DESCO is proud to be the exclusive representative for DEEPSEA Lightweight Diving Helmets in the Americas and Caribbean. For a DeepSea dealer outside the Americas contact Composite Beat Engel for a dealer near you.

 

Designed in cooperation with the Diving School of the Dutch Royal Engineers and three major Dutch diving/salvage companies the DEEPSEA Lightweight Diving Helmet is intended for use in diving with air or mixed gas.

 

The DEEPSEA Diving Helmet is designed on a modular principle with as many standard parts used as possible. It is planned for the helmet to accept most commercial demand regulators. At present the helmet has CE approval when fitted with the Scubapro Balanced Adjustable Demand Valve. CE certification is granted by The Institut National de la Plongée Professionelle in Marseille France. Testing and certification of new regulators by the INPP is ongoing.

 

The helmet shell is glassfibre laminate and comes in a gold color. The helmet weighs 27 lbs. and is neutrally buoyant. Lead counterweights are situated at various points to maximize diver comfort and reduce neck fatigue. The helmet has a top mounted handle which can accommodate a camera and/or light. The side block with its valves, the side block to demand regulator hose and the demand regulator are protected by fiberglass covers. These covers also direct exhaust air to the rear of the helmet.

 

The helmet can be used with a neck dam or dry suit. A chin strap is fitted to prevent the helmet shifting. To insure a good fit a selection of liners and a hood (snoopy) is provided.

 

The demand regulator is connected to the oral-nasal mask and is fitted with a nose clearing device activated by a knob on the window. Exhaled air exits through the exhaust valve. The helmet can be purged through an overpressure valve.

 

The side block has fittings for surface air, bailout air, and an inflator whip. It also provides a steady stream of air to the window for defogging.

 

The helmet can be fitted with different communications systems to be uniform with other equipment in a company's inventory. The shell is fitted with a watertight cable fitting. Provision for two speakers is provided.

 

The use of as many standard parts as possible in the helmet is intended to reduce costs and down time for maintenance or repair. Attention was paid to making the helmet as maintenance friendly as possible.

 

Basic Helmet Information:

The DSL B-2 helmet comes standard with double exhaust, double overpressure valves and a ScubaPro® Balanced/Adjustable Regulator.
 

Standard color is Gold. Other solid colors can be special ordered at no charge.
 

All DSL helmets include a neck dam, communications system, set of headliners, headliner hood (snoopy), spare parts kit, tools, manual and parts list.

 

The communications system is equipped with binding posts for two-wire communications, and a pigtail for four-wire communications.
