CNC machined from a single piece of billet aluminium then anodised and painted.

All buttons and hardware are 316 stainless steel, providing superior corrosion resistance.



The housing comes standard with two Vans ODI side handles included.



Our housings are painted in a highly durable two-pack paint. The paint not only provides additional corrosion protection to your housing, but also provides an opportunity to customise the look of your housing.

You get to choose your colour(s)! And the options are almost endless.

You can choose a color from here, or from our Instagram page (@saltysurfhousings)

The EMBER housing comes with our ‘S-System’ port system, which is compatible with lenses up to 105mm diameter.

BASE price does NOT include a mandatory port option. You cannot use the housing without at least one port.

The EMBER housing also allows fitment of larger CINE lenses up to 115mm in diameter

Existing ports will work with the EMBER housing.

The front element in our ports is replaceable in less than 30 seconds by simply unscrewing the locking ring and dropping in a replacement acrylic screen we offer for purchase. So no more spending hours buffing scratched ports!
