JOK Diver Recovery Harnesses gifted to The Underwater Centre

09/23/2013

We are delighted to announce that we have agreed to donate a number of CE-approved JOK Diver Recovery Harnesses to The Underwater Centre in Fort William to aid divers' education and competence, ensuring their training experience is as practically accurate and realistic as possible.

The JOK Diver Recovery Harness was designed with the intention of producing a high quality product which could compete as a leader in its field. Essential to any diving rescue situation, the harness is required to hold the weight of a fully kitted diver, which can be up to 150kg. Vigorous testing methods certified by Life Support Engineering (LSE) included load tests of up to 900kg, which the JOK Harness successfully completed with no damage to the stitching or webbing.

James Ridgeway, The Underwater Centre's Training Operations Manager, said the Centre was extremely grateful for the donation.

"At The Underwater Centre, we are constantly striving to be at forefront of health and safety and this latest product from C-Tecnics will help us to do so.

We are grateful to the team at C-Tecnics for kindly giving us this top of the range product, and we very much look forward to trialling it with our commercial diving students."
