Not all chemical suits protect against all chemicals, so choosing the correct barrier material is one of the first steps you’ll need to take.

At pH7, our team of HAZCHEM Safety Specialists have the experience and tools available to simplify this selection process.  We have the largest range of chemical protective apparel in New Zealand and access to the Ansell Guardian permeation and degradation database which lists hundreds of common chemicals that have been tested to see how long each barrier material is able to hold out before “breakthrough” is detected.

Did you know that chemical suits can be classified into “types”?  The European Standards refer to 6 “Types” of chemical protective clothing from Type 1 – Gas Tight Chemical Protective Clothing down to Type 6 – Reduced Spray Suits. pH7 offers all protection types and can help you select the best chemical suits for your job. Click here to download our guide to understanding chemical protective coverall types.

We’ll not only discuss the type of chemical suit you need but also other factors such as how you’re planning to connect chemical protective gloves and respiratory protection.

We can also explain the various seam technologies and how best to don and doff your chemical suits as well as ongoing care and maintenance.
