Chemical protective suits are personal protective equipment that enable the wearer to work in chemically or microbiologically contaminated environments without adverse health effects.

Each chemical protective suit is designed for a specific use, as resistance to all conceivable substances and materials from the environment is not possible. Depending on the type of use, there are 6 types for chemical protective suits, which differ in terms of their protective effect from gas-tight to limited tightness against liquids.

We check for you whether non-reusable, limited-use or reusable protective clothing against chemicals for use as personal protective equipment (PPE) meets the specifications of the European standard DIN EN 14325 as well as the type-specific requirements.
