Harness system with Backplate is an essential tool for Technical and Recreational divers. Backplate allows you to use your harness in different configurations such as single tank, diving, dbl-tank, rebreather and even sidemount. The only thing you need to change is a wing.
Backplated Harness is a great tool, very easy to set up and use. It’s solid and robust and will last forever. In our backplate we have added slots so you can install a weight system ( trim pouches ) or “FLY” weight system directly on your plate for optimal trim and balance in water.
To manufacture our Helium Dive Backplate we use top quality Made in Russia Titanium sheets. Our backplates are 2mm thick and has low weight.
Other manufactures uses Aluminium to reduce the weight, but AL is less stronger then Titanium and because of this the they had to use thicker sheets for Backplates is dbl the size of Titanium Backplate in most cases. So there is now advantage except cost.
Another Con factor of Aluminium hardware as it has corrosion in salt water especiallly when in direct contact with Stainless steel. Parts like boltsnaps, and bolt fasteners with wingnuts. This is why most of Al parts are covered with Anox to protect it from corrosion, but once coating is damaged the corrosion will take a place and Al hardware will not last longer, unlike Titanium, will last forever.
Edge Rounding Process
It’s just so easy to make a backplate now days, but to make it Quality and Ideal will take time and money. To manufacture Titanium Backplate , we use CNC Laser and CNC Milling machines as well as special tools to Round sharp edges. This is an expensive and time consuming process but this is what makes our Titanium Backplate TOP of the Market product.
Here at Helium Dive we use 4 Axis Miling Center by MAZAK to Round the edges of backplate, with special tool machine makes edges round, so your harness webbing will last longer as well as your gear. This process takes time that effect on the final price of the backplate. But remember, if you want quality, you have to pay for it.
Due to it strength and absolute corrosion resistance, Titanium is a great material for backplate as well as other harness hardware such as: D-rings, triglides, belt buckles and etc.
