There are 21 individual cubbyholes to store equipment, a work surface 80cm deep and nearly 14m long, plus floor space of over 21 square metres. Five air-guns are positioned around the room, 16 sets of power sockets in both 220 and 110 volts, paper towel dispensers for cleaning o-rings, a shelf running the length of the work surface for battery chargers and eight fluorescent under-shelf lights for additional illumination for the all important o-ring check. The room is climate controlled for comfortable working conditions and also has a 42-inch HD flat-screen TV mounted on the wall with both HDMI and USB connections, so you can show those pictures off after a great day of diving.
