Certified compliant to the 2007 edition of NFPA 1994, Class 2 Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to CBRN Terrorism Incidents by an independent third party certification organization.
Class 2 garments are designed for situations where there is an immediate danger to life and health (IDLH) and must be worn with a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). This is the highest level of protection under the NFPA 1994 standard.
Encapsulated Level A garment design is our highest level of protection from from liquid splash and vapor/gas exposures for both the wearer and respiratory equipment
Double taped seams provide strong chemical resistance against heavy liquid splashes. A sewn seam is covered, both inside and outside of garment with compatible chemical-resistant material by heat-sealing.
Expanded faceshield provides wide 220 degree viewing angle. EX faceshield is three-layer laminate composed of 40 mil PVC/5 mil Teflon® /20 mil PVC
Front entry design allows wearer to partially don garment (maintain standby position) without assistance
Expanded back to accommodate self-contained air breathing apparatus (SCBA)
Vapor tight zipper. Extra long to increase garment opening and aid donning and doffing
Storm flap covers zipper which can be secured by the wearer with rugged hook and loop material to prevent intrusion at zipper
Attached internal Ansell® Barrier® gloves composed of five layer laminate film for a broad range of chemical protection
Neoprene gloves provide mechanical and physical durability to help protect inner Barrier® glove
Integrated socks composed of garment material
Attached flaps are designed to cover boot tops to help reduce potential for liquid intrusion
Two exhaust valves release higher pressure inside encapsulating garments while simultaneously helping to prevent inward leakage of external vapors or particles into the garment. One-way valves are positive pressure and open on demand. Valves include splash covers made of barrier material to help prevent liquid intrusion. Valves are located on left back of head and right lower back.
Internal adjustable waist belt system for support and improved fit
Each suit has a unique serial number and is fully tested at time of manufacture including positive air pressure integrity testing per ASTM F1052.
