VIKING™ DIVERS DRESS

The VIKING™ DIVERS DRESS is based on the VIKING™ HD, and is manufactured with a touch of nostalgia for those divers who continue to dive using traditional helmets like the Siebe Gorman 12 bolt. Built to replace the old canvas coated rubber suits, in a style more suited to 21st century demands for diving in water which may be contaminated.

  • Internal stitched and taped seams
  • External vulcanised seams
  • Easy to clean exterior when contaminated
  • Easy to repair in the field to minimise downtime
  • Flexible and comfortable

COLOUR

Red with black reinforcements, or all black.

SEAMS

Internal seams stitched together with an elastic tape for security. External seams vulcanised with a 25 mm rubber tape. Vulcanising is a chemical bonding process, ensuiring watertight seams.

REINFORCEMENTS

Additional layers of  anti slip textured rubber are applied to areas at risk of wear. The front of the legs from above the knee, down to the boots, and around the boots are also protected from abrasion and puncturing.

ZIPPER

None fitted. Entry is through the shoulder and collar.

VALVES

Not required. All air related functions are handled through helmet controls.

BOOTS

The standard boots are an extension of the leg, and formed over a metal foot former to provide the shape. Additional layers of textured rubber are added for durability. There is no additional outsole fitted to the DIVERS DRESS boots in order that they may be used in conjunction with heavy overboots.

Alternative Options:
Nitrile safety boots with steel toe cap & midsole, PVC non safety boots.

RUBBER COLLAR

The chosen rubber collar is first of all mounted onto the DIVERS DRESS material, and then attached to the suit by stitching, taping and eventual vulcanisation. A drip collar made from soft material is also mounted inside the rubber collar.

CUFFS 

Latex HD cuffs are fitted as standard.

Glove ring options:
In order to make the suit completely waterproof, it is possible to fit a rubber cuff ring system with fixed external rubber ring, and loose stiff plastic ring which holds the latex seal in place.

This system allows for the use of latex or rubber mittens or latex gloves.
