SIDEMOUNT REGULATOR SET – ABOUT APEKS
In the mid-1970s, two friends decided to combine their knowledge of diving and precision engineering. Working from a small garage in the north of England, they set about creating what have become some of the most respected regulators on the market.
Decades later that spirit of precision-engineering and craftsmanship continues. Still based in the north of England, Apeks now operates from a purpose-built factory where every element of the regulators are designed and manufactured in-house. Many members of staff have worked for Apeks since the early years of the business.
Our world-class production facility and the fact that we have total control over every manufacturing process make Apeks regulators the industry benchmark for design, quality and performance.
Our rigorous procedures comply with the highest standards under the European Quality Assurance System BS EN ISO 9001, ensuring Apeks’ quality is the envy of others. Our regulators have been tested by the world’s leading authorities on performance and were the first to pass EN 250 and be awarded the coveted CE mark. Apeks consistently top independent performance tests throughout the world, reflecting our commitment to investment in research and development. We are on the approved defence contractors list for the supply of diving equipment to armed forces around the world (for example all the British Navy’s first stages are made by Apeks) and we also supply emergency services such as coast guards, police forces and fire services.
The full range of Apeks dive equipment, which now includes regulators, bladders, instruments and accessories, has been adopted by technical divers around the world. Apeks equipment is being used to explore some of the deepest, coldest and most advanced dive environments on earth. Because when the environment demands, only one thing matters; that your dive kit is designed, developed and tested to keep you safe and comfortable.
The name Apeks comes from a combination of letters from the founders’ names. Ken Smith Ainscough and Eric Partington
