Our gear maintains its peak performance in marine environments. Our fabric and foam experts know which materials have the right properties to perform at their best in the water.

Norseman has access to a large selection of high-performance foams, including brands that are almost exclusively available to us. We consider the density and porousness of foam when we select one for your project; we even carry special marine-grade foams that meet SOLAS approval. We also give special consideration to how our craftsmanship holds up in rough waters over long periods of time, from the type of coating we use on our fabrics to how well we reinforce our stitching. We make sure that we create a protective barrier between you and the water.

Being out in the water is risky if you don’t have the right gear. We want you to be confident about what you’ve got with you and know that we’ve got your back.

When you’re making gear that the medical industry depends on, you want to take all of the necessary steps to follow quality management practices. Our manufacturing facility in Langley, BC is a Centre of Excellence for foam fabrication. We have a current ISO 13485:2016 certification and comply with FDA Quality System Regulations (QSR) 21 CFR Part 820. Our foam experts understand the importance of choosing the right foams for different applications, from static dissipative and conductive grades for sensitive components to hypoallergenic foams, we understand what matters.

We also help the medical industry keep a safe working environment, even in unexpected situations. In the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Norseman was able to apply its expertise in industrial fabrics and foams to help create temporary shelters for triage applications and to turn large spaces into multiple secure sections to maximize processing and exam spaces.

Whatever the challenge, Norseman has the right materials and expertise to work with your team and develop a solution that follows the highest standards of quality.

Norseman’s gear for sports, recreation and leisure combines the best of our expertise in industrial fabrics and specialty foams. Using the best materials, we can make custom gear that is comfortable, will last from season to season, and can be easily stored and transported.

We make recreational tents and other leisure equipment using water-repellant duck canvas and manufactured with special features to keep you warm and comfortable on long trips. We think about your entire experience and how we can make your gear versatile for unexpected changes in weather conditions or uncomfortable surfaces.

Our specialty foams have been used for camp & recreational mats as well as custom applications to make kayaks, boats and other recreational sports equipment more comfortable for long-term use. Using our advanced foam fabrication capabilities, we can customize seats and backrests with your logo or a custom cutout, making your equipment stand out among your competitors.
