Hammond return to Emergency Services Show in 2017

Hammond is returning to the Emergency Services Show with our search and rescue range of drysuits at the NEC Birmingham on 20 and 21 September 2017. 

Comfort and safety are paramount in a rescue situation and at Hammond our drysuits, for use in a water rescue situation, are designed with this in mind. Hammond manufacture a bespoke range of made-2-measure drysuits for ultimate comfort alongside the standard range which are all handmade in the UK.

“We take pride in every drysuit we make,” comments Chris Hammond, Managing Director at Hammond Drysuits. “Our meticulous approach means that every drysuit made by our team goes through a thorough manufacturing process, quality control and pressure testing of all the seals and seams. Once this process has been successfully passed the drysuits can then be dispatched.”

All seams on Hammond drysuits are stitched and hand taped for a longer lasting watertight barrier. The suits have a second layer of Cordura fabric over the seat, knee and shin areas, this added layer helps protect the suit and the wearer to reduce the impact should any sharp objects try to penetrate through. Further, as standard Hammond prefer the stronger 8bdm (8 teeth per inch) neoprene coated metal dry zip, an elasticated rear waist, and a suit bag to keep the suit protected when not being worn.

Optional extras include replacing the latex seals with neoprene ones for added comfort. The latex socks can be replaced with Bekina Steplight X Safety Boots. To further customise the drysuits, they can be branded with the appropriate corporate logos and individual names, and reflective stripes to increase visibility.

On stand E38 discover more about the different ranges of drysuits available in terms of breathability and durability. Our experienced team will be on hand to show you the search and rescue drysuits SR140 and SR4B, and chest waders available.

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 our drysuit range we also sell a range of Gill and Fourth Element products.
