Cool suits combine the excellent protective properties of Lakeland protective fabrics with the comfort of breathable SMS technology. The coveralls feature superior protection fabric to the front of the body, the arms and legs and hood, whilst a breathable panel of Safegard SMS fabric to the rear, in the MicroMax TS and ChemMax 1 variants covered by a protective main-fabric panel sealed at top and sides. The rear panel provides breathability and helps maintain a higher level of comfort for the wearer than in standard disposables. Blue bound seams for superior protection and strength completes the MicroMAX NS Cool Suit (Type 5 & 6), whilst the MicroMax TS and ChemMax 1 and (Type 4) versions feature stitched and taped seams. Colour combinations make Cool Suits easier to recognise: MicroMax NS Cool Suit - white/blue, Micromax TS Cool Suit - white/orange and ChemMax 1 Cool Suit - yellow/green
Heat Protective Clothing
Lakeland ALM aluminised garments are designed for applications such as maintenance and repairs requiring work in proximity to high radiant and ambient heat.
Type 5 & 6 Protective Clothing
There are three basic fabric types used for Type 5 & 6 garments: SMS Polypropylene and Microporous film laminates and flashspun polyethylene. Lakeland offer two garment ranges using SMS fabrics and Microporous film laminate variants. Standard and premium options are available for both Safegard and MicroMAX, the premium versions offer unique features and benefits.
Chemical Protective Clothing
Lakeland offers users wider choice with five fabric options, each with a different level of permeation barrier against a range of chemicals. The result? Safety professionals can more accurately target garment selection at their specific application, both maximising protection and comfort AND minimising cost.
Flame Retardant Disposables
Standard disposable garments cannot be worn over thermal protective garments (“TPG’s” such as Nomex®coveralls) because, being polypropylene and/or polyethylene, they will ignite and burn, transferring heat through the TPG and dramatically increase the incidence of body burn in and flash fire provide PROTECTION against flames and heat and cannot be used to replaced EN11612 Thermal Protective Garments. Hence the standard requirement that they should not be worn next to the skin. Pyrolon disposable garments, with Type 5/6 and Type 3/4 options are constructed on unique fabric - a completely different technology - which will not ignite, melt or drip molten or burning debris. Pyrolon garments can be worn over TPG’s without compromising thermal protection. In fact Thermal mannequin testing has proved that whilst standard disposables will reduce thermal protection, Pyrolon garments can increase it – actively reducing the incidence of body burn.
