Kirby Morgan is proud to announce new hood and face seal assemblies for the KMB (Kirby Morgan Band/Mask) series of diving masks. The new hood & face seal assemblies will be available in three different sized (S M L) molded face seals that can be combined with two different sized hoods (SM and ML).
The new hood & face seals will be available for purchase separately to start and are not a production option for KMB-Band Masks® at this time. Once correctly sized (go to www.kirbymorgan.com go to Band/Masks under Products for face measurement system) the new face seals fit against the divers face better for improved safety and comfort. The face seals are molded out of a durable synthetic rubber that does not require foam backing. The ear pockets are also molded into the face seals for added protection of the communications.
The two sizes of hoods smallmedium (SM) and mediumlarge (ML) help prevent bunching of the hood behind the head and provide a more snug and comfortable fit.
The new hood & face seal assemblies retrofit to all earlier KMB-Band Masks® 18 and 28 but require longer bronze band screws (530-097). The new longer bronze band screws simplify the installation of the hood & face seal assemblies solve the stainless on stainless galling issues and retrofit onto all KMB-Band Masks®. Kirby Morgan recommends upgrading all stainless steel band screws (530-095) on existing units to the new longer bronze band screws 530-097 (2 per mask). US retail $1.40 each (Not available on an exchange basis). The 530-095 shorter stainless steel band screws are now obsolete.
Available in 2 sizes: small-medium or medium-large help prevent bunching of the hood behind the head and provide a more snug and comfortable fit.
