DESCO Diving Helmets
DESCO offers a full range of classic style breast-plated diving helmets along with the traditional DESCO Air Hat. All of our helmets are surface supplied free flow type. Every diving helmet we build is fully functional and made with the utmost attention to detail and precision. Our U. S. Navy Mark V and Helium diving helmets conform to the USN Bureau of Ships drawings. They are the real deal, not replicas. Our U. S. Navy Diving helmets have been in continuous production since 1942. All of our diving helmets adhere to industry standards in quality and safety.
Limited Edition Diving Helmets
DESCO has produced limited edition helmets for the Historical Diving Society on three occasions. The first was the 80th Anniversary USN Mark V Helmet (1915-1995). The second was the DESCO 60th Anniversary Abalone Diver’s Helmet (1937-1997). These two series were limited edition runs of 20 helmets. The third limited edition helmet was the USS Squalus Helium Helmet. These custom diving helmets commemorated the raising of the USS Squalus in 1939. The series was limited to 26 helmets in memory of the 26 souls lost in the sinking. All the HDS helmets had special tagging and markings.
DESCO is proud to offer customization and collectors services for diving helmets including repair, modification, and general maintenance. We can supply presentation helmets with engraved tags. We will customize standard helmets by mixing and matching parts from other models and we will custom create special order helmets.
