The Viking WRS is a water rescue suit but without an adjustable torso and in a lighter material weight. The WRS provides protection to users such as fire rescue teams, coastguards, environment agency teams and other water borne personnel who are not divers, but are working on, near or above water. These suits are ideal for shallow water wading operations. Suits are front entry for ease of operation and comfort.

  • Lightweight durable material
  • “Vulca Seam technology” ensures water tight seams for the life of the suit
  • Abrasion and puncture resistant
  • Easy to clean when contaminated with biological contaminants
  • Front entry, non adjustable torso, for ease of operation

 

FABRIC

255 g/m2 Nylon outer / Butyl midply / Nylon inner. Light and flexible. Good puncture and abrasion resistance. Smooth close knit exterior surface.

COLOUR

Black legs with black top, Black legs with yellow top, Black legs with bronze top.

SOLAS reflectors are fitted as standard to the front and back of wrists, upper arms and backs of legs for visibility.

SEAMS

External seams stitched together. Internal seams are chemically treated and then an uncured rubber tape is applied to the seams using heat and pressure. Finally the suit is placed inside a vulcaniser whereby the rubber tape becomes cured into the material surface. This is known as “Vulca Seam technology”.

REINFORCEMENTS

WRS material is inherently abrasion and puncture resistant. Shaped “Superfabric” knee pads featuring flexible cut and abrasion resistant guard plates are fitted to the legs above and below the knees. Drain holes are also fitted to the pads.
