Board-Easy Deco-Stop new to NDAC

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Easy Board Deco Stop Ladder

Deco Stop Board EasyNew to the NDAC is the Board-Easy Deco-Stop

This product has been developed to help maintain correct depth following deep dives through visible measured stop points. This allows for a safer decompression ascent.

The Board-Easy Deco-Stop is currently on test at The National Diving & Activity Centre and will be installed at the 50m end of the pontoons for you to try out.

Board-Easy produce a range of semi-rigid boarding ladders for all types of craft that take the strain of getting out of the water. These ladders have a range of uses but are of particular interest to divers and snorkelers who require an easy way to board their boats and are especially suited for RIBs where normal boarding ladders are just too large to carry and stowe.

• Strong, Light Weight, Highly Visible, easy to use and store, made from boat and person friendly materials.

• Ladder sinks to correct position ready for use,
great for divers returning to boat.

RIB Ladder • Made from stabilised Sea Water proof materials with stainless fixings.

• Can be mounted in many different ways using your own Carabiner clips or lines.

• Fully adjustable from 50 cm up to 200 cm in standard size, longer if required.

• Comes with 3 rigid rungs as standard but can be ordered with extra rungs from the shop.

• Perfect for Inflatable Rib Boats where it is difficult to have standard rigid ladders on board.

• With a line attached, it can also assist in a man overboard situation where it could be an instant boarding aid.

• 12 months warranty against manufacturing defects, 7 days no quibble returns for unused and unopened product.Ladder Clip

NDAC is a Fourth Element Test Centre

Friday, May 27th, 2011

4th Element Test CentreThe National Diving & Activity Centre has recently been listed as a Fourth Element Test Centre.

Want to test dive products before you buy?

Because diving and the dive shop are more accessible at the NDAC, Fourth Element are working with us to enable you to try their products in the water before purchasing them.

The NDAC Shop Staff are familiar with the range of fourth element products and can give you expert advice on which of their lines to choose and try for yourself.

At the National Diving & Activity Centre we have the Arctic undersuit available to test.

These will be issued with all Drysuit rentals, and to students on courses where school drysuits are being used, such as the PADI Dry Suit Diver Speciality Course. Additionally, the sets will be used on a try before you buy basis. Rent a complete Arctic set for £10. This will be deducted from the subsequent purchase of a new Arctic thermal 3-piece set on production of the receipt.

The Arctic’s two layers of high insulation, low bulk fabric, ensure exceptional levels of thermal protection. Constructed with comfort and utility in mind, the minimalist design provides outstanding performance under closer fitting neoprene drysuits.

Find out why so many people choose the Arctic undersuit for yourself. . .
