Crackpots specialises in the design of custom, specialised or unusual equipment made to order for both the marine and terrestrial environmental consultancy services and the commercial fishing industry.
We can provide expert assistance in the design and fabrication of a diverse range of sampling, mooring, frames and mounts used to support high tech equipment, dredges and other gear. Manufactured items include transmitter plates and harnesses, core samplers, grabs, sediment profilers, camera stands, transect lines and quadrats, mounting frames for light loggers, CTD’s and ACDP’s etc, and specialist traps and nets used in the capture and sampling of biota.
We also offer a diverse range of site markers, moorings, anchors, floats, buoys, towing equipment, supporting gear and hardware.
Our staff includes experienced field biologists who have experience with equipment in the field and understand the issues faced with remote and often difficult environments. The need for reliable, robust equipment that works under a range of conditions is essential, and we make every effort to ensure that the equipment we supply will perform appropriately. Technical and personnel support can be offered at short notice from our office and, if necessary, in the field.
While we specialise in the design and manufacture of equipment for marine applications, our experienced team is extremely versatile, and can provide additional assistance in other related industries.
