The DESCO Air Hat was designed in 1968 and has continually evolved to meet the requirements of the commercial diving industry. Major upgrades to the design of the Air Hat over the years were made so they could be retrofitted to older helmets, thus increasing their service life. The design of the Air Hat maximizes safety, durability, and reliability while requiring simple routine maintenance and care.
The air hat conforms to all current regulations of the ADC Consensus Standards, and the U.S. Federal Regulations administered by O.S.H.A. and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Air Hat has been awarded certification by the European Community for use in EC member countries and carries the CE number stamped on the tail.
The DESCO is a “free flow” helmet of contemporary design, using time proven techniques and materials in its construction, similar to the heavy gear helmets of the past. Brass casting are deep soldered to a 1/16″ thick spun copper shell. It can be disassembled and reassembled using only a screwdriver and a wrench.
It is the preferred helmet for working in hazardous environments where contamination of the diver is a concern. The “free flow” or “overpressure” design allows for a constant positive pressure to be maintained in the Air Hat. The standard double exhaust incorporates two separate successive seals to restrict the possibility of leak back.
