<![CDATA[Kirby Morgan Bulletin 5: Unauthorized Resurfacing of Fiberglass Shells & Frames]]> http://www.amronintl.com/blog/kirby-morgan-bulletin-unauthorized-resurfacing-of-fiberglass-shells-and-frames/ Subject: Unauthorized “Painting” (resurfacing) Helmet Shells & KMB 18 Frames


Products affected: All fiberglass helmets / KMB 18 BandMasks.


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:


  • Damages can be hidden from view by those who re-coat the part but are not qualified to first inspect for damages.
  • Critical areas such as O-ring sealing surfaces can be easily compromised by untrained individuals.
  • Proper inspection of the part is no longer possible when surfaces are covered.
  • Kirby Morgan cannot guarantee the part, or work performed on the part, when done by anunauthorized party.


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.


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 ontotheir helmet shell (or frame): This is NOT recommended!


Do not compromise the quality or serviceability of your Kirby Morgan life support equipment.


Thank you.

For those customers that feel they must have a custom, decorative design painted or gelcoated ontotheir helmet shell (or frame): This is NOT recommended!

These parts are composed of 316L grade, highly corrosive resistant stainless steel.

<![CDATA[Kirby Morgan Bulletin 3: Product Maintenance Manuals on USB Flash Drive]]> http://www.amronintl.com/blog/kirby-morgan-bulletin-product-maintenance-manuals-on-usb-flash-drive/ Products affected: All Kirby Morgan Helmets & BandMasks®


Kirby Morgan® is happy to announce their new USB flash drive containing a Modular formatted Manual for helmets, and soon BandMasks®. The USB Modular Manuals will take the place of their previous, printed, hard copy manuals.


Currently, only the KM 97 and KM 37 helmets are shipping with the USB Modular Manuals. All other helmet models and both BandMasks® will be changing over to the USB flash drive Modular Manual in the near future.


The new modular format is also available on their website, for all helmet models at http://www.kirbymorgan.com/support/manuals-exploded-views.


KMACS-5 and EXO® BR Full Face Mask Manuals will be unaffected, as well as M48 SuperMask® & M48 MOD 1 Full Face Mask User Guides.


The Modular Manual features:


• The most up to date information and photographs.

• Easy “updatability” due to the electronic, modular format.

• It is downloadable and printable from our website, free of charge.

• A format divided into sections containing information in common with othermodels. For example, the Quad Valve & Tri Valve® Exhaust section or “module”shares the same content among all current Kirby Morgan® helmets.


Their original, printed version manuals are still available on their website. On the Manuals page found under “Support”, simply select “Pre April 2014” at the upper right. Original manuals remain available on the website for the purpose of “match up” reference with what many customers and dealers currently have on hand.


Remember, for the most up to date information, see the current Modular Manuals.
