Viking HD

FABRIC

The Viking HD material is a blend of natural and synthetic rubbers (NR/EPDM), on a two way stretch knitted polyester lining. Total material weight is 1550 +/- 100 g/m2.

COLOUR

Red with black reinforcements, or all black.

SEAMS

Internal seams are stitched together with an elastic tape for security. External seams are vulcanised with a 25 mm rubber tape. Vulcanization 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 shoulders and zipper are reinforced. The front of the legs from above the knee, down to the boots, and around the boots are also protected from abrasion and puncturing.

  • EN 14225-2:2005
  • BIO micro organism approval
  • HZ chemical approval

ZIPPER

90 cm magnetic heavy duty zipper is fitted to all red suits as standard.

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

NECKSEAL

The Viking HD is fitted with a Surveyor latex neck seal as standard.

Viking HD suits may be fitted with a wide range of hood options as follows:
Surveyor latex hood + thermal inner hood, Nautic neoprene hood with smooth face seal, Smoothskin hood, Turbo black rubber hood, Magnum black rubber hood.

YOKE OPTIONS

We offer a full range of rubber helmet yokes, available to fit all of the popular demand and freeflow helmets such as SL27/37/47 etc, AH3/5, Desco, Deepsea, Genesis, Gorsky and Dräger.

CUFFS 

Latex HD cuffs are the standard fitment.

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. The alternative is a plastic bayonet glove ring system with a plastic ring mounted on the sleeve, and a replaceable cuff held in place with a plastic ring.

Both systems then make the fitment of a latex or Viton®/Butyl or Nitrile/Chloroprene glove possible. Latex and rubber mittens are available for fitting to the rubber cuff ring system for heavy working conditions.
