Hazmat and splash suits complete your protective equipment

Whether in liquid, solid or gaseous form: chemicals can irritate the skin by contact or even pass through the skin – with potentially serious consequences for your health. That is why working with hazardous materials requires high standards in protective clothing – like our reliable protective suits. Since over 60 years we offer different types of hazmat and splash suits, tailor-made for a large variety of application areas in the industry.

Splash suits

Lightweight and comfortable to wear: Our liquid and spray-proof splash suits allow reliable protection against the finest dusts and powders, many concentrated inorganic acids and alkalis. They are also resistant to a wide range of organic liquid chemicals. The overalls are CE certified and type 3, 4, 5 and/or 6 classified.

Five questions to obtain the right hazmat suit

Which hazardous substances are you exposed to during your work?

  • If you know the hazmat, you can take tangible measures to protect yourself. The Dräger VOICE hazardous substances database lets you know which hazmat suit protects against which hazardous materials and for how long.
  • If you do not know the hazardous substance that’s present, always assume the worst case scenario and select the next higher degree of protection.

Dräger VOICE

Do you have to wear breathing apparatus combined with a protective suit?

  • If no respiratory protection is needed, simple overalls or other protective garment that protect against the respective chemical agents will be sufficient.
  • If you work with filter equipment, it is best to use a hazmat suit, equipped with integrated fullface mask or facial sleeve.
  • If you need an SCBA, make sure the equipment is comfortable to wear either over or under your protective suit.

What is your work environment like?

  • A traffic accident requires you to reach in between or handle sharp-edged objects. A protective suit with a higher mechanical strength, such as a reusable model, is recommended when your work environment is unpredictable.
  • If damage is unlikely, you can also use a limited-use suit.

How easily can the pollution caused by the hazardous substance be removed (decontamination)?

  • If the hazardous substance is difficult to remove from surfaces, you should wear a hazmat suit with the SCBA worn on the inside of the suit. By this means you can protect it from contamination.

What are the associated risks of working with the hazardous substance?

  • If it is a very cold hazardous substance such as liquefied gas, the material of the suit must not become brittle or fracture when exposed to the cold.
  • If the hazardous substance is flammable at ambient temperatures, the hazmat suit must be flameresistant.
  • If there is a risk of explosion in the area where the hazardous substance is leaking, the hazmat suit must have the relevant electrostatic properties.
  • If the hazardous substance is a toxic gas, only a gastight chemical protection suit should be used, never a splash-guard suit or splash-tight suit.
