NFPA standards define the type of protection needed when you respond to different types of ChemBio emergencies. NFPA defines levels of protection based on whether the contaminant concentration is above or below a level immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH). We have tailored our ChemBio fabrics to provide protection in both the hot zone (contaminant concentrations above IDLH) and the warm zone (contaminant concentrations below IDHL).
Select Your Suit
NFPA standards define different classes of certification for different response teams, which translates to different levels of protection. Check out suits made with durable GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics, which allow you to move freely and remain well-protected and on-scene longer.
