Typhoon was founded 70 years ago and was the first company in the UK to make wetsuits. They became market leaders in diving and sailing equipment.
In 1976 Typhoon developed the first lightweight drysuit. In 1992 Typhoon designed a revolutionary new suit using Clotex – a soft polyester trilaminate fabric alongside other breathable materials, which is now standard for most surface drysuits – making Typhoon suits the most comfortable yet toughest drysuits available.
Today Typhoon is the world’s largest manufacturer of drysuits and a key player in the diving and watersports markets with products specifically designed for all its key leisure markets: diving, sailing, surfing, kayaking, water skiing/boarding and other watersports.
Typhoon can customise products to individual requirements such as made-to-measure drysuits or adding extras from pockets to custom zips and logos. As part of the 3Si Group of companies Typhoon can provide a complete range of marine safety products.
Typhoon’s reputation is based on quality, which is crucial when you are supplying lifesaving equipment. All of the drysuits and lifejackets are made to the highest standards and each one is pressure tested before despatch and are made to CE and ISO9000 standards. Their track record of supplying military organisations and RNLI continuously for over 30 years shows the level of quality produced and so were the first to give their main products (drysuits, wetsuits and lifejackets) a three year warranty on workmanship.
Typhoon supply all the major military markets around the globe and also commercial customers such as the RNLI, British waterways, Environment Agency, major oil companies as well as recreational users in the diving and leisure markets.
