AP Diving SMB - Self Sealing
The self-sealing AP Diving SMB has a unique self-sealing baffle - or duckbill valve - that is forced shut, forming an airtight seal, on inflation. Size 1.4m x 20cm
Dispatched in 1 to 2 days
The self-sealing AP Diving SMB is inflated by simply purging a second stage in the open end when underwater. The really clever bit is in the mouth where the unique self-sealing baffle - or duckbill valve - is forced shut, forming an airtight seal, on inflation.
This self-sealing SMB also features a stream-lining flap which folds back over the mouth and prevents any sea-anchor drag effect when used in a current.
The AP Diving SMB can be used as a delayed SMB or inflated at the start of the dive and towed as a standard surface marker.
The SMB rolls up neatly and can be stowed in a pocket, attached to an external d-ring or wrapped in the dedicated SMB velcro pouch.
At the surface, the SMB is pulled upright by tension on the line and clearly marks the diver's position. The baffle prevents air spillage, and the buoy remains inflated making it easy for the surface crew to track the diver or for the diver to hold aloft and wave if separated from the boat.
A message slate, ID marker or reflector can be tied to the top eyelet.
Size 1.4m x 20cm
