These blue Lakeland SafeGard 76 disposable coveralls are made from a breathable SMMS fabric with bound seams for superior strength, comfort and promotion of air permeability. These disposable coveralls provide Type 5/6 protection.
- Highly breathable so comfortable to wear
- Excellent protection against dry particles and splashes of liquids
- These general purpose disposable coveralls are constructed with a 55gsm 4-layer SMMS fabric – a double layer of melt-blown fibre (‘MM’) to enhance hazardous dust protection while maintaining a high level of comfort
- The air permeability of this coverall is 10 times higher than other materials such as flash-spun polyethylene and microporous film laminate, resulting in much higher comfort levels
- Air permeability reduces the ‘bellows effect’ (the tendency to create suction of air and dust particles in the seam holes, cuffs, ankles and zip)
- Superior strong and durable bound seams offer additional protection against dust, liquid ingress*
- 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
- To increase visibility, this Lakeland general purpose coverall is a distinctive blue colour for additional safety
- Lakeland SafeGard 76 disposable coveralls are also available in orange and white
Typical applications include:
- Asbestos handling and removal
- “Dry” applications in fibreglass manufacturing
- Windblade or similar manufacturing environments
- Wood and plastic processing
- Insulation handling and removal
- General manufacturing and maintenance
- Low level / low hazard sprays
Which garment to use:
Gas or Vapour
|Light spray/aerosol protection
|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.
