Hammond Drysuits launches 24-hour repair service
Wear and tear fixed before you can say ‘trickle’
Suit maker Hammond Drysuits is introducing two new fast-track options for its repair service.
It’s true that we live in a ‘want it now’ society nowadays, but more importantly, those canny craftsmen at Hammond have realised this year’s good weather is putting extra strain on the UK’s drysuits.
a speedy 24-hour turnaround time
They’re taking a double-beating from rocks on the seabed, rusty scrap protrusions, and the rest.
Hammond’s new ‘Gold Service’ option enables customers to fast-track their drysuit repairs, with a speedy 24-hour turnaround time.
If you’re in a hurry – but not quite as much of a hurry – Hammond also now offers a ‘Silver Service’.
Even the ‘Standard Service’ has a typical turnaround time of only five working days.
Repairs can include seal replacement for foot, neck and wrist seals – in both neoprene and latex – as well as replacement zips and seam repairs. Repairs are available for all brands of drysuit, although own-brand suits are fixed with a 10 per cent discount.
All repairs are undertaken at the company’s dedicated repair and manufacture facility based at Dartford, Kent.
We’re an island nation with an overabundance of commercial divers. Hammond Drysuits is also able to service, repair and certificate any brand of drysuit for corporate customers including wind farm supply chain companies, energy companies, emergency services and schools.
Seal replacements cost from £20.20, (inclusive of supply, fit and VAT). Gold Service repairs incur an additional 50 per cent of the cost of the repair; while Silver Service repairs incur a cost of 30 per cent of the price of the repair.
You can pop along and talk to staff from Hammond Drysuits at DIVE2013 at Birmingham’s NEC Birmingham on 26-27 October.
