The Van Veen grab is based on the Van Veen design. The Van Veen grab is made of AISI 316 stainless steel and the surface is electro polished. The grab itself is manufactured from 3 mm plate (250 cm²), 4 mm for 1000 cm² and 8 mm for a 2000 or 2500 cm².

There are 4 sizes of Van Veen:
12.110 - 250 cm², (0,025 m²)
