Drysuits, chest waders and cast covers at the Emergency Services Show 2016

Hammond understand the importance of the requirement to stay dry in a water rescue situation in order for the rescuer to maintain focus and attention. They are preparing to showcase their range of drysuits, chest waders and cast covers on stand C86 at the upcoming Emergency Services Show Birmingham, 21 to 22 September 2016.  

Visitors to stand C86 will be able to talk to Hammond about how to stay dry in a rescue situation by wearing their specific range of Chest Waders and Search and Rescue Drysuits. They will also be able to discuss the options for keeping limb injuries dry with the custom made cast covers available for broken limbs. The products on display are currently worn by a number of fire and rescue services, police services and the Environment Agency across the United Kingdom. The suits can be made-to-measure for ultimate comfort or are available in standard sizes for larger commercial orders. 

The SR140R, SR4B and Chest Waders are made of robust hard wearing material, all seams are single stitched and hand tapered for a longer lasting watertight seam, and the seat, knee and shin areas include a double layer of material to aid longevity of the suit. The suits are designed for the ultimate comfort and fit.

“All our drysuits are made in our purpose built facility in Dartford, Kent where attention to detail and customer service are our main priority. Every suit is made by a trained technician and tested to the high standards we set ourselves, in order to make the best possible suit for every individual customer.” Explains Chris Hammond managing director at Hammond.

Our cast covers are made from the same strong robust hard wearing material our drysuits and chest waders. They are made to order, and cover the specific part of the leg or arm which needs to remain dry. Whether it be the leg, ankle, wrist, arm or elbow, Hammond will manufacture a cast cover to order enabling the wearer to continue with daily tasks around water as much as possible. Swimming, bathing, water rescue situations are now possible with cast covers from Hammond.

In addition to manufacturing new suits, Hammond carry out service and repair work on all types of drysuits and immersion suits as well as being able to certify them for insurance purposes. To support their drysuit range they also sell a range of Gill and Fourth Element products.

Hammond look forward to welcoming you to stand C86 at the Emergency Services Show 2016 to discuss your specific requirements about keeping dry in a rescue situation.
