of the special products.

As you may know, there is risk of TSUNAMI ( tidal wave ) by earthquake.

The past disaster killed many people, and TSUNAMI should be the worst reason of the death.


Community shelter is the purpose of the life saving near the sea.

Some of kindergartens have introduce the shelters for students.


Below is the page of shelter introduction.



Below is the summary of the specification.

Size: 6.5 / 2.6 / 2.8 (L / W / H)

Capacity: 25 persons (assuming 82.5kg per person)

Configuration: 2 layers GFRP skins / porous urethane core

Term to survive: 7 days ( there are storage places for water / food )

* Bow of the shelter is designed to align to vertical direction against waves.


Shelters are manufactured by hand-layup.

Manufactured shelters will be checked by designated term, and be reworked / repaired as necessity.

Nishi-F is certified by MSC.1 / Circ. 1206 and 1207, to keep high quality process.


Light weight property of FRP is the key for floating.

At the same time, long life by advantage of anti-corrosion property is much more important for emergency use.

The products for emergent use should be maintenance free and use as is when it is necessary to use them.


Nobody knows when natural disaster is happened.

FRP should be precious material for emergency use products like above.


Nishi-F is one of the good candidates to achieve the goal.

< Editor’s Note > ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

This summer is pretty hot here in Japan.

Many people suffered heat disorder.


Fluid replacement is important keyword to avoid it.

Therefore, many of sports drinks were short of supply.


Of course, such treatment would be reasonable, but there exists another point.

There is Japanese tradition related to health.

Points are below;

– Eat well

– Sleep well

– Play well

I believe there are similar tradition all over the world.

Three points above should be the origin of human being.
