The Amron BIBS Mask was specifically designed to meet the rigorous NORSOK U-101 breathing standard and has been successfully performance tested by NUI/Thelma and validated by DNV.
Unlike other BIBS on the market today, Amron’s BIBS was built to withstand the extreme conditions found in a saturation diving environment and is rated to 350 and 450 meters of sea water (MSW).

Diver’s comfort was a major consideration. A flexible silicone oral-nasal has been designed to fit a wide range of face shapes. It surrounds both the nose and mouth, reducing strain on the nasal bridge and jaw.
A new, mesh full-head support is lighter and more breathable, which greatly improves comfort.
Amron engineers designed the masks completely from scratch, using advanced technologies to improve on traditional Built-in Breathing System. The breathing system uses minimal resistance for both inhaling and exhaling, requiring less effort for normal breathing. The inhaler side uses a pneumatically balanced second-stage regulator with fine-tune adjustment that allows the diver to control the breathing resistance of the regulator. The exhaust side is a pneumatically balanced second-stage regulator with a valve that expels gases overboard, eliminating carbon dioxide build-up. A unique microphone jack can be linked to an external speaker for clear communications with people outside the saturation system.
The Amron BIBS demand regulator is fully adjustable to allow for easy breathing during long administrations.
Maintenance is easy with the Amron BIBS Mask. The Demand and Exhaust valve assemblies can be easily removed by hand and maintenance can be performed with a minimal amount of tools.
The Amron BIBS Mask can be used with air, oxygen, or heliox.
The Amron BIBS mask features rugged housing and stainless steel valve assemblies, greatly improving durability over competitors’ masks and will stand up to the tough conditions usually found in hyperbaric chambers.
