Complete re-gelcoating of Kirby Morgan fiberglass helmet shells & KMB 18 frames MUST be done by a Kirby Morgan factory trained & approved facility only, or by Kirby Morgan.
The major reasons for this are:
For the reasons above, Kirby Morgan, along with its representatives, will not perform work on fiberglass helmet shells or KMB 18 frames with unauthorized re-gelcoats or re-surfacings. These shells and frames are unserviceable and will be condemned.
Any shell that has an altered or removed serial number will be condemned.
Above are some examples of serial number tampering.
Note: Please be aware that if the unit is 20 years or older, it may not be eligible for a complete, cosmetic re-gelcoat. However, functional repairs may still be an option. Also, please be aware that three is the maximum number of times a shell or frame may be re-gelcoated.
For those customers that feel they must have a custom, decorative design painted or gelcoated onto their helmet shell (or frame): This is NOT recommended!
Do not compromise the quality or serviceability of your Kirby Morgan life support equipment.
