The DIVATOR Rescue BC is a new buoyancy compensator intended for diving in contaminated water, that is approved as a Combined Buoyancy and Rescue Devices (CBRD) – according to the norm EN12628. It is also approved as a buoyancy compensator according to the norm EN1809.
A combined buoyancy and rescue device (CBRD) is defined as an inflatable device that provides the wearer with a buoyancy compensator that also ensures a head up position at the surface even if the wearer is unconscious.
The materials used in the Rescue BC are all easy to clean and this makes the BC easy to decontaminate if needed. The main material of the BC is polyurethane, which is very durable and resistant to wear. Furthermore, the Rescue BC absorbs very little water, which allows it to dry very quickly.
It is equipped with MOLLE straps that makes it easy to attach various pouches and accessories. MOLLE is an acronym for “Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment”. The MOLLE system is used by a number of armed forces, such as the United States army and British army. The system’s modularity is based on rows of heavy-duty webbing stiched onto the BC, allowing attachmen of various MOLLE compatible accessories.
