Lakeland’s MicroMax NS Cool Suit is a breathable coverall made from microporous film laminate and delivers Type 5 /6 protection. MicroMax NS Cool Suit features a breathable rear panel and bound seams for added comfort, protection and durability.
- These breathable coveralls feature superior quality MicroMax NS microporous film laminate fabric to cover critical parts of the body, delivering an excellent barrier against light liquid splashes and sprays
- MicroMax NS Cool Suit is an effective barrier against hazardous dusts
- This breathable coverall features a comfortable and breathable SafeGuard GP rear panel which delivers air permeability of 43 cubic feet per minute
- Superior strong and durable bound seams offer additional protection against dust, liquid ingress*
- This breathable coverall reduces the ‘bellows effect’ ( the tendency to create suction of air and dust particle in the seam holes, cuffs, ankles and zip)
- For extra visibility, the MicroMax NS Cool Suit features distinctive blue and white colours
- Super-B style design – this coverall has been developed for a superior fit, wearability and durability
- A crotch gusset is included to reduce incidence of burst crotch and improve durability
- All Lakeland coveralls are suitable for asbestos handling and removal
Typical applications include:
- Warm or high temperature-controlled environments where Type 5 & 6 protection is required
- Low-level insecticide / pesticide spraying
- Wet applications in fibreglass manufacturing
- Boat building
- Wind blade manufacturing
- Pharmaceutical manufacturing
- General maintenance and cleaning applications
- Crime scene operations
- Low hazard emergency response applications
Make sure you select the correct garment for your application:
Gas or Vapour

|Dry particle protection
|General overall spray:
no pressure but coverall soaked
|Strong jet sprays –
|Surrounding gases or vapours
Physical factors such as strenuous work?
The physical demands of a task such as climbing ladders, crawling or working in confined spaces, especially if the chemical is highly toxic, may require higher strength fabric or a specific design, even though permeation analysis and/or the hazard spray type indicate a lighter/more comfortable garment.
Liquid or gas?
Liquid would normally suggest a Type 3 or 4 hazard. However, some chemicals have low boiling points, becoming vapour at low temperatures. In such cases a gas-tight suit might be appropriate. Such information can be obtained from Safety Data Sheets.
Type 3 vs Type 4 – the different spray tests
|EN 14605 – Type 3: ‘jet’ sprays
|EN14605 – Type 4: ‘liquid’ sprays
By identifying that your application is Type 4 only (rather than Type 3), this enables more options for garment design and choice, along with a greater level of comfort.
*About bound seams
The seam is wrapped with a folded strip of similar or stronger material and chain-stitched through all five layers in a single operation. This results in a tougher seam which also provides improved liquid and particle repellency at the seams as well as a tougher garment all round. A bound seam is not suitable for a chemical suit as it is not liquid tight.
