For any specialty items that may be required on or off camera, we have an extensive inventory of accessories to complement any diver setup.
COMMERCIAL DIVE EQUIPMENT
Through our various contacts, and our own inventory, we can supply Commercial Diving Equipment for salvage or any other type of operation. All equipment is serviced regularly and meets the upmost standards. We also bring our expertise in the Commercial Diving world to your project and assist in getting it right the first time.
Many shows nowadays involve the use of Technical or Military Equipment. We have provided this gear for a number of different Film and TV projects over the years and have access to all different types of diving gear used by the armed forces. Many of these setups involve the use of Rebreather Equipment. Not only do we keep these units in stock, but have the knowledge and technical know how to keep these complicated pieces of equipment functioning.
U/W COMMUNICATION & FULL FACE MASKS
Whether you need to communicate to divers below, or need the camera operator to talk back to you, we can supply an Underwater Comm system capable of allowing production to talk to all personnel in the water. We have Underwater Speakers for playback, and microphones to hear ambient sounds underwater.
HOOKAH LINES/SURFACE SUPPLIED AIR SYSTEMS
MOBILE AIR COMPRESSOR/ON SITE AIR FILLS
Camera operators will on many occasions, find it easier to not wear a full SCUBA setup and opt for a simple air line. These long lines (called Hookahs) allow flexibility in positioning and movement. CINEMA SAFETY & MARINE SERVICES has air lines in any length, from 10′ to 250′ long.
When a larger operation is taking place and the ability to fill SCUBA tanks becomes an issue, our mobile dive compressor can be brought out to fill the job. At 15cfm with 2 lines for filling we can keep up with your dive crew and get them fresh, clean air every time. We also offer drop off service as we keep over 100 SCUBA tanks in our own inventory.
COURTESY REPAIRS ON SET/INSTRUCTOR OVERSIGHT
Not everyone dives on a regular basis like us. And not everyone uses their gear and has it serviced regularly like us. If a piece of equipment is not functioning properly, we can usually get it repaired on our Mobile Dive Trailer on site. We carry all the tools and parts to get it back up and going. Our repair technician is certified to repair most major brands and can usually get it up and running in a minimum amount of time.
Instruction on all our equipment is available through William Hall, owner of CINEMA SAFETY & MARINE SERVICES, and a qualified instructor of all our gear.
